Joining Us

Working for Swan is a lifestyle, not just a job. As a multi-award-winning Housing Association, Swan has provided great places to call home for over 25 years. Whether working in Development and Regeneration, Operations, Construction (NU living), Care, or Central Services, you can be sure that we will provide you with a home from home feeling in whatever job you do here. 

Swan has been ranked in the top 40 of The Sunday Times Top 100 Best ‘Not for Profit’ Companies for five consecutive years and is currently ranked at number 37. In March 2020 Swan was ranked No.10 in the list of the UK’s Top 25 Housing Associations.

Our people care about making a real difference and are committed to finding better ways of doing things. As an Investors in People Gold Award holder, Swan is dedicated to maximising everyone’s talent. As part of your welcome, you will receive a full and comprehensive induction and we will provide you with a wide range of training and development opportunities so that you can progress your career.

Swan understands that a family-friendly and flexible working culture is more important than ever; we want everyone to have a good work-life balance.  Gone are the days where ‘work’ was about the normal 9am – 5pm in the office, we think it’s now about working hours which best support the business needs, and best support your home life, in a variety of different locations rather than a single office.

Our offices are located centrally in Essex and East London, they all offer modern and flexible workspaces. There are quiet areas, informal meeting spaces and more traditional desk spaces. You have the choice to select a working space that works for you and your working day.

Staff wellbeing is also high on Swan’s agenda and there are frequent ‘Lunch and Learn’ sessions focussing on a diverse range of topics. Recent sessions have focussed on men’s health, menopause and dementia. Supporting everyone’s mental health is a key priority and there are mental health first aiders on hand to offer support to anyone who needs it.

Swan’s work makes a real difference. We build homes and communities and are known for our innovative solutions. We have a fully integrated construction management team working in-house to deliver 10,000 new homes by 2027, building many of these in our own factory that produces modular homes.

As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome all applicants.
