About Haumaru Housing

Haumaru Housing LP was established in 2017 by The Selwyn Foundation in partnership with Auckland Council primarily for the continued quality management of Auckland Council’s older persons housing stock, but with the wider focus of developing communities of affordable rental housing for older people with limited resources and fixed incomes.

More than simply providing housing, the partnership is also about securing the futures of older people and enhancing their wellbeing.

The portfolio currently consists of 1,452 rentals across 63 villages across Auckland. Additional partnership opportunities will continue to be explored to meet New Zealand’s growing needs.

This position represents an opportunity for Directors to advance the growth of a high performing housing provider, and to work passionately in a team with other Directors and Chief Executive.
