When you join Peabody, you join an extensive and growing business. One with 27,000 homes, 80,000 residents and a 150-year history. As a major housing association we have outstanding challenges for people with talent and motivation. But we also have a strong commitment to the ideals of our philanthropist founder: George Peabody. That means you’ll have every chance to achieve – while making a difference.
Our principles are simple: we believe in helping people and communities to grow, in estates that are springboards – not safety nets. With operations in nearly every London borough and one of the sector’s largest community regeneration programmes, we’re always keen to meet talented people who support our ambitions.
This is a great opportunity to support the regeneration of Thamesmead, the last great regeneration challenge for London, by managing a number of improvement schemes.
Thamesmead is the last great regeneration challenge for London. An area the size of Central London is now ready for transformation. With the arrival of Crossrail from 2018, the growth of London, and Housing Zone status, the opportunity to make your mark is massive.
Peabody's recent acquisition of land, housing and community development organisation is already putting Thamesmead on the map as a place with massive potential for thousands of new homes and jobs. But for one of London's oldest affordable housing providers, it's not just about the numbers. What drives us is to build thriving communities and create a sense of belonging.
