Welcome to our Careers pages

Hello from Kathryn Fox-Rogers, our Managing Director

“Be bold, be brave, be courageous.” Our founder, Johnnie Johnson lived by those principles - he never shirked a challenge and neither do we.

Thank you for stopping by… I am proud to say that this is a really great place to work, and that is because we really do live and breathe our company values of “One Team”, “Pioneering”, “Empowering” and “Outstanding”.

We have a fantastic team, who have achieved great things in recent years, and continue to strive to improve services for our customers every day.

We have exciting plans for the future, as we become a subsidiary of Sanctuary Housing Association, and we are investing in new state of the art technology to support our 24-hour alarm monitoring service Astraline, which is growing from strength to strength. We are passionate about delivering outstanding homes and services to our residents, and helping them to live longer and live better.

Thank you for considering a career with Johnnie Johnson Housing!

UK based 24-hour alarm receiving centre, available 365 days of the year, Astraline works with leading suppliers of personal alarms across the UK. From reliable fall alarms to sophisticated GPS locators and home sensors, we enable people to live independently for longer. We provide fast reliable support to our customers when they activate their alarm, from notifying next of kin to attending in person to assist with falls.

Our ever-evolving digital offer combines quality service delivery, customer and product leadership, cutting edge technology and first-class account management. We work with industry partners looking for fully scalable technology enabled care and call handling services, through to personal clients looking for support from home. Astraline also provides consultative advice and support for the analogue to digital (A2D) switch, and we work with a number of renowned organisations and universities to deliver trailblazing research projects.

Living Longer, Living Better

See what our resident Valerie has to say about her experiences with Johnnie Johnson Housing.

Armed Forces Covenant logo

We have been presented with the Armed Forces Silver Award under the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme, which recognises employer organisations that pledge, demonstrate or advocate support to the defence and armed forces community, and align their values with the Armed Forces Covenant.

We are very proud of our Silver status in the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme.

Our founder, Johnnie Johnson was a celebrated Royal Air Force pilot and a wartime 'flying ace', so supporting the Armed Forces community is still very important to us at Johnnie Johnson Housing.

In 2018 we signed the Greater Manchester Armed Forces Covenant and in July 2021 we were awarded Silver under the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme.

We recognise the value ex-military - regular and reservists, veterans and military families can contribute to JJH. We are working in partnership with CTP (Career Transition Partnership) and JobOppo. Organisations that provide resettlement services and job opportunities to those leaving the services, we advertise all suitable vacancies on their websites.

We have made a pledge that if ex-service personnel meet the essential criteria, we will guarantee them an interview. We also support JJH colleagues who choose to be members of the reserve and cadet forces, including accommodating and supporting their training and deployment where possible. Johnnie Johnson Housing will ensure that any reservist that needs to take time off for training is paid for up to 5 days training per year.
