We’re supporting Scottish Housing Day

Scottish Housing Day is an annual event hosted by the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) to promote areas in housing. This year the chosen subject is Housing as a Career.

Unlike other similar professions, Scotland’s housing profession has no dedicated workforce strategy. That is despite Scotland’s rented sector managing around one million homes and employing tens of thousands of practitioners to help manage these homes and support their tenants. The vast majority of housing practitioners engage well with their residents and listen to them with respect.

The publication of Housing to 2040 makes it clear that there will be increasing expectations on landlords, letting agents, housing practitioners and developers to deliver even more value for tenants and customers in the services that they provide over the coming years. As such, there is a responsibility on employers to ensure they have a skilled, knowledgeable and ethical workforce that can improve housing outcomes for their communities.

So, for this year, we want to celebrate the work of everyone who has made housing their career of choice and establish even more ways that people can join this profession.

We will be showcasing the work of our Housing teams on Wednesday, and also using this as an opportunity on social media to share the link to current recruitment opportunities.

Tune into our social media channels on Wednesday to hear more from various Housing staff members and find out what made them choose Housing as their career.
