Work with us
We’re so excited that you’re interested in working at PA Housing.
We work hard to create a friendly and supportive working environment to ensure that we attract and retain talent at all levels. We are an inclusive employer that sees opportunities rather than barriers when it comes to employing new colleagues with a varied skill set, talent base and background. We actively look to attract, interview and hire with diversity in mind.
In line with the current advice relating to COVID 19 and the need to reduce unessential contact with others we will be making some changes to our recruitment processes that we wanted to make you aware of as follows:
Changes to the recruitment process:
Our recruitment processes may take a little longer due to a variety of priorities and Hiring Managers availability. We will do our best to keep all candidates updated - please check your networx account for updates if a vacancy has closed and you are awaiting an outcome.
If your application is shortlisted and you are invited to interview we will be utilising IT solutions to conduct interviews. This could mean that your interview will take place via phone, Skype or video. We will work with each candidate to determine the best solution.
As many of our teams will be working from home, normal routines will need to change and cover in our offices will be limited. Therefore, if you are successful in securing a role with PA Housing we may need to delay your start date. Again, we will work with each candidate to determine the best solution.
Our excellent customer service is founded on our exceptional workforce. We have high expectations but we also want to offer the best to our colleagues. We value our staff greatly and invest heavily in staff development to unleash existing skills and acquire new ones as they progress. The PA Way ethos ensures that colleagues’ ideas and opinions are gathered, considered and implemented where they meet our values of 'Always doing the right thing', 'There when you need us' and 'We never give up'.
We hope we have the right role for you. Why not check our current vacancies to find out.
PA Housing isn’t just about property; it's about people and community. Whatever part you play in our diverse workforce, you will know that you are helping make our customers' lives better, whether that is improving their wellbeing, making their neighbourhood safe and attractive, or offering advice and support. You'll be working with other people who care and are determined to make a change, and you'll go home sure that you've made a difference.
We have more than 600 employees in a huge range of roles. Our key locations are Leicester, London and Walton-on-Thames, but we have several smaller satellite offices and schemes across the Midlands, London, Home Counties and the South East.
Our recruitment process
We provide a high standard of service so we need the right candidates who will be as committed to our customers’ welfare as we are.
Our decision to employ someone is based entirely on an assessment of qualifications, experience, skills and attitude. You will never be judged on race, colour, nationality, national origin, ethnic origin, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, perceived gender or any other factor that cannot be justified in the requirements for a post.
Anyone with a disability will be welcomed providing you meet the minimum criteria outlined in the job description and person specification. If you can’t complete the online application form, let us know and we’ll find an alternative method. We are here to help.
All information about Equal Opportunities and Diversity will be detached from your application before the interview. The Interviewing Panel will not be given this information, and it will not be taken into consideration for recruitment decisions.
You can find out more in our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion policy
Everybody is unique, and we're committed to promoting diversity, inclusion, and a culture that actively values difference. We know that diversity and inclusion are fundamental to the effective delivery of our services and we are working to embed diversity and inclusion across all our business functions by focusing on understanding and addressing the needs of all our customers and staff.
What makes you unique?
We use a fully inclusive platform called Vercida to showcase PA Housing as an employer of choice and to advertise our vacancies. They are able to offer candidates support and advice with applications, CVs and interview support were required.
