Life at Shepherds Bush Housing Group

At Shepherds Bush Housing Group (SBHG), we strive to create a supportive and inclusive work environment where everyone can thrive. We offer a range of perks and benefits to ensure that our colleagues are happy and motivated. Working at SBHG means being part of a dedicated and passionate team that makes a real difference in people's lives. Here are some of the ways we support our colleagues:



At SBHG, we believe that our colleagues deserve recognition for the incredible work they do and the impact they make to our residents' lives every day. That's why we offer a comprehensive benefits package that includes:

  • Generous time off: With 28 holidays a year, you'll have plenty of time to rest, recharge, and spend time with loved ones.
  • Hybrid working: We understand that work-life balance is important, which is why we offer a hybrid work arrangement that allows you to work from the office and home.
  • Referral program: If you know someone who would be a great addition to our team, refer them to us and receive a reward of £1000 once they have passed their probationary period.
  • Cycle-to-work scheme: We want to help you stay active and reduce your carbon footprint, which is why we offer a cycle-to-work scheme that allows you to purchase a bike and/or safety equipment up to the value of £1,500 and pay for it in instalments throughout the year, completely tax and NI free.
  • Buy and sell holidays: Need some extra time off? With our buy and sell holidays scheme, you can purchase up to three additional days of annual leave or exchange the value of up to three days for cash or another benefit of your choice. The value of this is based on your salary.
  • Pension: We know how important it is to plan for the future, which is why everyone is automatically enrolled in our pension trust, Benpal. You have the option to opt-out if you choose - SBHG rates: 3% EE 5% ER or 4% EE and 6% ER
  • Flexible benefits scheme: Everyone's lifestyle is unique, so our flexible benefits scheme allows you to select the benefits that suit your needs best. Most options offer tax and/or national insurance savings, and our core company-funded benefit is the Simply Computer Loans.
  • Season Ticket loans: Need help with your commute? We offer season ticket loans to make your travel more affordable.

At SBHG, we're committed to supporting our colleagues in every way we can. Join our team and enjoy the benefits of working for an organisation that values and invests in its people.

Get Social

We know that a positive work culture is essential for our colleagues' wellbeing and happiness. Here are some of the ways we promote social connections at SBHG:

Summer and Christmas Parties:

Every year, we organise Summer and Christmas parties that are a highlight of our social calendar. These events are a great opportunity to meet colleagues from across the organisation and have fun.

Volunteer Days:

We are committed to making a positive impact to our community, and our colleagues are at the heart of this effort. That's why we offer two volunteer days per year, allowing you to give back to society and support causes that matter to you.

Our Office Space

Our office is located in the heart of leafy Chiswick, surrounded by local shops and amenities. There are plenty of lovely places to eat lunch and socialise with colleagues after work. We're a 5 min walk from Turnham Green station, and we offer parking by request. 

Supporting Colleagues

The wellbeing of our colleagues is a top priority here at SBHG and we offer a range of assistance and initiatives.
