We’re a very different type of company and one that people love being a part of.
At Coastal we’re a team in the truest sense of the word. We value relationships highly, so we invest in them daily. As a result, our workplace culture is open, trusting and respectful. It’s also safe, which we think is pretty critical to encouraging new ideas and approaches.
We employ almost 300 people across south west Wales and we trust every single one of them to know, and do, their work in the way that gets the best results for residents, the local community and the planet.
If this sounds like something you’d like to be part of, come join #TeamCoastal.

Coastal is part of a dynamic and ambitious social housing sector in Wales with fantastic career opportunities.
The ‘This is Housing’ campaign has been created to tell the story about what it’s like to work in the sector, and the breadth of roles available
At ‘‘This is Housing you can find out what the careers are really like from the people who work in housing, learn what you need to get into the career you want and the best ways to apply for jobs in social housing, and find out about what housing associations do and where they are based.
Chances are you won’t have worked anywhere quite like Coastal before. We don’t impose rules on our people, instead everything from the culture to the office environment is designed to give people choices, work how they want, play to their own strengths.
Our teams are encouraged to experiment and innovate in order to find new ways of creating value for people, communities and places. And they do this really, really well.
At Coastal we think and act a bit differently. You can absolutely see and feel this but it can be kind of hard to put into words.
It’s a balance between the belief that anything’s possible and the discipline of remaining constructive, relevant and valuable throughout everything we do. Our approach doesn’t conveniently fit into an acronym or under a set of buzzwords. Instead we call it The Coastal Way and you can read more about it here.
*This is an actual quote about our workplace culture from an external company that had been working with us quite intensively for a few days. It wasn’t Freddie Mercury but it’s possible he’d have said something similar. 🙂
We’re not making that up because it sounds good. 91% of our people would recommend Coastal to others as a great place to work. (Feb 2020)
Over 51% of our team have been with us for 5 years or more. We think that says a lot about our people feeling valued, respected and able to progress within the company as well as toward their own development goals.
