not just a desk job

What is housing work

A career in housing can take many forms, from giving advice to homeless people to assessing repairs or even running an organisation that employs hundreds of people.

There are literally hundreds of different roles in a wide range of organisations including local authorities, housing associations & co-operatives and the private sector.

Whether you're involved in customer/tenant services, development, estate management, homelessness, housing management, maintenance, marketing, administration or any of the other types of jobs available, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that your contribution really matters because everyone needs somewhere decent to live.

It is a secure job and I like the idea of helping people.
