Our vision is for everyone to have the chance to build their lives from a base of a good home. Our mission is to provide good quality affordable homes and invest in communities. We love to build.  Not just housing and communities, but skills and careers too.

About the role

Our Residents and Communities team aim to improve the life chances of residents and make a positive difference in our communities.

You will also research and pilot new ways of engaging our residents in innovative pathways to employment and enterprise.

You must have experience of working with unemployed people and be empathetic to their needs.  Networking and making partnerships must be easy.
