Job Details

We’ve got a great story to tell.

Populo Living is Newham’s dedicated property company, focused on creating affordable, sustainable communities. We believe in the power of home to shape lives and futures we strive to provide residents with safe, comfortable living environments while fostering a sense of community and belonging. We build great homes for the people of Newham, while both keeping land under council ownership and adding genuine social value.

100% owned by Newham Council, we are an innovative property and housing company that is building homes to help solve the housing crisis. Our new developments include 50% affordable housing, a ratio we are able to achieve through strong in-house development expertise and an unrelenting focus on commerciality. We have built 800 homes to date and have 700 with planning permission to be delivered in next 2 years. Our current portfolio includes a mix of c.250 affordable homes, both rented and leasehold, managed by our RP subsidiary Populo Homes, as well as direct to market rental properties.

We are excited to be seeking a new Communications and Marketing Manager. We think we have a great story to tell and we want our new Manager to help us get the word out. We are a smaller, nimble player making a difference in the housebuilding sector in the capital, and crucially, we are feeding value back to our parent, Newham Council. The innovative work we are doing locally is having a huge impact and we want you to lead our marketing and comms function to make sure that we can get our message out more widely, as well as contribute to the commerciality of our business through our lettings service.

You will bring comms experience gained in the residential development sector to manage a small team and lead on all comms and marketing activity at Populo, both to detail new information about Populo to our customers and stakeholders and manage our branding, but also to generate interest from potential rental tenants to choose us. If you are excited by what we do and have a passion for working at a commercially driven organisation that is committed to building homes to add social value, not just profit, then we’d love to hear from you.
