Client Details

Our client is a regulated charitable housing association and one of the UK's most successful independent social businesses. They house around 250,000 people in more than 97,000 homes, primarily across London and the South East.

They are a long-term partner in the neighbourhoods where they work. They hope to build aspiration, opportunity and confidence in their communities through their GBP 250 million foundation and skills academy.

In response to the housing and affordability crisis, they will build 100,000 new homes over ten years, at least 50% of these new homes will be genuinely affordable, with a target of 60% in London.

As an employer they are committed to supporting your work-life balance and recognise the changing demands and circumstances in life; they are more than happy to accommodate part time or flexible working arrangements. In addition, should your circumstances change once you have joined, you can also request flexible working arrangements, e.g. a change to working hours - if it's feasible then they'll make it happen.

They are recognised externally for their commitment to inclusion. They are a Stonewall Diversity Champion, a Disability Confident (Committed) employer and have signed the Time to Change Employer Pledge to demonstrate our commitment to end mental health discrimination in the workplace.
