Voluntary Board Members – Copperworks Housing Association
Would you like to make a difference to people and communities?
Would you like to use your skill set and experience as a voluntary Committee Member?
Do you have a couple of hours each month to help shape the future of Copperworks Housing Association?
Copperworks Housing Association is a leading provider of high quality housing, a Registered Charity and a Registered Social Landlord with the Scottish Housing Regulator. We own and manage 270 homes in Royston, Glasgow. Our mission is to provide locally based high quality, affordable housing and services which will contribute to the well- being of the community we serve. We take great pride in the standard of service we deliver.
This is an exciting time to be part of the Copperworks team as we explore the implementation of a Roystonhill Masterplan which could see us building new homes for the first time in 19 years!
In addition, we recently acquired a large area of derelict land and carried out significant remediation works. We will, in the coming months, be moving on to the next phase where we hope to develop this area into a fabulous open space / community park, to be enjoyed by the entire community and beyond.
Copperworks is led by an experienced Management Committee that has overall responsibility for the governance and strategic direction of the Association. As a Committee member you will be involved with the planning, monitoring and control of high quality, efficient services to our tenants and service users.
The Management Committee works closely with our senior management team to achieve these aims.
As part of our succession planning, we are recruiting new members who have an interest, skills and commitment to help the Association achieve its aims and objectives.
Above all, we need people with the passion and commitment to make a real difference to those in housing need.
We are committed to equality and diversity and welcome people from all sections of the community.
What can we offer?
This is a voluntary position however we can offer Committee members full training and Management Committee experience. You will be encouraged to undertake training sessions and attend seminars and conferences on behalf of the Association.
You would be expected to attend at least 10 Management Committee meetings each year.
