Rhiannon Davies CIHCM | Housing Policy and Performance Officer, North Kesteven District Council
Completing the Level 5 Diploma has significantly developed my strategic knowledge and skills. It is also reinforcing the principles of ethical professional practice, which are extremely important within our sector. Achieving and holding Chartered Member status demonstrates my commitment to the housing profession, both within my own organisation and in the wider local government and housing sectors and gives me the tools I need to continue my development as a housing professional.
Clive Greenwood CIHCM | Income Management Team Leader, Unity Housing Association Ltd
Through free member events I have been able to facilitate improvements in my organisation in areas from tackling domestic abuse to improving tenant engagement. Alongside these I have seen a colleague attend a career development event and come back so re-invigorated she immediately took a number of steps which successfully propelled her to a new role in her career. It is member events such as these which I believe are at the heart of the value CIH membership offers.

Having access to excellent resources allows me to work to a consistently high standard and ensure continuous professional development.
