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 recruiting for a Marketing Officer who will play a lead role in marketing the NHF’s portfolio of conferences, publications and products to the housing sector.
You’ll have excellent technical knowledge of leading marketing disciplines particularly digital marketing and evaluation. Your excellent copywriting skills will showcase your ability to be persuasive as well as creative.
If you thrive working in a fast paced team, have a commercial mindset and confidence in your ability to deliver projects to time and budget, this is a role where you will be able to make your mark in an organization performing a critical role as the voice of housing associations in England.
