Why work for us?

Sanctuary Housing is one of the UK’s leading social landlords, providing around 70,000 homes across England. We give our residents good quality, affordable homes in communities that they can be proud of. As part of a not-for-profit organisation, we reinvest any surplus we make back into the local communities we serve.

We have an excellent opportunity for a Scheme Manager to join our well established Housing for Older People Scheme in Cullompton. You will be part of a small team, primarily working independently, with a focus on making a real difference to the lives our residents. You will be responsible for delivering a quality housing management service together with signposting to other services so that residents can maintain their well-being and independence. Full support and training will be provided and although challenging, the role is equally rewarding.  If you are highly motivated, compassionate and enjoy working with people, this could be the role for you. 

The role of Scheme Manager will include:

  • Assisting residents with queries regarding welfare benefits and rent accounts
  • Liaising with external agencies such as Social Workers
  • Undertaking compliance checks and scheme inspections
  • Identifying potential repairs and/or faults in the scheme, reporting these and ensuring they are monitored
  • Attending meetings with the residents
  • Supporting residents by providing information to promote independence

Skills and experiences:

  • Knowledge of welfare benefits and rent accounts
  • Excellent interpersonal and communicative skills
  • Ability to work on own initiative and with fast changing requirements
  • Experience of working with older people in a support capacity
  • Experience of using Microsoft Office (Word, Excel and Outlook), or similar
  • Occasional travel between remote schemes will be required; therefore it is essential that candidates hold a full, UK driving licence and have access to a vehicle
