Management Board Members – Ferguslie Park Housing Association

Ferguslie Park Housing AssociationPaisley

FPHA is not typical – it provides an unusual opportunity for committee members to contribute to the turn-around of a community organisation with a great history and a great future. At present, we are recovering from weaknesses in governance and financial management which led to the intervention of the Scottish Housing Regulator.  The intervention included the appointment of 3 housing professionals to our Management Board.  We have benefited greatly from their expertise and their own organisations have benefited from the learning and renewal at FPHA. We want to prepare for their departure by recruiting people with similar skills in housing, regeneration, law or social housing finance.

They may have previous Business Experience, Specialist housing and related knowledge and it will be a bonus if they also have Local knowledge: for example, awareness of the housing and wider community needs in Ferguslie Park, awareness of concerns facing FPHA’s customers, knowledge of local issues in Renfrewshire and the needs and priorities of the people who live here, familiarity with Renfrewshire Council’s plans, priorities and practices.

Paisley 2021Most of all, they will demonstrate:

  • Commitment to supporting the community that FPHA serves
  • Willingness to work hard as a member of a team which has responsibility for leading and directing FPHA’s work.

Ready & Interested?

Project Manager – A Scottish Estate

Berwick Partners logoAttractive package

Location – Highlands

An estate in the Highlands is looking to renovate, improve and manage the Estate in a way that is in keeping with traditional and local values.

The Estate encompasses a number of properties and some significant refurbishment, redevelopment and development opportunities. Major projects include: the complete refurbishment of the main house; the conversation of a disused complex of cottages and outbuildings to accommodation, retail/leisure premises; and a 12 bed new build that is at concept stage. Beyond these specific and sizeable projects, there are multiple smaller schemes focusing on individual dwellings around the Estate. In addition, there are potentially some major, mid to longer term development opportunities on the Estate for more scalable housebuilding.

The Role

Considering the number and scale of projects on the Estate, the Directors have realised the need for an onsite Project Manager to ensure delivery of agreed schemes to budget, time and specifications.

The successful candidate would be required to do the following:

  • Take full responsibility for construction projects throughout the Estate.
  • Demonstrate awareness and sensitivity towards all areas of the Estate and broader local community.
  • Be commercial, financially astute and ‘street wise’ to ensure projects are run to cost.
  • Manage multiple projects simultaneously and all contractors and third parties involved.
  • Offer high level strategic thinking at project level; yet ‘hands on’ at a micro level, when required.

The Candidate

This ‘client side’ Project Manager role offers the right candidate something different. Whilst there is obviously the priority of identifying and delivering on predominantly residential projects; there is also the importance of engaging with the community and ensuring schemes are befitting (in both style and the way in which they are managed) the ethos and values of the Estate.

We are looking to interview those with the following:

  • Recognised qualification in construction and form of health & safety training.
  • Proven experience of leading development, redevelopment and refurbishment of high specification, ‘turnkey’, residential projects.
  • A genuine appreciation for sympathetic ‘place making’ and the context of the broader community.
  • A high level of diplomacy, tact and emotional intelligence.
  • Track record of developing strong and effective relationships with consultants and contractors.

Closing date for applications: Friday 24th November.
