Work with us

We’re a team that wants to make a difference in the lives of those most in need of community housing. Maybe you do, too.

Our team covers everything from tenancy management, tenant well-being and customer service to maintenance, project planning and finance.

The work we do is as diverse as the skills we bring to it. Our team has people with backgrounds in community work, project management, building, business, administration, central and local government, law, accounting, health and safety, logistics, property management and even journalism… the list is as long as the opportunities.

If you’d like to add your skills to that list, please keep an eye out for our vacancies. We’d love to hear from you.
