About Phoenix Community Housing 

Phoenix is a housing organisation with a difference. 

We’re led by our residents, with tenants as our Chair and Vice Chair and with residents as the largest group on our Board. Some housing associations talk about resident involvement. We live and breathe it every day.

We believe this is our core strength and it’s helped us achieve a wide range of accolades and awards. 

We’re based in south Lewisham, London, and are proud to be building new homes in our area thanks to a £60million investment. Our first development – a 60-home extra care scheme for older people – has won a range of architectural awards.

We’ve grown as a housing association, taking on the management of 1,500 more homes in late 2021 to bring our total number of homes to around 7,800. The change means more residents will have an opportunity to get involved with Phoenix and steer our future direction.

Our big ambitions apply to our staff too and throughout the challenges of the pandemic we maintain our commitment to being a great employer. We are very proud to have been reaccredited in 2020 as an Investors in People Gold organisation.

If you think you’re the right person to help us make the next stage of our journey, then we’d love to hear from you. We strongly believe in a work-life balance so we’d be pleased to talk about part-time flexible working and job sharing options.

Our benefits include 30 days annual leave (plus 8 bank holidays). We have a generous pension scheme along with a wellbeing programme, comprehensive learning and development package and a culture of employee involvement.
