Talent attraction to the housing industry has been a big topic at this year’s housing event in Manchester, and our enthusiastic Recruitment team were present and on hand to offer advice and support to those who needed it!
Our Marketing and Communications Lead Alma Sheren joined the fantastic CIH Futures Board on a panel discussion to talk about how media bias plays into the negative perceptions of the industry, and the need for a national drive to attract younger people into housing. The Futures board shared their experiences of taking part in the GEM Programme, which offers a wide range of jobs and intensive learning experiences in the housing sector across the country and internationally, and works to match people to roles which will suit their passion, skills and experience.
Our Principal Leadership Development Consultant Vicki Haverson gave an inspiring talk on Imposter Syndrome and how to overcome some of the challenges many of us face throughout our career development journey.
Greenacre was really pleased to share a platform with some of the sector’s most passionate and motivated professionals eager to maximise their potential and contribute to helping more young people gain a step up in their careers.
As a national housing recruiter, we are always keen to play our part in supporting the younger generation into housing roles which match their strengths, their motivations and their passions. The sector has a huge variety of roles across it’s different fields, from tech-based roles working in asset management, to housing services and tenant facing roles, to a huge selection of wider business development roles from beginner right up to executive level.
We feel that not enough is being done to share the fantastic benefits of working in housing, and are currently in discussions with several leading housing providers to form a collective in driving forward housing as a great career option to young people through schools, colleges and higher education campaigns.
