Job Details

TCHA a community-centric 600 home housing association that works across more than a dozen local authority areas in London.  Originally set up to cater for the needs of Tamil refugees who relocated to London, we now house a diverse and vibrant tenant group and strive to provide high quality affordable homes and services.  As we approach our forty-year anniversary we are looking for a leader to take us into our next decade and more.  We are immensely proud of the contribution we make to the social housing sector and if you share our enthusiasm for doing great things please keep reading.

We have grown significantly during the last twelve months, this being the consequence of our accepting a transfer of engagements from another registered provider in August 2023.  With most of the business integration work now complete we offer a fantastic opportunity for someone to come in and help us finish that work and take us into the next phase of the development of the business.

You will be a successful, versatile manager already working in the sector or in a related profession and are thinking about making the step up to your first executive role.  You must have sufficient technical understanding of the social housing sector to hit the ground running on appointment but your personal qualities, values and capacity to learn are of equal if not more importance to us.  To be successful in the job you will have a genuine desire to make a different to the lives of our customers.  



TCHA is the largest social business within the Tamil community.

The merger with Apna Ghar brings TCHA’s asset base to £45m and the number of homes we own and manage to more than 625. We are continuing to take up development opportunities.

We work in partnership with community groups to pioneer and develop community-led solutions to meet people’s needs.


Values matter to us:

  • Our work is rooted in the community
  • We work together and value each other
  • We treat our residents, partners and stakeholders with respect and dignity


Our approach:

  • Always put tenants and the community first
  • Demonstrate a can do approach
  • Run a financially strong and sound business
  • Achieve an optimum return from all our investments
  • Practice equality of opportunity in all areas of TCHA’s business
  • Deliver excellence in services in all areas of our business
  • Promote environmentally friendly practices and services
