Board Member - Horizon Housing Association

Do you fancy helping people who are Invisible to be seen and heard - if so, read on!

Our existing Board of Management are not known for being shy and retiring, consequently we are looking for people who can think out the box, challenge orthodox thinking and have a questioning mind with a good sense of humour!

At Horizon we are committed and passionate about people being able to live full and independent lives in a home and inclusive environment that meets their needs. As a result, we provide accessible, affordable houses and services owning and managing 860 properties across 12 Scottish local authorities.

A partner in Link Group, our voluntary Board always works in the best interests of our tenants and everyone who uses our services, championing the need for accessible services and independent living to support people who have a range of different needs. Quite simply – we need many more homes suitably designed for ALL needs and we want those who are equally passionate to join us.

You’ll have a chance to learn new skills and interact with people from different experiences, attend conferences and events and get support with equipment and technology if you need it. Board positions are voluntary, but we pay out of pocket expenses and childcare costs fully and quickly.

Committed to diversity we would really welcome people from all ages and backgrounds, particularly disabled people, younger people and people from the black and minority ethnic community. If you also have skills in finance, legal, business, health and social care, and media and marketing, so much the better, you would be very welcome. Does this all sound like your thing? If so, please email to request an application pack.

Should you have any questions regarding the role, Lorna Cameron, Chief Executive, will be delighted to speak to you. An appointment for a virtual meeting or phone call with Lorna can also be arranged by emailing

Closing Date: 21 August 2020 (applications received after this date may still be considered dependant on availability of positions on the Board)
