Board Member

Link Group Ltd is the parent company of a group of award-winning social enterprises (“Link”) providing housing and support services to over 15,000 people. Comprising 5 Registered Social Landlords, a commercial maintenance and development company, as well as a specialist support organisation, the group forms Scotland’s second largest housing association.

The Link Group Ltd Board plays a crucial role in the organisation. Providing oversight, scrutiny and support, our Board members ensure that we maintain the highest standards of governance and performance.

Our customers come from an incredible diversity of backgrounds and it is important to us that we bring this diversity right up through the organisation to the Board level. We are currently looking to add to the range of skills and experience on the Link Group Board ranging from housing all the way through to legal, social enterprise and social care. We welcome interest from all sectors of our communities with a particular aim to expand our representation of younger people, women, people with disabilities and people from diverse ethnic backgrounds.

We want to work with people who share our commitment to help others and support the development of our communities. You don’t need to be a housing specialist, but you do need a personal passion for improving the lives of families across the country.

As a Link Group board member, you will gain a valuable insight into the range of services we provide to underpin high levels of customer satisfaction, while also delivering opportunities for reinvestment in Link’s social and sustainable aims.

This is not a role for the faint-hearted - it is certainly a challenge, but also incredibly rewarding. We work in a highly regulated sector dealing with issues which fundamentally impact on people’s lives. What we do matters, and as a board member you will have the opportunity to lead and drive changes which can shape communities across Scotland for the better.

We hold 6 Board meetings a year as well as separate Strategy Day sessions. These are late afternoon / early evenings, typically on the last Tuesday of the month. Around half of these meetings are held online and the other half are face to face in one of our offices, in Edinburgh and across the central belt.

Closing date is 30 April 2024.
