“New beginnings”

Cadder Housing Association is a registered social landlord based in Glasgow which owns and maintains 694 homes for affordable rent and provides factoring services to 408 private homeowners. Established in 1993 the organisation is a community anchor for the people of Cadder within Glasgow.

The Association is on a journey of significant change and has recently undertaken a substantial restructure and full organisational review to ensure it is fit for purpose. The staff team and board have invested their time and efforts into strengthening and improving services and internal operations to ensure Cadder retains its independence and its position as a key pillar of the local community.

Cadder is now looking to recruit a new Chief Executive who will lead the organisation into its new chapter and establish a strong culture of customer first and collaboration. The Chief Executive position is the lead officer of the Association and reports directly to the management committee, working to develop and implement the organisation’s strategy and business plan moving forward. The post holder will lead a highly effective staff team and develop Cadder’s people, enabling progression and skills development whilst ensuring customers remain at the forefront of all business activity. The new leader will be the ambassador for Cadder, its staff, customers and committee.

We are looking for a visionary with a track record in strategic leadership who can take on the reins during a time of significant change. The ideal candidate will have experience gained on a management committee and will be able to evidence achievement of successful outcomes and innovative solutions.

Experience of working within the housing sector is not essential for applicants.
