Job Details

Local Space was created in 2006 as part of the solution to providing housing to London’s homeless. Since then, we have continued to grow, in 2016 we embarked on purchasing a programme of over 700 homes, and we have now begun another growth period which will increase the number of homes we manage. We mainly operate in East London.

This is a very exciting time to join us. As a result of our new growth, we have created a new Communications team of two. This role will be the Communications lead and report to the Corporate Services Director.  

Your role will cover:

  • Developing a communications strategy alongside the Corporate Services Director. Actively develop and improve employee engagement. Support resident engagement through measurable and impactful communication campaigns across various channels. Proactively and reactively engage with the media to raise positive brand awareness. Develop a programme of events to develop partnerships and showcase Local Space as an employer of choice.

A self-starter with a track record of managing communication campaigns and experience of using social media and other digital channels to drive engagement and support organisational objectives.


Originally formed by the London Borough of Newham as an innovative and independent vehicle for the acquisition and refurbishment of temporary accommodation; we work in nine local authority areas across London and Essex. We continue to acquire and refurbish properties and we also offer intermediate rented homes for local key workers.

We provide safe, secure, good quality homes for those who need them most. We help local authorities by offering an alternative to the poor quality, expensive private sector accommodation often used for temporary accommodation. During our growth period commencing in 2016 we partnered with Newham Council to purchase 800 new homes. The remaining 76 properties were completed in 2021.
