The Cardiff Living partnership is dedicated to delivering far more than high quality homes.

We have committed to target our recruitment and training opportunities at the people living in the Cardiff communities in which we are developing.

The opportunities available through our 10 year programme will include

  • Employment
  • Apprenticeships
  • Work Placements
  • Training
  • Volunteering

We will also be working alongside local groups and local schools and colleges to provide added community benefits, including delivery of our training and curriculum support programmes. You can find more on these programmes through the links below.

All employment and training opportunities will be advertised through our Current Vacancies or Events pages.
