The Ferguslie Group consists of 800-home Ferguslie Park Housing Association and The New Tannahill Centre, which is the community hub. As social enterprises, they work closely together to continue the regeneration of Ferguslie Park and work very effectively with partners to channel ideas and investment into actions.
This is a unique opportunity to work in an area of Scotland which has seen repeated regeneration efforts but is still stigmatised. This is an opportunity for a candidate who is passionate about and fully committed to the ethos of social housing and community empowerment to make a lasting mark as an outstanding leader and truly make a positive difference to the lives of our tenants and the residents of Ferguslie Park. Some of our residents live in the most deprived data zone in the country as measured by the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation. Impressively and encouragingly, Ferguslie Park has a very strong community spirit and many active local people who are determined to keep making it better. Additionally, the contributions from its housing association and community centre are central to achieving lasting and exciting regeneration.
Following a period of underachievement and a back to basics review, the group organisations are steaming ahead; regaining their leading positions and high performance levels. The Chief Executive will lead the conclusion of the turnaround and, with eager board and staff members, invigorate a new phase of regeneration aimed at getting Ferguslie out of the deprivation doldrums for good. This is a challenging, rewarding and satisfying job for an exceptional leader with a track record of success.
How much would you like to be successful as our new leader and play your part in our highly motivated community team?
