Working in central functions and customer services

Central functions are what we call our back-office roles.

Colleagues in central functions often come to us from non-housing backgrounds. We benefit from the new perspectives they bring.

Where you fit in

Central functions are made up of:

  • IT
  • marketing
  • HR
  • facilities
  • customer services
