ARK Housing Association is a not-for-profit organisation. We have a clear vision and mission that drive everything we do, and our values are rooted in civil and human rights.

Founded in 1977 by a group of Edinburgh parishioners to help a member of their congregation, we now manage over 400 properties across 13 Scottish Local Authorities, and employ over 1000 staff.

"We support people to live good lives, at home and in their community."

Some people require assistance to lead the life of their choice. For over thirty years we have provided community-based care, support and housing for people with learning difficulties and others with complex and enduring needs. We also provide general needs housing.

We believe everyone should have the opportunity to lead a happy, healthy and safe life.

We offer:

  • A wide range of development opportunities, including comprehensive induction, a range of specialist training programs, e-Learning and SVQ assessors who will support you to achieve an industry specific, accredited qualification.
  • Benefits which includes up to 36 days paid holiday per year pro rata and 3.4% employer pension contribution.
  • A range of working hours designed to offer you a good work-life balance.
  • ARK will fully fund your PVG registration and also your initial registration with the SSSC.
