Our Governance

Andium is a company limited by guarantee with a single shareholder, the States of Jersey, represented by the Minister for Treasury and Resources. Andium’s governance arrangements are set out in its Articles of Association, which were included in the legislation (P.60/2014) on the housing transformation programme. The Articles of Association also provides for a Memorandum of Understanding which puts in place an accountability framework appropriate to a business wholly owned by the States.

Board of Directors

The Articles stipulate that the Board of Andium shall comprise a maximum of nine Directors-

  • A minimum of four and a maximum of five Independent Directors
  • A minimum of one and a maximum of two Tenant Directors
  • The Chief Executive and the Finance Director of the Company.

The Independent and Tenant Directors are appointed in accordance with the requirements of the Jersey Appointments Commission, which provide for an open and transparent process.
