Top job! Director

  • Full time
  • £83,245 – £86,283
  • Ayr
  • Closing 23rd October 2023

Ayrshire Housing has grown considerably since being established in April 2003, and now holds stock of around 1,700. Over the years we have considerably extended the range of housing solutions we offer, along with delivering many award-winning new builds. We enjoy an excellent reputation and strong record of development, innovation, and wider regeneration in the local communities we serve with much of this activity taking us far beyond housing.

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 further, ongoing improvement of the communities in which they live.

Our long serving Director will shortly retire and so we wish to offer the right person a unique opportunity to lead us through the challenges ahead and onwards to continued success.

You will be joining an ambitious and well governed organisation with an existing high performing Management Team. We remain an active developer with a busy programme stretching ahead.

The successful candidate will share our desire to remain an independent locally controlled Association which builds, manages, and maintains stock to the highest possible standards both within the main towns and areas beyond. You will demonstrate a solid understanding of the social housing sector, and will exhibit significant managerial work experience including leading, inspiring, developing, and managing staff effectively.

We are a community centred organisation which believes in strong partnership working, with statutory authorities and others. We are also committed to respectful, active engagement with our tenants and the community beyond in shaping the way we deliver upon our commitments and service delivery. We need our next Director to fully support these values.

We offer full EVH terms and conditions of employment, including attractive pension options.

A basic disclosure check will be required to be undertaken by the successful candidate.
