St John of God Housing Association clg is committed to providing affordable, secure and high quality housing for adults with Intellectual Disability or Mental Health Needs and for Older People. We work in partnership with St John of God Community Services and other voluntary and statutory agencies to ensure that people with specific needs have full access to appropriate housing and to the support that they need to live independently, in the community.

St John of God Housing Association was established in 2006 as an Approved Housing Body by the St John of God Brothers, who have been leaders in providing services for the most vulnerable children and adults in Ireland since 1879. The St John of God values of Hospitality, Compassion, Excellence, Justice and Respect remain central to our work in housing. We are an Approved Housing Body with an independent Board of Directors and are subject to regulation by the Housing Agency Regulation Office.

The Board of St John of God Housing Association, an equal opportunities employer, invites applications for the position of Chief Executive, who will build on the organisation’s success and lead it through its next stage of development. As St John of God Housing Association is a leading provider of housing for people with specific needs, the Chief Executive will be expected to contribute to housing policy and to greater inclusion for the communities we support.
