Rachael Williamson | Head of policy and external affairs, Chartered Institute of Housing
I joined CIH less than a year ago and have already had some fantastic opportunities to develop in my career. Every day is different and it’s great to know that the work we do in supporting housing professionals and working in partnership to promote quality and affordable housing makes a real difference to people’s lives. CIH is a really friendly, flexible and supportive organisation that offers a great work-life balance – it enables me to have a really fulfilling career while balancing family needs.
Alexandra Gibson | Policy and public affairs officer, Chartered Institute of Housing
I’ve worked at CIH for three years now and from the beginning I have felt valued and able to confidently put my ideas forward. My role is varied, exciting and has changed quite significantly over time as I have been trusted and encouraged to use my own knowledge and skills to help bring the best out of our policy and influencing work to really expand our offer. The flexibility of my job at CIH means that I have a healthy work-life balance and I am grateful for the support both personally and professionally.
Chris Jones | Senior administration officer, Chartered Institute of Housing
I enjoy working for CIH and have worked here now for seven years. CIH has progressed every year regarding members and benefits, and it has been exciting being a part of that progression. We're an ever-evolving organisation, and it's always interesting to see what is next. The best feeling is hearing all the members' positive messages about us and how proud they are to be part of the housing community. Members are a big part of CIH, but my colleagues are also a massive part of why I enjoy working here.
Laura Fordyce | CertCIH, Engagement Manager, Chartered Institute of Housing
Working at CIH as an engagement manager over the last four years has given me the chance to connect and meet with our members across Scotland. I’ve heard first hand about the great work happening across the sector to support and develop communities and enjoy being able to signpost members to our benefits and resources- designed to support housing professionals in their day jobs and with their professional development.
