Join our team.
We’re a small company working to make a big difference to housing and we’re recruiting!
We’re looking for people with drive and ambition who believe passionately in what we’re doing. Our purpose is to change the way that people think about housing, by creating houses that place quality and the lives of the people who live in them at the heart of decision making.
We’re determined to influence change through the pursuit of excellence, and the innovation and exceptional houses that result.
We’ve built a great team with a diverse range of backgrounds and skills. We share a common vision and an ‘up-for-the-challenge’ attitude. Ultimately we’re here to do our best work and are looking for those who are like minded. As a team we’re looking to create an amazing business with massive scope for personal development and fulfilment. We want to do something amazing and share the desire to do our best work. We would love to hear from you if think you’re right for us.
Right now we’re looking for people for the roles below — all of which will be office based at our central Reading HQ. BUT we’re always delighted to hear from someone who thinks they can enhance what we’re doing. Do drop us a line if your skills lie outside of these roles but you’d like to join our quest.
Supporting the wider team by being responsible for the smooth day-to-day running of the office. You’ll have energy, great IT skills, and will be good at working with and organising others.

Testing and being unafraid to try new things. A charismatic person with a great attitude who can help us engage with our audience and develop a strong Kiss House voice. You’ll be quick to learn and highly motivated to learn more / push your skills further.
