Looking for a new challenge? Join us!

The Ethical Property Company is a great place to work, placing equal value on the social, environmental and financial outputs it generates and supporting an inspiring range of charities, social enterprises and small local organisations in the process.

As an ethical employer we aim to create a positive working environment, pay salaries which are fair and appropriate, and promote equality of opportunity.

Staff here are passionate, ambitious and are encouraged to be independent and entrepreneurial in their approach while working towards agreed collective goals. Achieving a healthy work life balance is seen as a positive achievement and benefits such as the 'cycle to work' scheme and sabbaticals after 5 years of service are all the result of the direct feedback from staff over the years.

When surveyed, 98% of our staff said they enjoyed working for the Company and that they shared our values in whole or in part. In addition, in January 2013 we were accredited as a Living Wage employer and we continue to maintain our exceptionally low pay ratio between the highest and lowest paid member of staff – 4.8:1.
