 · Posted in News

A recruitment drive is underway to find a group of exceptional graduates who are keen to build rewarding careers in housing, led by national building contractor United Living in partnership with The Graduate Employment Recruitment (GEM) programme.

Our graduate programme is designed to not only provide graduates with high quality management and leadership training across a range of job disciplines but also to immerse them into the world of housing and regeneration through first-hand experiences of the challenges and issues that communities are faced with in the 21st Century.

GEM is an award-winning national learning programme which is delivered by the Centre for Partnership, supported by Incommunities housing association. Each of the graduate opportunities offered by United Living and GEM will be two years in length and are accredited by the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH).

Anne Newman, United Living Group’s people services director, said: “We are really excited to be working with the GEM Programme for another year to help recruit our second cohort of graduates and develop a pipeline of leaders. The exposure to the world of housing gained through the programme ensures we are developing leaders who are not only educated in the technical skills to provide 21st Century Housing but also are shaping the solutions required for 21st Century Communities”

Centre for Partnership Director, Trevor Smith says: “The GEM Programme is a great fit for graduates who want to pursue careers in 21st Century organisations that change lives and be part of an exciting new future for the sector. The GEM Programme focusses on developing GEMs from talented students to housing sector leaders of the future.”

United Living is looking for graduates with construction related degrees who have a commercial head and are keen to work for a national, performance driven, ambitious organisation with a passion for social gain, community development and environmental sustainability.
