Hear from our Head of Communications and Design:


Here at Moat we’re all about looking forward and aiming higher – for the homes we deliver, the communities we work in and the people we employ.

It’s a very exciting time for us right now as we continue on our journey to become a digital business. We’ve just launched our refreshed branding, new corporate website and customer portal, allowing our customers to engage with us digitally on a much greater scale. To articulate our vision and values, good effective communication, across multiple channels, with our customers, stakeholders and employees (or Moatees as we like to call ourselves) is essential; and that’s where you come in.

I’m looking for a motivated, experienced and enthusiastic Communications and Media Manager to work alongside me in our small (but fun) cross-functional Communications and Design Team as we enter this exciting phase of the business together.

In this varied role, you will be leading on our range of internal and external communication activities. We take communicating to our internal audience just as seriously as our external audiences, and we’re all about creating informed, engaged and connected Moatees. You will be media and social media smart and bring real experience of handling media enquiries. You will be someone who can accurately capture our key messages, translate them into actions and, through proven leadership experience, inspire and motivate the team to deliver. You’ll also be brilliant at the basics; exceptional writing ability, organisational, time management and people skills.

You need to be imaginative, passionate, a self-starter with a great sense of fun. If you’re looking for a role to make your own, then I’d love to see your application!

Our ambition is simple - to bring an end to housing need.

Have a look through our feeds and see how we did it – it’s a great example of the amazing group of people we have here, who will always go that extra mile and enjoy every minute of it!

Your benefits:
In return for your hard work, we will reward you with a competitive salary, pension scheme and the option of flexible working to give you a great work life balance. We offer a generous annual leave entitlement with the flexibility to buy and sell more.
We take pride in our people to ensure they are equipped with the knowledge they require to carry out their role and inspire them to learn more which is why we offer further education sponsorship and leadership programmes.
