Silva Homes is a vibrant, confident and independent housing association with ambitious plans, backed by strong finances and excellent colleagues. We were established in 2008 as a stock transfer association, and since transfer we have added just under 800 homes to our property portfolio and have significantly invested in, and improved, our homes and services to our customers.
Silva Homes owns and manages around 6,200 rented homes, including 400 sheltered housing flats, as well as 1,200 leaseholder properties.
We're a successful, award winning and well regarded housing association. We look to recruit people who match our ambition, with the drive, determination and enthusiasm to continue to make our business succeed. With a major works investment programme to improve our estates, and a development programme to build new homes, this really is an exciting time to join us.
