Working together to provide safe and quality homes for those in need
Why work for us?
Our work is based on our values of putting people first, working with integrity, being open to innovation and working in partnership with like-minded organisations. Our values are the foundation of our organisation and shape how we deliver services. We put people first and work hard to create a friendly and supportive working environment. This is reflected in our Investors in People silver status, which we were awarded in March 2019. We are dedicated to investing in your learning and development, and at the heart of this is our desire to develop a culture of employee engagement and high performance
When you join our team, you can expect:
- Offices in the heart of east London, a short walk from Stratford station, Westfield Shopping Centre and the Olympic Park

- 27 days annual leave rising to 28 days after two years’ service and 30 days after five years’ service, in addition to public and bank holidays
- Eye tests for staff who are not in the BHSF scheme

Local Space Board Member x 2
Local Space is a dynamic and unique registered provider of social housing. Many of our tenants and communities are facing challenging times – and that will continue for the foreseeable future. Our ambitions are huge and transformational; it is therefore important that we have a governance and strategic framework that moves our agenda forward. To support this, we are looking for 2 individuals to join our dedicated Board. We want to see people who have a keen interest and competence in understanding communities as well as the importance of focusing on customers. The issue of diversity and equality is important to our strategic development and growth plans, not least because of our diverse customer base. We recognise that issues around race equality, disability, gender and culture etc all play a part in determining the nature of our business.
Whilst you do not have to be a housing specialist, it is important that you have a demonstrable interest in housing those in need, and an aptitude to develop in the field. Strong analytical and communication skills will be essential as well as an understanding of the role of a Board.
Black, Asian and minority ethnic people and women are currently under-represented on our Board and we welcome applications from these communities.
Remuneration: £4,000.00 per annum.
For your information, assessments will take place on 15th or 16th February 2021, interviews will be scheduled for 22nd February 2021.
