We want our people to be happy, empowered, motivated and feel proud to be part of the Saffron Community. We know by having great people we can deliver a great service for our tenants.

We trust our staff to do the right thing and we are looking for people whose values are aligned with ours, PACE:

We give our people the freedom to learn, grow and invest in their skills as well as their growth for their future career aspirations. We do this by offering a variety of learning opportunities, including our innovative e-learning platform which allows people to learn what they want, when they want to.

We work with and support our staff to work in an agile way to provide flexibility as well as a work/life balance. Where the role allows, there is the choice of where you work, such as, in the office, work from home, a coffee shop, park, or a combination of all.

When recruiting for senior positions we guarantee an interview for a female and one person from an underrepresented group.
