Specialist consultants and contractors are used as necessary for building and maintenance contracts and day to day repairs. We uses the specialist services of F3 Chartered Surveyors and the services of a Financial Agent (Prospect Housing Association) for financial management services and reporting. Our External Auditors are Chiene & Tait and our Internal Auditors are Wylie & Bisset. In addition, WGHC is currently developing its own Equalities Framework with Dr Stewart Montgomery and the Glasgow Centre for Inclusive Living.
WGHC currently has 9 directly employed members of staff: 7 full time and 2 part time. They are shown in the staff structure below.
The basic working week is 35 hours worked 9:00am to 4:30pm with a half hour break for lunch. There is some flexibility in hours and some out of hours working.
The chart below shows our staff structure. Each staff member has a specific role. However, as a small organisation, everyone is expected to work “generically” to some degree.
