Ayrshire Housing has a directly employed staff of 31 relaxed but hard working and committed individuals. We are based in a bright, modern office close to the centre of Ayr, which is fully wheelchair accessible.

Ayrshire Housing is committed to equal opportunities and to the professional development of all its workers. Most years we go on a field trip. These have taken us, for example, to the islands of Arran and Bute, and to Glasgow to see the work of other housing associations. We have also visited the Scottish Parliament as the guest of  an Ayrshire MSP. Alternatively, we go on a stock tour around Ayrshire combined with a visit to a place of interest, most recently Culzean Castle. These events are an opportunity for all our staff to meet our volunteer Board members. Every two years, we jointly hold a public housing conference to bring together housing association volunteers and staff from across Ayrshire.

We are focused on making Ayrshire Housing a stimulating and pleasant place to work. We are  committed to keeping our gold Healthy Working Lives award.

Building on our experience of successful home working during the Covid pandemic, we have introduced agile working for all our team. Everyone has the ICT resources to work seamlessly whether it’s at home, in the field or the conventional office.

Ayrshire Housing offers excellent terms of employment. It is a party to the national collective bargaining agreement between  Employers in Voluntary Housing (EVH) and Unite the Union. We also offer generous defined benefits pensions through both the Scottish Housing Associations Pension Scheme and the Strathclyde Pension Fund.

We always advertise vacancies publicly. If you want to be kept informed of up and coming jobs with us and other housing associations, register with the e-mail alert service at EVH.

You can also see all our vacancies in  our news feed and social media for all vacancies.
