We all need to stay at home to protect ourselves and others. However, those who are well and not at risk can provide essential support for their family, friends and neighbours who cannot leave the house.

Description

Grampian Housing Association, with its subsidiaries, Kirkgate Developments and TLC Housing Maintenance, is a leading provider of social housing and related services throughout the North East of Scotland. The Association is a Registered Social Landlord and Charity, with a portfolio of 3500+ homes under management and an annual turnover of over £18m.
It is an exciting and challenging time at the Association and we are looking for several new Board members with the drive and ambition to help us achieve our strategic aims during our business transformation process. This will see the move to a new operating model and a commitment to digital participation to realise our vision of self-organising teams supporting self-managing tenants.
The Board’s role is to provide strategic direction and corporate governance. We are looking to recruit Board members who can add value by sharing their knowledge and experience in areas such as:

Housing / Property / Construction.
Charity / Social Enterprise.
Finance / Audit.
An open mind and commitment to making a difference are also essential for the role. Board members are asked to prepare for and attend up to 11 Board meetings a year in Aberdeen (normally held in the early evening), and occasionally attend ad hoc events, team away days etc.
In return for giving your time and sharing your expertise, we offer:
The opportunity to make a significant, positive difference to people’s lives in the local community.
Interesting and challenging meetings, events and away days.
The opportunity to work at board / strategic level.
Being part of an organisation who really care about the difference they make to people’s lives
Provision of training and development to enhance your own knowledge and skills.
Internal and external networking opportunities.

The role of a Board member is voluntary and unpaid, other than reimbursement of approved travel costs or associated expenses.
