About Orwell Housing

placeholder 960

When did it all Begin?

Orwell Housing Association was formed in 1963 in Ipswich, employing no staff and managing only a handful of properties. Today, Orwell provides a range of services including housing, support and care services. We employ around 700 staff including relief and volunteers whilst managing approximately 4,000 homes for 7500+ residents.

Orwell occupies a refurbished Victorian building at 325 London Road, Ipswich, as our Registered Head Office, as well as a branch office in Lowestoft to cater for our tenants in the Waveney & Great Yarmouth areas.

Life at Orwell

Where you work should reflect what you stand for.

Our Values are integral to everything we do at Orwell.

Our values focus on the four areas of ‘P A C E’.

P is for People-focused. People are at the heart of everything we do.

A is for Ambitious. We want everyone to realise their full potential. That includes those we support and house.

C is for Collaborative. We will work with tenants, customers, colleagues, and like-minded organisations to find solutions together.

E is Effective. We will provide the highest possible standard of service and support.

 

Inclusivity matters

At Orwell, we embrace diversity in all that we do. Because of our diverse community, we are committed to making sure we hire employees from all backgrounds, so that we can truly connect with our customers and service users. We nurture an environment that embraces and values all people. We love what we do and we share the common value of caring for and respecting our customers and colleagues and making a difference in the communities in which we work.

We care 

Our people choose to work for and stay working for us, because what they do really matters: every single role within Orwell makes a difference to people’s lives. All our amazing people have one thing in common: passion. Passion for the job they do, for the difference we make, and desire to constantly improve the way we do things, because we care.

Work for us

Join us – Behind every great organization, there’s an amazing team

It’s our mission to provide a customer-centric service which puts the ethos of “making a difference” at our core. And without our people, this simply wouldn’t be possible. We are so proud of each and every one of our team, whether they work directly with our customers or provide ongoing day to day support to our team: From the repairs team who work tirelessly to keep everything in tip top condition to the IT experts working hard to keep our systems running smoothly; our people are positive, compassionate, and proud to be part of #TeamOrwell.

Our people and culture

Our culture puts care at the heart of everything we do. We work collaboratively as #Team Orwell and we love what we do, sharing the common value of supporting and respecting our customers and colleagues and making a difference to the communities in which we work.
