Paid Internships with the Housing Executive

The Northern Ireland Housing Executive and GEM (Graduate Employment Mentoring) have embarked on a new partnership to deliver a paid internship programme to people interested in working in the housing sector.

The GEM Programme aims to invest in your energy, talent, passion and values to provide the housing and community sector its leaders of the future. Your time on the programme will be an intense learning experience which will require focus, commitment and flexibility.

The programme, starting in Autumn 2016, will give you a flying start to your career in the sector, and in return for your efforts, you will benefit from a paid trainee-ship, personal and leadership development, and a Level 4 Chartered Institute of Housing qualification.

There are four different roles you can apply for; Community Cohesion, Digital Inclusion, Tenancy Sustainment, and Welfare Reform. Participants must have a degree (in any subject) and also must be an NIHE tenant or living with parents who are NIHE tenants in a Housing Executive estate.

Supporting Communities are helping to facilitate the application process for this exciting programme. Check out our Jobs page to apply!

The deadline for submissions has been extended - now due by September 20th.
