Position of Board Member – Muirhouse Housing Association

Muirhouse

Position of Board Member

Muirhouse Housing Association (MHA) is a community based association providing 570 homes to people in Muirhouse. With strong roots in the local community MHA aims to provide a quality housing service. The Association primarily provides affordable housing for rent, however in 2014 a subsidiary company was established to provide Mid Market properties.

The last few years have been busy for MHA as we went into high engagement with the Scottish Housing Regulator in December 2014. Since then we have worked on significant improvements to our governance and risk management. The hard work was acknowledged by the Scottish Housing Regulator earlier this year when they decided to put MHA back in low engagement. We are now looking forward and want to be a significant force in driving positive change and improved life opportunities for those who live in our community.

We are looking for new volunteer Board Members to strengthen our Board of Management and compliment current Board Members’ skills and experience. Knowledge of the housing sector and the Muirhouse area is an advantage, but not a requirement as we provide induction for all new Board Members.

This voluntary position is a real opportunity for someone who wants to play a leading role in taking MHA forward as a community housing association and help leading us to provide excellent services and stronger communities.

The Board currently meets 9 times a year including an AGM. Meetings normally take place on a Monday night. Informal enquiries are welcomed to Stevie McAvoy on 0131 336 5282.
