  • Closing 22nd November 2019


  • Advertised from 11th October 2019

Role

Do you want to improve your personal wellbeing?... and your career prospects? Do you want to play a role in improving the lives of others and the Clydesdale area? If the answer is “YES” then volunteering as a Management Committee member with us might be the thing for you!

We are looking to recruit people as voluntary committee members. We need people who are motivated by a positive desire to work with us in achieving our Vision of ‘Quality homes and excellent services for all - for today and the future’.

We are a Registered Social Landlord and Scottish Charity with 738 affordable rented homes across rural South Lanarkshire and the Clyde Valley. We have high tenant satisfaction levels and a track record of strong performance. Our current challenges include improving the energy efficiency of our homes, supporting tenants with money problems and establishing a community hub.

We need new committee members who have a range of skills and personal qualities who will strengthen our leadership in achieving the best we can for tenants and other service users. We would welcome interest from individuals with a commitment to our objectives and who have appropriate skills, but in particular would welcome applications from people with experience and knowledge in one or more of the following areas:

· Property maintenance/construction

· Governance

· Finance

· Tenant/community engagement

Although Management Committee work is unpaid, we will reimburse out of pocket expenses, including care and travelling costs. We also provide comprehensive induction training as well as supporting ongoing personal development. The main reward though is knowing that you are part of a team that is helping to improve the lives of others.

Our Management Committee meets monthly in Lanark (usually held on the last Wednesday of the month – between 6.00 and 8.00pm).
