Cordale Housing Association – Opportunities to join our management committee
“Homes and Services that make life better”
Cordale Housing Association is a registered charity operating in Renton and Alexandria, West Dunbartonshire.
The Association is part of the Caledonia Housing Association Group.
Over the past few years, the Association has undergone significant change and progress. Through collaborative partnership working and an innovative shared services model, Cordale Housing Association has improved performance, services and results offered to tenants and services users.
The recent improvement in services at Cordale Housing Association has been recognised with the Association winning the award of Small Housing Association of the year at the Scottish Homes awards in June, 2017 and the award of West Dunbartonshire’s best performing business in May, 2017.
Undoubtedly, it is exciting times at Cordale Housing Association. The Association is committed to further change and improvement, progressing in 2018 ambitious growth plans and developing a strategy to transform customer services by increasing choice and providing flexible services, improving value for money and enhancing customer satisfaction.
In the past eighteen months, Cordale Housing Association’s partnership with Caledonia Housing Association has provided 80 new affordable homes in Renton and Alexandria. The partnership will deliver a significant number of new affordable homes in West Dunbartonshire over the next couple of years. Meanwhile the Association is about to start building in early 2018 a new office that will renew and revitalise the heart of Renton.
Cordale Housing Association is governed by a Management Committee comprising of a mix of local residents and individuals with specific business skills. The role of the Committee is to ensure the Association is managed well and delivers excellent outcomes for tenants and service users. This involves setting direction, monitoring performance, managing risk and complying with statutory and regulatory requirements.
The Association is presently looking to recruit new co-opted Management Committee members. Cordale Housing Association is particularly interested in speaking to individuals with specific experience and knowledge of asset management, development or construction. Meanwhile the Association is also keen to hear from individuals with strong governance experience and a background in strategy development and/or organisational change.
These are exciting and rewarding opportunities for individuals with the appropriate knowledge, skills and enthusiasm to make a difference. The posts provide the opportunity to gain governance and leadership experience as part of a dynamic and forward-thinking Housing Association Group, whilst supporting a community based charitable Housing Association committed to providing “homes and services that make life better”.
