There is plenty of opportunity for employees to stand out and drive improvement in Paradigm Housing Group. Many staff have built long-term careers with the people-centred not-for-profit organisation in High Wycombe, where there is a high rate of internal appointments for job vacancies.

Paradigm began as the first large-scale voluntary stock transfer in the 1980s, from Chiltern District Council. For tenants, it provides about 15,000 affordable homes in London and surrounding areas for people who would otherwise be priced out of the housing market. For employees, it offers a friendly and open place to work, with an appreciation of the importance of a work-life balance and a great benefits package.

The diverse workforce has a strong social committee and wellbeing working group. The housing group encourages formal and informal job shadowing across different teams, saying “their passion is infectious, and leaves you with a true feeling of who Paradigm is”. All directors spend time in customer-facing roles to keep in touch with Paradigm's communities.

Paradigm is a people-centred organisation that has seen many employees build long-term careers and the internal fill rate for vacancies continue to grow. It believes that the best way to learn is to spend time shadowing different people and teams, and support leadership and management development through its structured programmes and apprenticeships.
