Interested in Becoming a Management Committee Member?

Govan Housing Association is a leading provider of high-quality housing and housing-related services in the Govan area of Glasgow. Govan Housing Association has a rich history of development and innovation. Founded in 1971 under the name ‘Central Govan Housing Association’, the Association was the first community-based housing provider, leading the way for social housing provision in Scotland. We currently have ownership and management of over 1,600 properties in the local area and have delivered a number of award-winning new build developments to assist with the continual development and regeneration of this proud and historic area.
In May 2017, we launched our Govan Home Team subsidiary and our group structure. The Govan Home Team is registered as a Community Interest Company, meaning that profits go directly into the communities that we serve.
Govan Housing Association is led by an experienced Management Committee that has overall responsibility for its governance and strategic direction. As a Management Committee member you will work closely with the Executive Management Team on strategic planning, monitoring and control of high quality, efficient services for our tenants and stakeholders.
To build on our current strengths, we are recruiting new members to our Management Committee who have a particular interest in the Govan area of Glasgow and the social housing sector as a whole.

We are particularly keen to hear from individuals with knowledge and skills in the following areas:
- All aspects of housing development

We are committed to equality and diversity and welcome approaches from all sections of the community.
