Scottish Housing Regulator (SHR) – Chair and Board Members

Join the Scottish Housing Regulator (SHR) to protect and promote the interest of tenants and other customers of social housing and maintain the confidence of investors in social housing.

Due to retirement, we are seeking a new Chair and up to three new Board members to complement the skills of our existing SHR Board

Chair – day rate £198 for up to 8 days/ month.

Member – day rate £165 for up to 1 day/ week or 52 days over the course of a year.

Appointments are for up to four years and are non – pensionable.

Closing date: 8 February 2017

Our one objective is to safeguard and promote the interests of:
• Nearly 610,000 tenants who live in homes provided by social landlords
• Around 118,000 owners who receive services from social landlords
• Around 40,000 people and their families who may be homeless and seek help from local authorities
• Over 2,000 Gypsy/Travellers who can use official sites provided by social landlords.

Our effective regulation helped attract and continues to protect around £8 billion in public funding and £5 billion in private investment in registered social landlords.

RSL housing assets are worth £13 billion.

The Board sets SHR’s strategic direction and ensures it focuses on key priorities to meet its statutory objective.

We are seeking a Chair and up to three Board members with strong communication and influencing skills and who can work collaboratively as part of a team. We expect you to be able to challenge constructively and to analyse and review complex issues and weigh up conflicting opinions.

In addition to these general skills for the Board member posts, we are looking for people with excellent financial skills and an understanding of business and audit and/or an understanding of regulation (although not necessarily in housing).

We are seeking a Chair who is a strategic leader, with experience of strong governance and who can meaningfully engage with our stakeholders including tenants, landlords, investor in social housing, representative bodies, Scottish Government and the Scottish Parliament. You will also have an understanding of regulation (although not necessarily in housing).
