Welsh Water call for Independent Members to join Glas Cymru

FINAL CALL: Are you someone who can make a difference in your community?

Welsh Water is not-for-profit and unique in the utilities sector. Our parent company, Glas Cymru, is a company formed for the purpose of owning, financing and managing Welsh Water.

For the sake of a few days’ voluntary work a year, you could help Glas Cymru be even more effective for the benefit of our customers. As the only not-for-profit water company in England and Wales, we’re searching for energetic, enthusiastic people from all backgrounds to hold our Board of Directors to account and serve our communities in the best way we can.

“We are recruiting new independent Members – which is what we have instead of shareholders. They meet twice a year and hear from us regularly about the work we do, so they can make sure our Board of Directors are running the company as they should. The membership works to high standards of corporate governance and draws on the varied professional expertise of a committed, high calibre group of individuals. Knowledge of the water industry is not essential.

While it is an unpaid, voluntary position – you are reimbursed expenses and it’s a great chance to oversee the work of one of Wales’ biggest companies. There are two formal meeting days a year, and two optional regional meetings, to give you a chance to get involved. 

There’s only a few more days left to apply – and we’re really keen that our Membership represents everyone that we serve – so please consider applying before the closing date of next Wednesday, 9 September 2020.”
