We are proud to announce we have become a Member of the Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter, together with Bury Council.

The charter is a voluntary membership and assessment scheme which aims to raise employment standards across Greater Manchester for all organisations of any size, sector or geography.

As a Member of the Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter, we strive for employment excellence in all seven characteristics of good employment and are among employers leading the #GoodEmployment movement in Greater Manchester. As a Member, we are committed to providing work that is secure, flexible and fairly paid, ensuring our employees are developed, well-managed and engaged, with their health and well-being a top priority.

Sharon McCambridge, Chief Executive at Six Town Housing, said:

“Six Town Housing is proud to become a member of the GM Good Employment Charter. Ensuring equal chances in life for everyone in our communities is integral to everything we do and becoming a member is a key enabler in ensuring we continue to do just that.

“Our membership will help us continue to grow and find more ways to help the tenants of Bury recover from the pandemic. I’m proud of all our employees who work hard to deliver great services, improving the quality of people’s homes and the neighbourhood.”

Ian MacArthur, Director of The Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter, said:

“It’s an absolute pleasure to welcome Six Town Housing and Bury Council to the Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter. These are employers that have shown themselves as exemplars for good employment practice across the seven characteristics of the charter.

“Together these employers offer good employment for hundreds of employees. Together they join the growing band of employers across Greater Manchester that are making employment better.”


As Members, we continue to work with other employers helping them to improve good employment practice and also learn new ways of working, continually improving.
