Role

Fyne Homes is a Registered Social Landlord, Scottish Charity and Registered society under the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014. Operating in Argyll and Bute since 1936. (initial activity delivered by William Woodhouse Strain). In April 2002 the organisation was renamed Fyne Homes, a charitable affordable housing provider, taking in to account the wider geography of operation. Fyne Homes have an open membership and community based approach, governed by a Voluntary Management Committee. Over the years three subsidiary companies have been formed which together with Fyne Homes now form the “Fyne Group”.

We remain an active and aspirational developer and continue to enjoy an excellent reputation and strong record of development, innovation and wider regeneration in the local communities we serve. We remain fully committed to working in partnership with individuals, groups and other organisations to maximise the benefits we deliver to local people, and the improvement of the communities in which they live.

We aim to tailor our services to provide appropriate, reliable, accessible housing and support. We respect our customers, staff and committee and approach our business and activities with openness and integrity. By engaging with our tenants and stakeholders we are able to continuously improve our services to meet local needs. Through our best value approach we aim to ensure housing costs are affordable, managing resources effectively to maintain and improve homes to the highest standards.

Our current post holder is soon to retire and we are now looking for someone who possesses the right mix of skills, steady hand, imagination and drive that we need. You will be joining an ambitious and well governed organisation with an existing high performing Management Team.

The successful candidate will be both passionate about, and committed to, our vision and mission to remain an independent locally controlled social landlord which builds, manages and maintains our stock to the highest standards. We are a community centred organisation which believes in strong partnership working. We are also committed to delivering excellent services; and always in a fully transparent fashion underpinned by demonstrable integrity in all that we do. We need our next Chief Executive to fully support these values, and to have the ability to connect with, and understand, the challenges faced by people living within our many rural communities.

In return, we offer the successful candidate a beautiful working environment and excellent terms and conditions of employment, including a generous defined contribution pension scheme.
