Work for Us
At Eastlight, we create a culture where people love to work, offering a fantastic rewards package with focus on the wellbeing and development of our people. Our aim is to recruit talented people who share our Ambitious, Accountable and Inclusive values.
We are a person-centred, forward-thinking organisation that cares deeply about our customers and our people, with a strong sense of purpose.
To add real value back into our communities, it’s important for us to have a diverse workforce. We are working with accessibility experts at Purple, to ensure our application and interview processes are accessible for all.
We support, develop, nurture, and invest in our people, so they reach their full potential and have the necessary knowledge, skills, and attitudes to add real value. We have developed our Succeed at Eastlight scheme to give people the opportunity to start a new career pathway regardless of age or career history.
It’s our people who support the continued development of our homes and communities as places our customers love to live and Eastlight as a place people love to work.

- Trailblazing maternity and paternity leave allowance offering 12 weeks full pay and six weeks half pay for new mothers and fathers – subject to qualifying criteria
- An annual Health and Wellbeing Grant of £200 which can be spent on anything which improves your wellbeing excluding drugs, alcohol and tobacco
- Re-designed office space designed for co-working, creativity and collaboration
