Jon is currently an Associate Director with a local NHS Trust. He is responsible for the transformation of hospital services and developing new health and social care models of care across Norfolk and Waveney.
Previously, Jon occupied a number of senior management roles in both local and national government. He also works as a public sector consultant, which involves working with the Council of Europe, and central and local government organisations in several Eastern European countries. Jon has a proven track record of performing and delivering in a number of senior non-executive director positions.
As a former Broadland board member, Jon served as the Chair of the Group Audit & Risk Committee and also sat on the Remuneration & Membership Committee.
Why did Jon first apply to become a board member?
My career has been in delivering public services, and the ethos of ensuring that everyone in society receives key services, regardless of background etc, is important to me. Housing is a key need for everyone and not everyone can afford, chooses to, or wants home ownership.
Housing associations offer an alternative to home ownership and private renting. I wanted to be a board member to see how I could help ensure quality housing is open to all.
I enjoy working with great people, Broadland staff as well as fellow non-executive directors, who are all focused on the same thing.
Being a board member gives me an understanding of what it’s like to be on the ‘other side of the governance fence’. As a Director in the NHS, my role at Broadland Housing has added much value to how I approach my work.
