Voluntary Board members wanted
Do you have time to give as a Volunteer Board member to help Glen Oaks Housing Association develop its work?
Glen Oaks is a dynamic community-controlled housing association operating in South West Glasgow, managing c.1440 homes and having an annual turnover of £6.2m. We are a Scottish Charity and we are registered with the Scottish Housing Regulator. The Association is led by an experienced Board that has overall responsibility for our strategic direction. We have an ongoing housing development and refurbishment programme and are committed to providing an excellent service to our customers.
We are now recruiting for additional Board members. Our Board meets approximately 8 times per annum in the early evening. We also expect Board members to attend an annual strategy session which is held on a Saturday. We have 2 Sub-Committees which meet 4 times per annum in the early evening and we encourage Board members to join 1 Sub-Committee. Previous experience of housing associations is not essential as training will be provided. As well as contributing to the ongoing development of the Association, our voluntary Board members can also gain personal development opportunities through their work with us. Ideally, candidates will be Glen Oaks tenants or have experience in one or more of the following areas: Finance, issues affecting the Social Housing Sector, IT, Human Resources. Our Board wishes to increase its representation of people from BME communities and younger people. We therefore strongly encourage applications from all sections of the community, and particularly from these groups.
As a voluntary Board member you will not be paid, however travel expenses for attendance at meetings can be claimed.
