Thank you for your interest in the role of Director of Housing and Property Services for Rural Stirling Housing Association. This is a new role created following a review of our structure carried out last year. The review was undertaken to strengthen our resources and to make sure that we area a fit for purpose organisation with a strong staff team. This role is a key senior role and will be instrumental in making sure we can realise our plans.
We are small and rural, but we are also forward thinking and ambitious. This is an exciting time to be joining our organisation. Lots of things have come together to make this a personally rewarding and challenging opportunity.
We have put in place a new Strategic Plan for the Rural Stirling Group and have a significant programme of investment in our existing stock and ambitious plans for growth through new build. We have a very strong identity with the communities that we serve and strong relationships with a large number of diverse partners including Stirling Council and the National Park. We are determined to play our part in achieving the Scottish Government’s housing targets and are delighted with the additional support being provided to assist in making rural schemes viable.
We are looking for a Director who shares our vision and values and will bring drive and focus to the role with passion and enthusiasm. You will bring strong modern leadership skills, programme and project management skills and excellent technical ability. You will also be able to demonstrate effective communication skills and be able to engage purposefully with our key stakeholders so crucial in a rural area. Value for money will be at the heart of your role while developing and enhancing services to our tenants and the wider communities we serve. Our people are very important to us and you will help us to set the tone for the way Rural Stirling operates by embodying our values and role modelling the behaviours we expect from all who work for and with us.
I do hope that we have captured your interest and you decide to apply for the post of Director of Housing and Property Services and grasp the opportunity of working in a vibrant rural area.
Thank you again for your interest and good luck!
