Why work for us

Our work is driven by a passionate belief that our contribution as housing professionals is vital to making communities great places to live and work. Our unique position as the voice of the sector gives the people that work for us great opportunities to shape the future of housing. We’re looking for the best of the best to join us.

Beth O'Malley | Digital manager, Chartered Institute of Housing

From day one at CIH, my ideas have been supported, my visions brought to life and I feel inspired every day at work. Being able to be freely creative and trusted in my role has allowed me to develop so much in the three years I’ve been here. I feel like a part of something bigger that works towards a mission where I know we are making a difference.

Olusola Jinadu | Member engagement manager, Chartered Institute of Housing

Over the last six years, I have had a lot of opportunities to gain knowledge, sharpen my skills and develop myself. Working on projects that make a difference to the professional lives of those working in the housing industry is rewarding. I am glad I work for an organisation that supports flexible working and continually focuses on shared goals to achieve a better service for our members and customers.

Chris Jones | Senior administration officer, Chartered Institute of Housing

I enjoy working for CIH and have worked here now for seven years. CIH has progressed every year regarding members and benefits, and it has been exciting being a part of that progression. We're an ever-evolving organisation, and it's always interesting to see what is next. The best feeling is hearing all the members' positive messages about us and how proud they are to be part of the housing community. Members are a big part of CIH, but my colleagues are also a massive part of why I enjoy working here.

Laura Fordyce | CertCIH, Engagement Manager, Chartered Institute of Housing

Working at CIH as an engagement manager over the last four years has given me the chance to connect and meet with our members across Scotland. I’ve heard first hand about the great work happening across the sector to support and develop communities and enjoy being able to signpost members to our benefits and resources- designed to support housing professionals in their day jobs and with their professional development.

Palwinder Gill | CIHM, former marketing officer, CIH

It may sound cliché, but CIH really is a great place to work! I joined CIH nearly three years ago, and every day has been an exciting challenge. There’s never been a dull moment from executing an inspiring creative campaign to working across our social media channels. It’s an organisation that cares and supports flexible working, which has been great having a young family.
