At Fife Housing Group, we develop and build sustainable communities, making it our priority to provide homes which help our tenants live the lives they choose.
As one of the largest independent housing associations in the east of Scotland, we manage approximately 2,500 properties and have an annual turnover in the region of £12.7 million.
We employ 80+ colleagues at our offices in Dunfermline and have been recognised as one of the Top 10 Housing Organisations to work for in the UK. We are registered under Charitable Rules with the Scottish Housing Regulator, the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator and with the Financial Services Authority.
Our subsidiary company, Yourplace, owns 55+ properties which are let at market rents.
The Group is governed by a voluntary Board and we are currently looking to strengthen our overall governance arrangements through the appointment of new Board Members, whose skills and knowledge will help to shape our strategic direction.
Candidates should be able to demonstrate good interpersonal skills, independence of thought and an ability to challenge constructively whilst making balanced and informed decisions.
Knowledge of social housing is desirable but not essential, however, experience of working collaboratively at a strategic level would certainly be beneficial.
We are particularly keen to hear from applicants who live within our area of operation and, as an inclusive, equal opportunities employer, are keen to attract diversity onto our Board.
