Community Housing Cymru


We are seeking a passionate, entrepreneurial, outcome focussed, team player to lead Community Housing Cymru’s marketing and communications activities to ensure all of our members are fully informed and engaged.

About Us:

Community Housing Cymru is the trade body for housing association in Wales.  We have 35 members, who provide homes to ten percent of the Welsh population, collectively employ around 9,000 people and provide a diverse range of services across the whole of Wales.

We exist to support our members and speak with one voice ontheir behalf.  Member engagement is crucial to our ability to credibly represent their views, co-develop policy solutions, lobby for change through national campaigns, and provide services that are relevant to them.

Two way engagement is essential if we are to understand their businesses and the challenges and opportunities they face.

We want all of our members to value the practical benefits of being a member of CHC, but we also want them to be connected to us at an emotional level.  This role is critical to the success of us doing that.

We have a social heart and a commercial mind.  We have ambitious commercial targets and the surplus we make from our commercial activity is reinvested to support our core work of influencing and lobbying to ensure the best possible operating environment for members.

Job Role:

We are looking for an exceptional individual to provide a strategic approach to our communications, marketing and member engagement, increasing brand awareness whilst also maximising participation and attendance across our activities and programme of events.

The role combines the leadership and development of creative communication and marketing plans with hands on involvement with implementation and delivery.
