This is an exciting time to join our Management Committee as you will be able to help shape our new strategic plan for 2024 and beyond.
The Management Committee set our direction and associated strategies, monitor our performance and oversee risk and audit to ensure Loreburn are well-positioned to deliver GREAT outcomes for customers.
You will provide strong, focussed, governance to our organisation and bring a breadth of experience and specialist knowledge that helps shape our success.
We have two sub-committees that advise on aspects of our work; Audit and Compliance and People and Culture.
Board member position
We are seeking voluntary Board Members to help us deliver our services in Dumfries & Galloway
Specifically, we are looking for new members with experience in:
- Corporate Governance – performance management; housing regulation
- Financial planning and strategic management
These skills are sought to ensure we have a balanced group of individuals on our Board. Ideally you might also offer other experience in social housing or have a commercial background. More detail on the skills we require can be found below.
It is helpful if you have previous Non-Executive Board experience, but we can also provide support and training for the right person. Most importantly you will work collaboratively with other Board members and our Executive Team, care about our purpose, and be ambitious and enthusiastic for our future. We are looking for candidates who are interested in joining our sub-committees and as part of succession planning have an interest in office bearer positions.
The full role profile and person specification can be found in the documents section below.
Loreburn are governed by the Scottish Housing Regulator. Part of the standards of the Governance framework are around governing body members leading and directing the Registered Social Landlord to achieve good outcomes for its tenants and other service users.
A key focus is ensuring each member always acts in the best interests of the Association and its tenants and service users and does not place any personal or other interest ahead of their primary duty to the Association.
We would expect any new board members to observe our code of conduct and follow the organisations rules. These can be found in the document section below.
To become a member of our board you will also need to become a shareholding member of the Association. Details on our membership policy and the membership form can be found in the document section.
We have maintained our compliant status for the third year in a row since the introduction of the Annual Assurance Statement. We have an improvement focus and an established Assurance Action Plan which will continue to strengthen our position. We have a particular focus on governance and strengthening our management committee and we continue to have an open dialogue with the Regulator as we move forward. We look forward to welcoming new members who can join us on this journey.
