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
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 has a quality home that they can afford. We combine our social purpose with commercial drive to create homes and neighbourhoods that residents can be proud of.

So, 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.
