Board Composition Policy

Download information as a PDF Document.

Statement
The Melton is a progressive organisation which recognises and promotes diversity in its workforce. We appreciate the value of difference and we are committed to protecting the rights of all employees.

Ensuring diversity in the Society is about building a culture in which the whole organisation works together and in which difference is valued. The Board’s ambition for this is articulated in the Equal Opportunities Policy contained in the Staff Handbook. This statement on Board composition is intended to make clear to all our stakeholders that these values and beliefs apply equally to the Board.

Requirement
In line with Rule 12 (1) of the Society, the Board of Directors must not be comprised of more than 8 nor less than 5 members.

Achieving a diversity and balance of skills, independence and experience shall be the key determinant of any new appointment to the Board where selection of the most suitable candidate will be paramount.

No candidate for Board membership shall be discriminated against on grounds of gender, marital status, race, ethnic origin, colour, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, religion, age, social circumstances or any other irrelevant factor.

Realising the benefits of gender diversity the Board will endeavour, subject to the considerations above, to maintain each of male and female representation at Board level of at least 25% of its composition.

All Directors must meet the test of fitness and propriety laid down by the Prudential Regulation Authority and Financial Conduct Authority at all times.

Reporting
The Nominations Committee will report annually, in the Corporate Governance section of the Annual Report and Accounts, on the process used in relation to Board appointments. This report will include a summary of the Board Composition Policy with update on the gender ratios of Board membership.

Review
The Nominations Committee will review the Policy annually. This will include an assessment of its effectiveness and whether the desired gender representation levels remain appropriate. The Committee will recommend any necessary Policy revisions to the Board for approval.
