Role

We are currently recruiting new board members to join our Board of Management.

Cassiltoun Housing Association based in the South East of Glasgow is a community-based organisation that puts our tenants and wider community at the forefront of our activities. Here at Cassiltoun, we are committed to regenerating our community not only through first class housing and environmental services but by our wider regeneration work which includes activities such as welfare advice, employability and training, Castlemilk Park, children’s projects and community health projects. We also work closely with our subsidiary companies (Cassiltoun Trust and Cassiltoun Stables Nursery) and in partnership with other organisations and agencies.

Being part of our Board is an excellent opportunity to be involved in making a real difference to our customers and community and to be engaged in the strategic direction of our organisation.

This is an exciting time for us as we implement our Business Plan and Digital Transformation Strategy which puts customers at the heart of service delivery.

There is no requirement to have had any previous Board experience. What is important is that you have the drive and passion to make a difference and that you are prepared to contribute to discussions that enable positive and collective decision-making.

To ensure that our board is made up of people reflecting the diversity of our local community and to strengthen our existing Board of Management’s knowledge and skills, do you have experience in any of the following professions. If so, we would love to hear from you.

  • Corporate Governance
  • Human Resources
  • Finance
  • Health & Safety
  • Community Development
  • Digital Transformation/Customer Service
  • Asset Management
  • Housing Management

Our Board meets 10 times a year (January – November with a recess in July) on the last Wednesday of each month. Our meetings last no longer than 2 hours. We take a hybrid approach to meetings, with options for meeting online or in person. Board membership is a voluntary position but you will be reimbursed for out-of-pocket expenses.

Successful applicants will receive effective induction, be supported, learn new skills and knowledge.
