What is North Star?
North Star is a group of housing associations operating across the North East and North Yorkshire. We build and rent high quality affordable housing to meet a variety of needs, including 650 units of specialist supported housing. We are committed to creating homes and building futures as well as investing in people at every level.
Polaris, also called the "North Star" is a constant in the sky. It's more than just a single star; it's a natural beacon that's been used to navigate for centuries. It provides direction to those who are lost and without any other form of conventional navigation. Stars shine, and we look to them for guidance and inspiration. Our organisation is full of North Stars'. Bright people who sparkle, achieving great things, and rising stars who shatter expectations, raise the bar and are great to be around.
What is good about working at North Star?
We are growing, leading the way with new approaches and thriving as a business. We were voted No 1 landlord 2018 and No 2 in 2019 ( 24Housing), and were the first Housing Association in England to attain Investors in People Platinum standard. We only employ exceptional people, and invest significantly in the development of everyone. People are at the centre of the business, supported by a culture of relational leadership where everyone has a strong voice and influence.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for a motivated and skilled communicator to join our communities team. You will have experience of working with community groups and volunteers in a professional setting. You will be passionate about delivering excellent customer experience and you will always ensure the voices of North Star tenants are heard across the organisation. You will have a track record in developing great relationships that connect customers to the business.
You will join the team as we embark on the transformation of our tenant connection activity. You will be instrumental in developing, trialing and implementing new ways of hearing and amplifying the voices of North Star tenants.
