Working at the SFHA

We are a small, energetic team of people with various skills in public affairs (housing policy, research and media); commercial activities (events management, membership, design); and corporate services (finance, facilities, HR, IT and administration).

We employ people who are committed to the contribution that housing associations make to our communities.  

Members are at the heart of everything we do. This is what enables the SFHA to be an effective voice and advocate for Scotland’s housing sector, exercising influence and providing support. 

Everyone is encouraged to perform to the highest standard possible. We have a learning and development programme for staff which encourages all staff to increase their confidence, knowledge and skills. We employ a Modern Apprentice and offer internships from time to time. 

We are a Living Wage employer, and we are accredited by Investors in People. 

Employees of the SFHA are entitled to a range of benefits. 

  • Childcare Vouchers

Public Affairs Intern


££21,920 per year

Homes save lives. Everyone has the right to live in a safe, warm, affordable home, in a thriving community. SFHA’s members work day in, day out to make that right a reality for people across Scotland.

We are recruiting an intern to help us represent Scotland’s housing associations and co-operatives, building strong relationships with politicians and policymakers, to help our members achieve their potential.

You will provide support in managing political relationships, work with our expert policy and communications teams to draft punchy, readable briefings and identify opportunities to share our members’ work with politicians.

Enthusiasm and initiative is more important than experience for this exciting role, where you’ll have the chance to develop your communications and lobbying skills in an organisation that’s driving real change.
