Social Housing refers to the selection of homes that are owned and run by housing associations, councils, or other organisations such as charities and co-operatives. There are a variety of job opportunities available within the social housing sector that are all working toward the common goal of providing safe, warm, and affordable accommodation to lower income groups. Impacting communities in this way makes the industry an extremely rewarding mission to be a part of and is a crucial sector for those wanting to make a difference in their job.
There are around 5 million subsidised homes in the UK; this housing accommodates around 10% of the population so there is always a steady demand for jobs to be filled in this sector. Skills that are desirable to work in a social housing job include being able to communicate with a broad selection of people, be able to work to deadlines and obtain effective organization skills.
