Careers at Harbour Housing

The first thing about life at Harbour Housing is we’re different. So we’re not going to do what everyone else does and sell you an aspiration of what we want you to think what working for us is all about. We’ll tell you what it’s really like.

Our reason and very meaning of existence is to do our bit to transform the lives of some of life’s most at-risk people. It drives everything we do and every single person who is part of our team is an essential part of the operation. It’s true that when working with vulnerable people, sometimes there are challenges, but the reward of success is worth every moment in between.

We could use endless words such as ‘progression pathways’ or ‘leadership programmes’ to tell you how working here is the start of a career. Instead, we’ll tell you this. A good number of our staff, including the majority of our management team have worked here for a number of years and have progressed in their jobs. There’s every reason that when you join us, that could be you. We’re an organisation that trusts and invests in its staff; the diversity of skills and personalities in our team is why we’re constantly growing and evolving.

We are not a large organisation with an endless army of pen-clicking management teams locked away in offices. If anything, we’re more like a family. Everyone, from our Operations Director to the newest member of our team providing the day to day support for our clients, is as important as each other and all vital to what we do.

At Harbour, you won’t ever need to make an appointment to see a colleague – just pop your head around the door. You’ll also frequently see our Board of Trustees, too. No one is a stranger at Harbour Housing.

We’re not going to list all the awards we’ve won as part of the pitch, either, although we’ve won a few and we’re proud of that. Instead we’ll tell you that the biggest award we will ever win is not one that comes in a trophy – it’s being part of the story of all those who we work with who have come to us at the lowest point in their lives and moved on from us in a much better place than where they began.

What we offer you is not just a job. We’re offering you a career. Whether you stay with us for many years or just a few, by being part of Harbour Housing you’ll be part of our hugely exciting future as we do our bit to help some of most at-risk people as well as our mission to reduce homelessness.

Ultimately, we won’t stop until homelessness stops. We are Harbour Housing and we hope you’ll be as much as part of our future as we can be a part of yours.
