So what do our staff say about why Raven is 'A Great Place to Work'?

Tracey Howes, Community Housing Manager says:

'I joined Raven as a Customer Services Advisor as the post gave me the flexibility I needed being a full time working Mum. As my children got older, Raven supported me in studying for a housing qualification and I successfully applied to become a Community Housing Manager. My job is challenging and varied and I hope I am making a difference for the residents I work with.’

Michael Ryan, Projects & Voids Quality Manager says:

‘I actually joined Raven on their apprentice scheme and can vouch for their commitment to training and career development. Progression has led me to my current role now as Project Quality Manager, which means I am responsible for getting empty property back into use as quickly as possible yet to a high standard - ensuring that local housing needs are met - whilst overseeing the new in-house project team.’
