About Caledonia Housing Association
Caledonia Housing Association Group, with over 6,500 homes owned and managed, is one of Scotland’s leading providers of high-quality affordable homes for people in housing need. We are committed to providing “Homes and Services that make life better”. We achieve this by ensuring that Associations in the Group continue to be well-managed, financially strong and positioned to provide excellent outcomes for our tenants and other customers. Providing high quality homes and services that are affordable, sustainable and valued by our customers is a key aim.
A major feature of our work is developing innovative approaches to ensure that we deliver on our customer service and value for money aims through the efficiency and effectiveness of our business.
Being part of our Board is an excellent opportunity to be involved in making a real difference to our customers and communities. This is an exciting time for us as we continue with our innovation and digital transformation to make sure we are putting our customers first.
Caledonia Housing Association is currently seeking new Board members who are keen to make a difference and have a real interest in the provision and management of social housing that has a positive impact on lives and communities. To complement the existing Board profile, we are particularly keen to hear from people with skills and experience in social housing, social work and community care, human resources, and voluntary and community groups.
There is no requirement to have had any previous Board experience - what is important is a passion to make a difference and being prepared to contribute to discussions that enable positive and collective decision-making.
We are particularly keen to hear from under-represented groups and tenants of Caledonia Housing Association.
Following the continued success of our Volunteering project, we are seeking to recruit a Volunteer Co-ordinator on a fixed term contract until June 2022.
The post holder will continue to support and develop the role of volunteers at our Sheltered Housing schemes across Dundee and Perthshire to work with other older people to encourage the development of activities and opportunities for social interaction that promotes good health and wellbeing.
We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated individual with excellent communication and management skills; preferably with experience of working with Volunteers and partnership working and who enjoys working with older people.
This post is supported by the Association and the Reshaping Care initiative which seeks to develop community capacity to re-shape care for older people in Scotland.
