About Loreburn Housing Association
As our new Director of Finance, you will be joining a GREAT team in a values-led, community-based Housing Association. With just over 2,700 homes across Dumfries & Galloway our vision and mission is to create great places to live. Whilst our social purpose is at the core of all we do, we balance this responsibly with a commercial outlook to ensure our priorities are sustainable.
In addition to homes for rent, we offer a range of shared ownership, Later Living homes for those over 55 and homes with specialist care and support. We also own Dumfries and Galloway Homes, a private sector subsidiary offering a mix of residential rental properties and student accommodation. Reactive repairs and maintenance services are also delivered through our own ’in house’ team of skilled Operatives.
We have proudly adopted a modern hybrid working policy – Hub, Home and Roam. This offers fantastic flexibility, allowing our people to work from home, touch down in any of our identified hub spaces, and importantly, to be close and visible to residents in the local communities we serve.
