Where we work

Operating in the Sydney metropolitan area across 20 local government areas from the City of Randwick to the City of Blacktown, we have people who work as housing managers, in maintenance, allocations, customer service, development, finance, IT and HR.

Our staff are based between our Head Office in Haymarket and our Northern Beaches Office in Brookvale. Housing Managers also provide regular outreach services from offices in South Coogee, Glebe and Mill Hill.

Our culture: employee opinion survey

It's a great place to work and we are keen to recruit talented team players who want to make a difference. With the work we do, you can expect lots of variety and opportunities to learn. We operate a comprehensive learning and development program.

We are value driven and our strong values and positive culture mean we have a really positive working environment, which brings our team together and drives our business performance.

Bridge Housing has a fantastic corporate culture recognised by many of our staff, partners, contractors, and other stakeholders.

The results of Bridge Housing’s 7th consecutive annual survey reveal that staff have remained highly engaged with their work and the organisation throughout a period of significant change as we prepare to grow our portfolio by 60% and increase our staff complement from 60 to 80 people in 2019 .

The 2019 Employee Opinion Survey shows:

  • 81% of staff indicated they felt engaged, 4% higher than the industry average and equal our 2018 result.
  • 89% indicated they are satisfied with the organisation’s progress and success in delivering outcomes, a slight decrease on 91% in 2018, but still 15% higher than the industry average.
  • 74% of staff believe decisions in this organisation are made in a timely matter
  • 81% say their work is challenging them to develop new skills
  • 73% feels they have control over when, where, and how they do my job.

Based on these results, our focus in the coming year will be on greater staff involvement, career progression and cross-team collaboration and communication.

Career pathways

We provide a career pathway for our all staff through the organisation and to enhance their industry skills as community housing professionals. We strive to create opportunities for additional responsibilities, recognition and higher duties. Our managers work in a collaborative, respectful way with their teams.

Read Jessica's story about her temporary role as Assistant Technical Officer 

JessicaPearsonFMy highlights so far during my temporary position as Assistant Technical Officer are definitely the change in my personal time management; I have had the freedom to plan my own schedule for the week as I have been out of the office a lot, being trusted to do so from my manager has given me confidence in the work I am doing.

Applying my current technical knowledge and putting it practical use has been encouraging for me. I have been taking full advantage of the knowledge our Contractors and Technical Officers have shared with me whilst out onsite, it has been continuous learning and training, which I am lucky to have had.

Most of all, the opportunity I have been given to throw myself into this role has made it clearer for me which type of career I would like to follow. Although taking a step into such male dominated industry, it has made me more motivated to pursue it. I hope to further my training and apply for a permanent job in the future.
