Formed in April 2015 from a historic merger between two of Manchester’s largest housing associations – City South and Eastlands Homes. In the subsequent two years the Group has achieved its initial merger aspirations and is now extending and expanding (doubling) its new homes programme across a range of tenures and locations. It currently owns and manages more than 13,000 homes in central, south and east Manchester.

One Manchester strives for equality, diversity and inclusion in all that we do. We positively encourage applications for employment from eligible candidates regardless of sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, religion or belief, marital status, or pregnancy and maternity.

In accordance with the aims of our Equality and Diversity strategy and organisation commitment to address the employment of underrepresented groups, One Manchester is operating 'the Rooney Rule'. This means that we aim to interview at least one candidate from an ethnically diverse community and one female candidate for each senior leadership selection process.

We also seek to promote a culture of flexible working where possible and practical and applications from candidates seeking flexible and/ or part time working patterns will be considered. Going forward we will be transitioning to a culture where agile working will be a feature of many of our roles.
