Why work for L&Q

We build careers like we build homes – with solid foundations. At L&Q, you’ll find meaningful careers across the whole business.

About us

L&Q is one of the UK’s leading housing associations and developers. 

We house around 250,000 people, primarily across London, the South East and North West of England.  

Our charitable Foundation supports the communities that our residents create, awarding grants to support good causes that promote aspiration and opportunity, and providing free financial advice and support with employment and training opportunities. 

Our vision is that everyone deserves a quality home that gives them the chance to live a better life. This echoes our purpose to provide homes and neighbourhoods everyone can be proud of. We will do this by delivering safe, high-quality homes, services and support for all our residents.

We are creating opportunities for both the people who need new homes – and for the passionate, talented people who will join us to help achieve our ambitions.

Learning and development opportunities at L&Q

  • Induction and onboarding
    To make sure new starters have a solid understanding of our business and culture, we welcome and support them with a comprehensive suite of workshops and e-learning modules.
  • Skill building
    You can expect a range of learning opportunities throughout your career that will build the knowledge, skills and behaviours you need to succeed in your role and contribute to our collective success.
  • Insights discovery
    We develop awareness of personal preferences, how other people may differ to ourselves and how we can better connect and communicate with each other.
  • People management training
    We provide our people managers with the core skills required to be successful in their roles.
We're committed to the development of our people at L&Q – that's why we support individuals, teams and departments to continuously evolve to reach their full potential. Here, Lettings Operations Manager, Tiffany, talks about training and development at L&Q.
