Join our team

Local Space is an innovative and dynamic social landlord with charitable status that is dedicated to delivering affordable and quality social housing to people on lower incomes, to help them improve their quality of life. This is an exciting time for us as we progress our development ambitions to acquire 800 homes by 2020 - this is significant growth in the number of homes we own. At the heart of this is our desire to develop a culture of employee engagement and high performance that reflects our values in the services we provide.  

We are an Investors in People (IIP) organisation and reaccredited achieving Silver status in January 2016. In our ambitions to continually develop we are committed to being reaccredited against the 6th generation IIP standard in 2017/18. The new standard provides a deeper assessment on how organisations are doing as people orientated organisations that can successfully deliver against their objectives.

We are commited to equality and diversity in valuing our staff, tenants and residents, and work hard to create a friendly and responsive working environment.
