Are you interested in becoming a Board member of Grampian Housing Association?

Board Thumbnail2We now wish to further enhance the strength and diversity of our Board and are seeking enthusiastic, community-minded people from all walks of life.  While you don’t need to have previous board-level experience, we do require people who can support our team in delivering our ambitious business plan.  In particular, we would like to hear from people who have, or have held, positions in finance, social housing or in a charitable or third sector organisation.
