Role

Atrium Homes, based in Kilmarnock, is a Registered Social Landlord and Scottish Charity providing social housing to over 1,200 households; factoring services are provided to Atrium Homes by its subsidiary as well as to over 1,400 owners.

Collectively, the Board is responsible for exercising scrutiny, establishing organisational strategy and objectives and for monitoring operational performance, and we are currently looking to strengthen our overall governance through the appointment of a small number of Board Members.

We are always looking out for new Board members to help us achieve the right mix of skills and experience to match our business needs. Skills and knowledge that we would love to see further represented on our Board just now include an experienced Finance Professional, individuals with experience of Social Housing or of working in the third sector, especially working with vulnerable groups, or a business leader interested in the work of social landlords.

Equally, we are always very keen to attract people who have had experience of our services as customers and who are committed to helping us improve those services.

What is most important to us is that Board members share our core values and objectives, possess an inquiring mind and demonstrate a willingness to challenge.

All positions are voluntary but reasonable expenses to facilitate attendance at meetings will be paid. Induction and further training will also be provided.

Notes:

In the first instance, most successful applicants will join the Board as co-optees, until formal election is confirmed by the Membership at the AGM in August. Board members are expected to attend ten evening meetings in the year plus four quarterly meetings for one chosen sub-committee, and annual planning and review meetings. Board meetings use a virtual arrangement for the majority of the meetings, and we ask Board to meet in person a few times a year at the organisation’s offices in Kilmarnock.

This is an excellent opportunity for someone to help make a difference to people’s lives. Please contact us at info@atrium-homes.co.uk or call 01563 528816 for an informal discussion with Shannon Watson, Chief Executive.
