£25,000 – £26,250 a year

Do you want to work for an organisation that is commercially focused with a social purpose?
As well as generating revenue through development, we have several other commercial business streams including over 100 care homes managed by Sanctuary Care, specialist and supported housing through Sanctuary Supported Living, our Sanctuary Students university accommodation and a telecare service called Sanctuary365.
Development, or building new homes, is a key part of our business.
As well as providing more much-needed housing, our construction programme helps to create jobs and training opportunities, regenerate neighbourhoods and support communities across the UK.
Sanctuary will continue its proud history as a developer of social housing. Between 2020 and 2023, we will build 6,000 homes across a range of tenures. To do this, we will build homes for sale to generate funding for new shared ownership, affordable rent and social rent.
We want to build more homes for social and affordable rent and believe social housing – the right homes, in the right places – could play a bigger role in reducing the impact of the housing crisis.
In addition to building our own homes, we recognise we can grow our contribution to society by working with others. We are delivering more than 1,000 homes through a series of joint ventures and will continue to build more homes in partnership with other organisations
If you want to be part of our future ambitious development plans then this could be the scheme for you!
