Social Housing and Public Sector Job Ready Programme

Will I need Work Experience in Social Housing to secure a job?

60-70% of Social Housing Jobs require 1-2 years experience. The remaining 30-40% of entry level housing/public sector jobs requires no experience of housing, but rather knowledge of housing issues (30%) and a comprehensive range of general skills, competencies, and experiences (70%).

Often many training providers, including the leading housing course providers, fail to address or simply neglect the extensive generic transferrable skills required for the roles, which are often more important than the housing knowledge and experience.
