About housing recruitment

The residential development sector in the UK continues to increase in complexity; the transfer of housing stock from many local authorities to housing associations, a growing shortfall in supply and resulting pressure on affordability, have resulted in significant changes to government policy.
The lines between private and public developers have blurred and joint ventures have driven a diverse mix of products increasing demand, and widening the skills gap of talent required to deliver them. 
In reaction to these changes in market dynamics, coupled with the shortage of skilled talent across the sector, Michael Page Housing has been created as a specialist division of PageGroup.
Michael Page Housing is a discipline solely dedicated to sourcing talent within residential development, in both public and private sectors across the UK. We have national reach through a network of 12 offices in England, Scotland and Wales, and have been working in the sector for over 12 years. Our team of consultants specialise in defined markets so become experts with an unparalleled network of candidates and clients in their chosen field. Each consultant will focus on either permanent or interim vacancies, therefore developing a network of talent that allows them to react to client requirements in a time efficient and effective manner. 
Our Customers include, local authorities, registered providers, public and private developers, main contractors and service providers within residential development.
The areas of talent sourcing that we cover include:
  • Asset Management, Investment & Regeneration
  • Acquisitions & Development
  • Customer Services & Operations
  • Commercial Management & Construction
  • Planning, Technical & Design
  • Planned & Reactive Maintenance
We work closely with our colleagues in Page Executive who recruit across main board level and our Page Personal discipline who recruit clerical, customer service and trades roles, within the residential market. Our capability within PageGroup allows us to support our clients across all levels of talent sourcing, whilst specialising in very specific market sectors.
We aim to be the recruiter of choice for clients and candidates within the housing sector in the UK so if you need to discuss your talent requirements, or your next career move, you can contact your local Michael Page Property or Construction office who will put you in touch with a specialist consultant.
