Engagement and Communications Manager

  • Up to £30,000 plus benefits
  • London, N1
  • 35 hours per week

At BHA, we have a great relationship with our residents. Many of them have been with us for decades and trust in us as a landlord is high. Over recent years we have made some positive steps in improving how we listen to and engage with them. However, we want to do more. We want to make customer engagement integral to how we work and, in doing so, become an exemplar in the housing sector.

This role will play an important part in delivering that vision for Barnsbury and our communities. It is a great development opportunity, with the chance to work closely with a forward-thinking and dynamic Leadership Team and an excellent Board. You’ll have the opportunity to work on a range of projects, from resident involvement, development of new homes, managing our internal and external communications to helping us maximise our IT skills and digital offer.

We are looking for someone with a passion for social housing, who is organised and dynamic, can think creatively, is a great communicator and really good with people. If that sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you.

If you would like an informal discussion about the role or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Susan French, CEO, either by telephone: 020 7704 2324 or by email:
