Cordale Housing Association are welcoming applications from enthusiastic and skilled individuals who are passionate and committed to making a meaningful difference for tenants, service users and the wider Renton community.
Cordale Housing Association is an award-winning organisation who has made a significant impact in the area through the provision of almost 500 new homes to replace the previous poor housing, which has immeasurably improved the lives of residents in the area. In addition, we are nearing competition of our community garden, have provided local job opportunities, developed housing for older people along with the provision of support to remain independent and have participated in a host of other local services which engage and benefit the local community.
It's an exciting time to join the Cordale management committee. We have completed a transformation programme, resulting in significantly improved performance and services, and we’re now mapping a strategy for further improvements.
Cordale management committee members are an essential and valued part of the organisation. The team is required to give good independent judgement and sound management of Cordale to deliver excellent outcomes for tenants and service users.
We welcome applications from a range of backgrounds and experience. You will have a genuine interest and commitment to social housing, putting our customers at the centre of everything we do to continue delivering on our mission of providing sustainable homes, flexible services and vibrant communities.
We are committed to equality and diversity and welcome approaches from all sections of the community.
What can we offer?
This is a voluntary, unpaid position but management committee members can claim travel expenses for attending meetings. IT equipment is available for use by the management committee members if required. We also offer management committee members a training programme (both in-person and e-learning) and encourage them to develop their knowledge and leadership skills by attending various events and joining group sub-committees.
You will need to commit to attending 10 management committee meetings per year. These meetings are usually held in the early evening and can be attended in person or remotely. In addition, you will be expected to take part in annual skills development and training provided by the Association to support you in your role as a management committee member.
