We Want You on Board

Could you offer skills, knowledge, creativity and inspiration at board level to help drive one of our successful companies on to even greater heights?

We have non-executive director positions available across all of the Hillcrest companies, so no matter what your background or expertise, you can help play a key role.

In particular, we have identified gaps in the composition of the Boards. We are striving to be more inclusive and representative in our decisions and we are actively seeking board members from marginalised and minority backgrounds.  We believe having a range of perspectives and lived experiences on the board helps make sure decisions are fair, and that we continue to be innovative and agile.

Board positions are available in:

Hillcrest Homes.

Taking up a non-executive director position on our Governing Body will see you become a leading person in deciding strategies, policies and direction. As well as being our parent company, social rent is what Hillcrest Homes does and we do it well. We’re one of Scotland’s leading social landlords, and with an ambitious development programme set to deliver over 1400 new homes within the next couple of years, a position on our Homes board is sure to be filled with variety, excitement and success.

Hillcrest Futures. Based across Angus, Dundee, Fife, Perth and Kinross, Edinburgh and Glasgow, Futures works with and improves the quality of life of people with challenges, including those with learning disabilities, alcohol and substance dependencies and those with complex care needs. If you want a non-executive director position leading a company that seeks to make people’s lives better, then a position on our Futures board is for you.

Hillcrest Enterprises. Hillcrest’s vehicle for commercial projects, Mid market rent forms the core of Enterprises’ offering. Mid market is aimed at people on a modest but stable income who would find difficulty accessing social housing, but may not be in a position to buy a home. With further goals such as moving into the private rent market firmly in Enterprises’ sights, now is the perfect time to get on board and help steer the company to further success.

Hillcrest Maintenance. Offering a full range of maintenance services from joinery and plumbing to gas engineers and cleaners, this company is the backbone in keeping our tenants’ properties and services in great working order. With a vast array of expertise and trades under this company, we need inspiring and innovative board members to help us harness this further and lead us to new heights.
