Knowes Housing Association was formed in 1998 as a result of the dedicated efforts of local residents who were determined to bring change to their area and to be involved with the improvement and management of their neighbourhood. We operate in the Faifley and surrounding areas of Clydebank.

We have a committed staff team of 24 and manage over 1000 properties and provide a factoring service to around 600 others.

Knowes is a Registered Social Landlord and Registered charity. We are a high performing organisation and have strong links with our community.

Our highly skilled and committed board meet 9 times a year and we have our AGM in September. Board meetings are generally on the first Tuesday of the month, and we have Housing and Finance Sub Committees that meet separately.

Knowes recognises that strong governance is crucial to our ongoing success, and we are now looking to co-opt new members onto our board.

We would like to hear from individuals with either a local interest in the area, or have social housing or business management experience.

Regardless of your background, you will be enthusiastic about Knowes vision and committed to our values.

This role requires a time commitment and our meetings are in the evenings from 6.30 pm. In return we offer a rewarding role and training on a variety of topics relevant to the governance of a Housing Association.

This is a voluntary position and reasonable expenses will be paid in accordance with our policy.
