Join our Board of Management

Lochaber Housing Association are seeking Voluntary Board Members to assist in the running of the Association which provides affordable housing and related services throughout Lochaber. The Association also operates and provides services through two subsidiary companies, Lochaber Care & Repair Ltd and LHA Property Services CIC.

We are looking for enthusiasts with a diverse range of backgrounds and the necessary skills and experience in areas such as finance, customer care, asset management, performance management, human resources, risk management or community regeneration. There is no requirement to have any previous Board experience, above all, we want open, fair-minded individuals who want to help others and value participation over reward.

As a Board Member you will be responsible with others for providing the strategic leadership and direction of the Association, and be involved with the planning, governance, monitoring, and control of the delivery of services to our tenants and service users. The Board works closely with the senior management team to achieve these aims. 

Attendance is required at approximately 8 evening meetings throughout the year, the majority of which are online. These are voluntary roles, but we can offer out of pocket expenses, including travelling costs, to facilitate attendance at meetings. You are not required to live in the Lochaber area but you should be able to demonstrate your support for the objectives of the Association.

We are an equal opportunities organisation and positively encourage applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of sex, race, disability, sexual orientation, age, religion or belief.
