Paragon Housing Association is a well-established housing association operating throughout the Forth Valley area and we are looking for people with the right skills, experience and commitment to join our Management Committee to help us continue to move forward in these challenging times.
We would like to hear from you if you are interested in delivering good quality housing services, supporting communities and delivering ongoing investment in the housing stock while ensuring the Association is well governed.
Committee members are responsible for providing leadership to the Association and setting out the strategic direction. We welcome any skills that people can bring. Skills and backgrounds could include community involvement, HR, finance, equalities, construction, digital skills and more. We are open to all types of skills and experience provided there is a willingness to learn and develop in the role while acting in the best interests of the Association, our tenants and other service users. The housing world is changing and new ideas are welcome. Previous board/trustee experience is not necessary and we will support your development in the role.
There are around 10 meetings per year. These are a combination of evening and afternoons/ online and face to face. We can offer internal and external training opportunities. There is a formal induction session and an online induction pack. We aim to take members on a stock tour annually and we promise that your time with us will be well spent. We are members of a number of excellent housing support bodies such as the Scottish Federation of Housing Associations, SHARE, TIS and EVH who offer conferences and training and we encourage members to attend.
Members are volunteers however out of pocket expenses are reimbursed.
We are keen that the composition of our Committee reflects the diversity of our local communities so welcome interest from all sections of the community.
