Advance Northumberland is a unique economic regeneration company, newly established as a wholly owned company of Northumberland County Council.

As the Council’s primary regeneration development vehicle, the company has a clear remit to improve prosperity, quality of life and increase business activity throughout the communities of Northumberland. Advance Northumberland currently employ a wide range of investment, development and regeneration capabilities to shape places and promote economic growth and high quality outcomes for the community of Northumberland.

Advance Northumberland is seeking to increase the number of Non-Executive Directors on its board which is currently made up of representatives from both the public and private sector.

Advance Northumberland is also committed to increasing the diversity of our existing Board, and positively improve the balance of female and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Non-Executive Director representation. To achieve this, we are seeking applications from high quality individuals whose background, experience and identity will broaden and enhance a balance of perspectives in developing the strategy and operational effectiveness of the company.

All applications will be considered on merit against our selection criteria. However, to improve diversity of leadership at NED level, we positively welcome and encourage applications from women and people who are BAME.

Non-Executive Directors are paid a nominal allowance of £4,000 per annum and are asked to commit to at least 12 meetings per year, plus induction and training in the responsibilities of a company director. All appointments are for up to 3 years (with the option to re-appoint).
