Work with us

Populo Living is Newham’s housing company; we are wholly owned by the London Borough of Newham. Populo exist to tackle the shortage of homes in the Borough and to deliver half of these homes at genuinely affordable levels.

The Populo Group has evolved since its inception to become a leading provider of both affordable and privately rented homes. Our profits are recycled back into delivering even more high quality homes for people who want to make Newham home. Having somewhere to call home is fundamental to people’s health and wellbeing and is the
central pillar of our mission.

We believe in “Making Newham home” . We are designing and building better homes and places that people want to call home. Our high quality, spacious and environmentally friendly developments will become new communities and strengthen existing ones. Whether for private or social rent, residents will enjoy excellent standards of design and attention to detail. Together with our sole shareholder Newham Council, we are focused on the need to deliver for Newham’s people. This long-term commitment means that our exceptional customer service and commitment to our tenants is here to stay.

Populo Homes is our registered provider of social housing and is an integral part of the Populo Group. The Group also includes a design and build subsidiary. We are a small dynamic team who have grown quickly and operate in a very collegiate way. We value our connections to Newham, it is important to us to reflect and understand our Borough and its diverse communities. We are always keen to hear from local people who share our values around diversity and inclusion. We welcome applications from all individuals who can bring skills and importantly, the right attitude for our ambitious team.

We are a diverse and socially responsible company and an equal opportunity employer. We encourage anyone who is adaptable and intuitive to apply to join us so we can make the optimum collective contribution to our borough.
