Why work for L&Q

We build careers like we build our homes - with solid foundations. With L&Q you can find meaningful careers across our business

About us

L&Q is a regulated charitable housing association and one of the UK's most successful social businesses.

We house around 250,000 people in more than 105,000 homes, primarily across London and the South East.

We are a long-term partner in the neighbourhoods where we work. We build aspiration, opportunity and confidence for everyone in our communities.

Our vision is that everyone deserves a quality home that provides them with the opportunity to live a better life. This echoes our purpose to provide homes and neighbourhoods that everyone can be proud of.

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

We are 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.
