Housing Services

For many years now, the UK’s housing crisis has left local authorities, housing associations and housing providers facing the challenges of shortage of stock, under-investment and increased homelessness. Oyster has worked with stakeholders across the Housing Services sector since we set up in 2004, supplying experienced professionals for roles in this vital sector.

Our experience in Housing Services recruitment

As of 2019, the National Housing Federation has estimated that more than 8.4 million people are currently living in unaffordable, insecure or unsuitable homes across the UK. With the current housing crisis, the UK is facing it is more essential than ever for Housing Associations and Local Authorities to be able to fill their roles with the right kind of candidates dedicated to addressing the current situation in the country and helping those in need.

Our Housing Services teams have extensive knowledge in their particular field, allowing our consultants to source high-quality candidates for their clients. Oyster can assist in lessening the pressure on Local Authorities and Associations by finding quality applicants for their roles. This allows organisations to dedicate more time to address more pressing issues and effectively help improve the service provided to existing and future residents.
