About the organisation:

inhousing is an innovative housing provider focused on the needs of people living with disability. We believe that individuals can live with who they choose, in environments where they have power, choice and control. We achieve this by constructing and renting fantastic independent living homes across Adelaide, metro and some regional areas. Tenants live in their own home and can access any daily living support arrangements, provided by a third-party service provider of their choice.  

Our housing services are based around a customer-centred philosophy, in which all team members and external consultants collaborate to achieve the goals identified by individuals and their families. The use of cutting-edge technology to support dignity, independence and freedom is a key growth area for the association. The successful candidate will possess strong professional and ethical values that align with this philosophy.
