Housing Associations

Housing associations in England are independent societies, bodies of trustees or companies established for the purpose of providing low-cost social housing for people in housing need on a non-profit-making basis. 

Affordable housing companies often develop and put out to tender social housing projects and work closely with privately-owned developers on joint ventures. Due to planning laws, there are Affordable Housing requirements for certain locations and proposed developments. 

These companies often require the same set of resource and skills as a speculative developer, as they are effectively doing the same thing – building houses/homes. This means there is another crossover of professionals available to us and our clients. 

Certain housing associations even have speculative development arms that build homes for the private market and as such have similar jobs. This is usually done to provide funds for their social housing plans, as they are not-for-profit – these arms act very closely to developers/housebuilders. 

We have extensive experience working with affordable housing developers and understand the extra levels of administration that these organisations are tasked with. It takes a certain type of person to work for a HA, due to the ethical nature of the business and the layers of red tape. 

Examples of roles we have successfully headhunted on include:- 

  • Land Director 
  • Planning Director 
  • Senior Development Manager 
  • Project Manager 
  • Associate 
  • Business Development Manager

“I have had the pleasure of working with Dan for the past 3 years. Dan supported and placed me into my first interim role at Ricoh. During my 13 month placement Dan continued to keep contact with me and the client to ensure there were no issues. He has a very personable nature and really understands the importance of building relationships with not just the client but also his candidates. Although my placement finished nearly two years ago we are still in regular contact. He is one of the best recruiters I have had the pleasure to work with and I would have no hesitation in recommending him.”
