Inspiring people

We can’t be a great landlord and deliver great customer service without our 1,900 talented, committed employees. Our people strategy aims to create a culture where inspiring people live our values and perform at the best they can and realise their potential.

We have a great apprentice programme, an innovative scheme to attract adult learners and we’re leading the way with women in trades. 

And it’s great that our trade workforce is already 3% female - well over the national average of 1%. But we’re not stopping there - over the next three years we want women to make up 4% of our adult trainees, and 6% of our apprentices. That means at least 6% of our tradespeople will be female by 2022.

Our employees say we’re the kind of employer people want to work for so we’re extremely proud to hold ‘Investors in People’ gold standard, placing us in the top 7% of employers in the United Kingdom. We achieved this because we help our people develop not only in their roles, but also with their career ambitions.

Our goal is to be an employer of choice and to help us become one we provide support, development and opportunity for all, together with a competitive and flexible rewards package. But, above all we like to enjoy our work, have some fun and celebrate success.
