The number one housing management system software supplier in the UK has hired six members of staff bolstered by a record year of client wins.

Katie, 29, joins the team as a project manager having experienced MIS-AMS client-side for nine years before joining the team herself.

Katie, formerly of Cottsway Housing Association, has not only gained vast experience of ActiveH, she has wide knowledge of the housing sector and is proficient in IT.

She said: “Having worked on the ActiveH system for around nine years, I was already a fan! Having been on the receiving end of MIS-AMS’s customer service and technology, I knew it was a team that went above the norm and delivered the very best customer service as well as having such a family feel – which I am now very pleased to be a part of.”

Jonathan has actually rejoined the team and has been hired as the tech lead for ActiveH web and brings an array of experience within web development, support and security of platforms.

Jonathan chatted about why he returned to the company, “Having worked here for five years previously, when this role came up it was too good an opportunity to miss. It feels like I never left – and I mean that in a very good way. I have been working with the team on the usability of ActiveH web, to ensure we deliver the benefit and value to our customers.”

Ben joins as a junior support developer evolving his career on a student placement. Ben wanted to expand on his skills to date and progress his career within a professional software company.

He commented: “I was so very pleased to get this opportunity. I have already broadened my skills in coding since I arrived, something I am really passionate about. Each week I am getting more confident and can’t wait to see what I know by the end of my placement.”

Finally, Eadaoin, Ian and Lynda have joined in Junior Project Manager, Systems Implementer and Financial Accountant roles respectively.

Eadaoin said: “I wanted to join a company that was growing and evolving and MIS-AMS are doing just that. There is persistent growth and I can see my long-term career here.”

Lynda added: “I think I speak for all the newbies, thank you for making us feel so welcome.”

MIS-AMS has had a fast-paced year celebrating many new client wins including Abbeyfield Southern Oaks, Harrogate Housing Association and Tai Ceredigion Cyf.

Managing Director of MIS-AMS, Chris McLaughlin, said: "This past year has been fantastic and has brought with it many challenges and rewarding successes. 

"The most notable being the success of our ever-growing new business team and hitting above and beyond our targets of new client wins. This latest round of recruitment gives us the potential to grow further and develop our software services way into 2020.”
