The National Housing Federation (NHF) is the voice of housing associations in England. We are the trade body to almost 600 housing associations, who have grown from philanthropic roots to provide 2.6 million homes to around 6 million people.
Housing associations are social landlords, and are the largest providers of homes for social rents in the country. We and our members, believe that everyone should be able to live in a great quality home that they can afford.
Many housing associations are also developers in their own right, building around a quarter of new homes every year, and build almost all new social housing. Our sector is not-for-profit, investing its revenues into the people and communities we serve.
We’re looking for a creative Communications Officer that can plan and deliver high-quality material that informs, engages and influences. The importance of our work demands exceptional writing and editing skills to translate complex information into engaging copy that truly resonates with our audiences. You will have the opportunity to craft messages on our vital work, ranging from ending homelessness to decarbonising the nation’s homes.
Experience in planning and delivering comms plans is essential, with a strong understanding of how to expand reach and refine relevance, and a confidence to deploy skills across an organisation to champion first-class communications.
Our members, housing associations, provide homes for around six million people. You will be required to put these members at the heart of your work, and support our ambitious vision – for a country where everyone can live in a quality home they can afford.

We are proud to be an equal opportunity workplace and we value the contribution each individual makes to our work. The NHF is committed to ensuring our workforce reflects the diversity of the society in which we live and encourage applications from people of all different backgrounds, regardless of all protected characteristics or social background.
