About us

Housing recruitment experts since 2017.

At SHR (Social Housing Recruitment), we work with Housing Associations, TMO’s, ALMO's, local authorities and for profit housing providers, enabling them to deliver lasting social impact through our specialist talent solutions.

Established in 2017, our roots in Social Housing follow our founding company, Principal People (the UK's leading Health, Safety, Environment and Sustainability recruitment business) which began working within the Social Housing industry in 1986.

We work across a wide variety of sectors within Social Housing and have a team of dedicated Consultants each who are assigned specific areas of focus, to allow them to be become specialists within their own individual markets.

We have extensive experience and a proven track record of offering tailored solutions for both permanent, contract/interim and temp to perm requirements.

Our far reach, deep specialism and established presence in the Social Housing community enables us to successfully support Housing providers with the recruitment of all levels within their organisation from Executive Director and board appointments through to operational staff.

We are proud to be part of such a dynamically evolving sector, which plays a vital role in the sustainability of the UK's economy by providing the most crucial of services to individuals and families who require them.
