Established in1983, Lochalsh and Skye Housing Association now holds stock of around 750 and growing. Our geography is challenging and over time we have therefore considerably extended the range of housing solutions we offer. We enjoy an excellent reputation and strong record of development, innovation and wider regeneration in the local communities we serve with much of this activity taking us way beyond housing.

We remain fully committed to working in partnership with individuals, groups and other organisations to maximise the benefits we deliver to local people, and the further, ongoing improvement of the communities in which they live.

Our long serving Chief Executive will shortly retire and so we wish to offer the right person a unique opportunity to help us continue the Association’s work into our 40th year and beyond.

You will be joining an ambitious and well governed organisation with an existing high performing Management Team. We remain an active developer with a currently busy programme stretching ahead.
The successful candidate will share our desire to remain an independent locally controlled Association which builds, manages and maintains stock to the highest possible standards both within the main towns and all our areas beyond. You will demonstrate a solid understanding of the social housing sector within the Highlands, and will exhibit significant managerial work experience including leading, inspiring, developing and managing staff effectively. We are a community centred organisation which believes in strong partnership working, with statutory authorities and others. We are also committed to delivering excellent services in a fully transparent fashion underpinned by demonstrable integrity in all that we do. We need our next Chief Executive to fully support these values.

We offer full EVH terms and conditions of employment, including a Career Average pension scheme.
