Top job! Board Members

  • Management Board
  • Unpaid
  • Edinburgh
  • Closing 3rd October 2019

We are looking for voluntary Board Members for Persevere Developments Limited (PDL), a wholly owned subsidiary of Port of Leith Housing Association.

Our ambition is to make Leith and north Edinburgh the best place to be. We are focussed on the needs of customers and communities in Leith and north Edinburgh where the Port of Leith Housing Association Group owns and manages almost 3,000 high quality homes. We are playing a major role investing in new and existing homes and supporting the ongoing regeneration of these areas and including the Edinburgh Waterfront. We are widening the choice of housing available, developing both new social housing and also new mid-market rented housing through our commercial subsidiary company, Persevere Developments Limited.

None of this can be achieved without the commitment of an experienced voluntary Board of Management to provide leadership, strategic direction and oversight, working with the Leadership Team and staff to determine the future direction of PDL and monitor its performance.

We are looking for Board Members who share our values, can contribute at a strategic level, and can demonstrate understanding of the housing development and management system with commitment to support people and develop communities in Leith/north Edinburgh.

It is an exciting time to join the Group as we are finalising our new and ambitious strategic plan for 2020-2025.

We aim to strengthen and diversify the PDL Board in terms of gender, ethnicity and age, and particularly welcome applications from women and members of the community who are underrepresented.

Although these roles are non-remunerated, reasonable expenses will be reimbursed and the Group will provide training at no cost.
