Govan Housing Association are an ambitious and community-centred social housing provider serving the historic Govan area for over fifty years. A riverside district known for its traditional pubs and red sandstone Victorian buildings, Govan blends the old with the new, from the conversion of old tenement buildings into modern living spaces to old shipyards being renovated into cultural and entertainment centres. The housing association provides more than 1,600 homes to the local area, as well as providing a range of other services and community initiatives.

We are delighted to be working in partnership with Govan HA to appoint a new senior officer. This position will hold the title of Group CEO, reflecting the growing complexity and ambition of the organisation.

Candidates will ensure that Govan HA continues to be an employer of choice, building on its success of being the first housing association to be awarded the top three accolades as Investors in People. They will nurture the aspirations of both the staff and the business, ensuring that maximum potential is reached throughout.

Experience of a social housing provider is highly desirable, where this is not possessed significant evidence of transferability must be provided.
