Please be aware that due to the nature and sensitivity of some of our roles we are not always able to consider applications from Southern Housing Group residents. We would not normally appoint residents to roles which cover the estate or properties which they live in.

Southern Housing Group is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

Please note that colleagues who are at risk of redundancy due to the current business reviews will be given priority consideration for this role.  Applications from colleagues who are not at risk will be considered if there are no expressions of interest from ‘at risk’ colleagues.
