Responsible for stakeholder relations
We are affordable housing, part of the Places for People group; we are creators of places; our work impacts the lives of people across the UK – providing homes to live in, communities to retreat to, spaces to stay active, assisted living homes for independent living and student accommodation. Our places work when they work for everyone.
How do we do all this? By surrounding ourselves with targeted people, by engaging people and salespeople. Our employees live and breathe our SPIRIT values; we are the place for spirited people.
So, we want you to join us and the 12,000 other colleagues on our journey; colleagues who have helped us create places, maintain 209,000 homes, manage £ 4.5bn in assets, deliver £ 87.9m in social value and teach 80,000 children to swim every week.
