Salary and Employment Details
We are an ambitious, forward-thinking organisation, committed to providing quality, affordable homes throughout the north and west rural Stirling Council area. A large part of our area of operation falls within the boundary of Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park.
Our vision is for Strong and Attractive Rural Communities and our supporting mission is to provide affordable, quality housing and support community aspirations.
We are already on target to deliver circa 140 new homes by 2023. This is a great time to join our Board as we launch our new Group Strategic Plan 2020-2023 and Tenant Participation Strategy 2020-2023. If you are passionate about great housing and building strong communities then joining our Board could be for you.
We are looking for new Board members to sit on our parent company Board. This role offers you the opportunity to lead on the strategic direction of a growing organisation, playing a key role in delivering high quality services to our customers, defining goals and targets and working with our involved customers to scrutinise our performance.
Whilst we would welcome applications from a wide and diverse range of individuals, we would particularly be interested in hearing from those who:
· share our values and the values of the social housing sector
· have a genuine commitment to strengthening our local communities
· have specific experience of being a social housing tenant, business,
finance, asset management or development skills.
· have the confidence and ability to question and challenge effectively
· have a good understanding of governance and the roles and
responsibilities of being a board member.
Board members learn new skills around governance, finance and strategic planning. Being a Board member can be a rewarding and enriching experience.
We offer a detailed induction programme for new Board members and an in-depth training programme. The role requires a considerable time commitment, attending Board meetings (held seven times a year) preparation for meetings, attending strategy days and training sessions.
We value commitment and experience as much as qualifications and offer a full induction programme and ongoing support to all our Board members to help them in this challenging and rewarding role.
