About us

Brighter Places is an ambitious new housing association for Bristol and surrounding areas. We will play an important role in driving forward the agenda for affordable housing and stronger communities in the city and beyond.

We manage 3,300 homes and serve more than 8,100 residents, and we have ambitious plans for our future.

This is a new chapter in our proud history as a bigger and better housing association delivering excellent customer service, resident-led decision-making and developing and improving homes.

What we do

As the name suggests, our purpose is to bring together the best of the two associations and put residents at the heart of our services. 

Over the first six months, we will be setting out our corporate vision and plans, but we have three clear priorities from day 1:

  • Service Excellence: Providing a service that meets the needs of our residents, ensures our homes are safe and comfortable which residents are proud to live in and provide a collaborative approach where residents, communities and colleagues work together to design our services.
  • Being a Destination Employer: No organisation can achieve its vision and ambitions without the passion, creativity and energy of its colleagues. In order to be their best, colleagues need to be supported and inspired, and we have a clear commitment to create the right environment for our colleagues to succeed. We believe this will be delivered through the creation of a culture of openness, empowerment and accountability. We will invest in our colleagues' development and wellbeing, and in providing the best tools to enable everyone to deliver great services.
  • Growth: We are excited and ambitious for our future, and our ability to continue to grow as a business. We have the ambition to complete the delivery of 1,000 new homes by 2025 and are committed to ensure our new and existing homes are energy efficient and carbon neutral. As a community-based business, we will also thrive to work closely with our communities to develop the homes they need for the future.

Working for us

Alongside working in a friendly and supportive work environment, we offer competitive salaries and  an attractive benefits package, including 28 days holidays at your start date, agile working arrangements (including home working), gym membership or health cash plan, and a competitive pension scheme.
