Application for Board Members
Apex provides high quality homes and delivers care and support to individuals in a variety of settings across Northern Ireland. We are a registered housing association led by a voluntary Board of Management.
Our vision is ‘for every person to enjoy great quality homes and support, in vibrant and caring communities’ and our values underpin all that we do: ‘we care; we take ownership; we do things well; we work together; we show respect.’
Apex provides general needs housing for families and single people and purpose built accommodation and related services for older people, those with learning difficulties, mental health difficulties, alcohol/drug addictions, those who are physically disabled and young people in need of support. We also provide a range of services and support for tenants and the wider community through our community investment programme.
Apex’s turnover is currently £55m per annum. We manage more than 6,000 homes and develop around 400 new homes each year.
We are seeking forward thinking board members who share our values and can help us to deliver our vision.
This is a voluntary role; however all out of pocket expenses incurred undertaking the role will be reimbursed.
Our Board normally meet 6 times per year and attendance at Committee meetings, training and events means that the average time commitment is approximately 10 days per year.
We are seeking applications from those with knowledge and experience at a senior level in relevant organisations, who can demonstrate skills and experience in one or more of the following areas:
- financial management
- health and social care
- legal matters
- education and training
Experience in the public, private, community or voluntary sectors and knowledge of good governance is desirable.
Apex is an equal opportunities employer. At this time we particularly welcome applications from people with a disability and members of the Protestant community, due to under representations in parts of our organisation.

Closing date for receipt of applications is Monday 16th November at 12.00 noon.
