Asset Manager

£41,884 – £45,315

Hybrid working – Glasgow, Barrhead

Barrhead Housing Association is a locally-based provider of high quality, affordable, rented housing.  Set up as a registered social landlord in 1986, the Association’s initial aim was to improve the tenemental properties in the centre of Barrhead and we soon thereafter started a programme of building new properties for rent. Now the majority of our homes are newbuild.  In 2001, we successfully transferred 245 homes from Scottish Homes and quickly completed the key improvements required, which included the demolition of properties in Auchenback – these have been replaced with new terraced houses and flats. In 2004 we became a registered Scottish charity. We are now a key locally controlled housing association owning 947 properties through East Renfrewshire, although mainly in Barrhead, Neilston, Newton Mearns and Thornliebank.  This includes 12 new affordable homes provided in partnership with Taylor Wimpey in August 2020 and 10 with Bellway in 2021.  We have plans to work in partnership to provide a further 45 properties over the next 18 months across Barrhead.

BHA provide homes for around 2,500 people with more than 750 seeking a home from us, and hundreds involved in our community activities annually.

Barrhead HA are seeking to recruit a suitably experienced person to join the staff team in the role of Asset Manager. This is the final management position being filled as part of the recently approved organisational re-design proposals. This position holds responsibility for the planning, procurement and delivery of the Association’s major investment and cyclical maintenance programmes to provide value for money and ensure that the Association complies with all regulatory and statutory requirements.
