    It's hard work, you think on your feet a lot of the time, but it's very rewarding. Pay is very good, and the team I work in look out for each other, I really enjoy my job, and I do believe that Housing 21 care about their employees.


    It's hard work, you have to accept that working in housing and care services is fast paced and at times exhausting.

      The interview selection process is based on who knows who, unfair selection process in place within the senior management team. Give false hope to internal staff as senior managers discuss amongst themselves who they have already chosen.
