The GEM programme
The GEM programme provides graduate level roles for passionate, values-driven individuals around the UK. This 12-month programme delivers high quality management and leadership training, combined with a paid work based role. Each GEM is also given one-to-one mentor support within the workplace and has access to pastoral and career support from the GEM Programme team. The GEM programme is accredited by CIH, with GEMs studying towards a Level 4 Certificate in Housing.
GEM first launched in 2009 in West Yorkshire and has now expanded to involve a range of housing associations in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. We also successfully launched an international pilot in Canada which gives GEMs access to an international network of young housing professionals.
GEM applications are now closed for 2017.
