It is an exciting time to join One Housing Group, particularly as a Head of Corporate Communications. Over the last year we’ve been working with our residents, employees, and stakeholders to renew our vision and values.
We have just launched our new five year plan which shows that we are committed to improving our services to residents and investing in our communities, as well as building high-quality affordable homes in the areas where we have a long-standing presence.
We have embarked upon a modernisation programme that focuses on customer services and ensuring we run efficiently and create a fun, flexible and modern place to work.
We are committed to greater openness and transparency, and to some tough diversity targets so that our Board and senior teams become more representative of the communities that we serve.
It’s exciting times and we are looking for an enthusiastic communications expert to lead our small central communications team. You don’t need to have a background in housing, but you do need to share our values and believe in our social purpose.

We are looking for someone who understands brand guardianship and communication strategies and is also happy to roll their sleeves up and get stuck in.
We have a small communications team, so strong team work is important. Our internal communications and employee engagement sits outside of this team.
What we offer to you
A competitive salary, a supportive culture, a growing benefits package and interest in your personal development and aspirations. We also recognise that people juggle various commitments alongside work and we want to support a healthy work-life balance – we are very happy to consider flexible working arrangements therefore as our focus is on finding the right person to join us.

We work hard to make a positive difference to our residents’ lives by promoting aspiration, independence and well-being through a range of training and support services.
We are delighted to join g15 and play our full part in helping to address the housing crisis in London.
