Job Description

Based in Fort William

Lochaber Housing Association (LHA) is a Scottish Charity (SCO 30951), registered as a Society under the Cooperative and Community Benefits Act 2014 and with the Scottish Housing Regulator (HAL151). Responsibility for running the Association lies with its locally drawn Board of Management.

LHA was established in 1988 by concerned local residents to address the chronic housing needs of Lochaber’s landward communities and to help alleviate the longstanding needs of Fort William, the second largest conurbation in the Highlands. The resulting community development pressures were, and still are, exacerbated by housing market prices far beyond the reach of most local people and by the scarcity of other, affordable options.

Since then, we have built nearly 800 houses, have a busy and active development programme and two successful subsidiaries – Lochaber Care & Repair and LHA Property Services – employing over 50 staff in all. We are now a vital and well-respected ‘community hub’ organisation with a wide range of good partners.

Our mission is to provide good quality, truly affordable housing opportunities and services for local people in their preferred communities, thereby identifying and meeting local needs and helping to maintain and develop thriving communities throughout Lochaber.

Due to the retirement of our longstanding CEO, we can now offer candidates this rare opportunity to lead and further develop the successful delivery of our mission. You will need to demonstrate a solid track record of success in your career to date, including evidence of your proven managerial and leadership qualities. LHA is a well governed and ambitious organisation, committed to operating with full accountability and our sense of purpose and responsibility to the people of Lochaber remains undiminished.

This will be a very fulfilling job for a team player who can show us they understand Lochaber’s housing-related needs and have the proven skills, imagination and drive to rise to and meet all the challenges involved. In return, we offer the successful candidate a great working environment and full EVH terms and conditions of employment, including a generous defined contribution pension scheme.

Closing date is 10:00 AM on Monday 12 July 2021. All applications will be acknowledged, and candidates will subsequently be kept informed over the progress of their application.

Interviews will thereafter be conducted in Fort William on Thursday 29 and Friday 30 July.

A basic disclosure check will be required to be undertaken by the successful candidate.
