JGP support housing associations across the UK in achieving their ambitions, helping them recruit the people they need to succeed. They have set out to ensure that their clients always feel confident and assured when recruiting – giving you access to a collective of highly effective people, products and services.
At a time when traditional recruitment methods are becoming increasingly ineffective and, as a result, incredibly costly, JGP offer alternative solutions. These solutions are driven by data and specifically designed to enable housing associations to engage and attract exactly the type of candidates you’re looking for.
Offering a range of resourcing, marketing and software services, JGP can help you develop your employer brand, get the right messages in front of the right people and streamline your processes. On top of this, National Housing Federation members have access to exclusive offers and significant discounts of up to 67% on a range of services.
Samina Khan, HR Officer, Tower Hamlets Community Housing:
"We are delighted with the JGP Employer Account and partnering Online Application Form. The system is slick, looks great and, above all else, is incredibly easy to use. It’s fantastic being able to see exactly where our applications are coming from, allowing us to gain a very clear idea of what advertising avenues have been most effective. I would have no hesitation in recommending this incredibly easy-to-use system to others, it has made my life so much easier and changed our recruitment process for the better."
Perry Davis, Corporate Services Manager, Teachers' Housing Association:
"The reporting function will allow us to make better decisions moving forward and in this instance we could see that JGP provided the best response of all the media we used. We would definitely recommend JGP to other housing associations, they attracted a large number of high quality applications including the candidate to whom we offered the position. On top of that, the Employer Account was incredibly easy to use and made the whole process straightforward and highly effective."

We’ve been working with JGP for more than 10 years now and we are very happy with the service we receive, hence why we’ve stayed around for so long! Our package of unlimited advertising, which includes a range of extra enhancements and features, offers excellent value for money compared to other job boards - and the modern, streamlined ATS allows us to process, shortlist and communicate with our candidates quickly and easily, helping to save valuable staff time and resources.
Working with a well-established brand like JGP allows us to attract candidates we may not otherwise reach using other methods - not only applicants from the public/third sectors, but also from a diverse range of other backgrounds, as JGP’s recent rebranding is helping to create broader appeal - this mirrors our own need to increasingly target those from commercial/private backgrounds in order to recruit the best talent. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend JGP’s services.
In the latest in our series of podcasts with leading figures in the UK housing sector, we sat down with Angela Gascoigne. Angela is Chief Executive at SHAL Housing in Somerset and we were thrilled to get the opportunity to talk to her about the work they’re doing for their local communities.
