Aine McGaley  |  Director of housing and resident services designate

The CIH events are extremely valuable and educational for all areas of housing. My team and I really enjoy the variety that is available and see it as an opportunity to gain more knowledge on what is happening across the sector, in both Ireland and the UK. The events are also a great way to network and share ideas with others.

CIH professional standards

The new self-assessment tool is built around the seven professional standards characteristics and is relevant for everyone who works in housing, whatever your role or specialism. Designed to help you reflect on your career journey, identify key strengths, and highlight a clear path for further development.
