About SW9 Community Housing
It’s an exciting time to join SW9 Community Housing. As a resident-led Housing Management Organisation, we are seeking to recruit a Communications Executive to take a lead role in evolving the way we communicate with our customers, people and stakeholders.
We are based in one of London’s most vibrant and diverse boroughs in which to live and work. With 1,500 properties currently and 239 new homes to be added to our portfolio during 2019/2020, a turnover of £7.7m, as well as a substantial regeneration and development programme, we aim to build a bright future for our residents. They are the reason we do what we do, and we want like-minded visionaries to join us on this journey.
Who we are:
- A group of people who demonstrate integrity, respect, and teamwork;
- A group of people with passion, drive, and the courage to be different;
- A group of people committed to doing the right thing.
Our values define who we are. They are the fundamental beliefs of our social purpose. They guide our actions and behaviour. They influence the way we work as a team – and the way we serve our customers and engage with our stakeholders.
Every day, each one of us makes choices and decisions that directly affect the way we experience each other and the way our customers and stakeholders experience us. Our values give us confidence that we are using the same principles to help us make these decisions throughout our organisation.
SW9 works hard to acknowledge and celebrate individuals and teams within our organisation who consistently live our values and bring our purpose to life through their everyday behaviour, which in turn has a positive impact on our customers, community and stakeholders.
We want people who are energetic, flexible, passionate, forward thinking/innovate and creative. If you think you are the best person to help us create an even better service for our stakeholders, we want to hear from you.
