At Kindling Housing Coop in Oxford, we are looking for someone to join us from November 2018 onwards. We are looking for long term members, looking to stay for a minimum of  one year, ideally longer.


We founded Kindling in 2014 because we were fed up with the housing situation in Oxford and were keen to prove that it is still possible to start new housing cooperatives (even in the least affordable cities in the country!) For more info on our coop:
