At Stockport Homes Group our mission is to be one team transforming lives. We pride ourselves in being more than just a housing provider and have a proven track record of innovation, delivering excellent services at optimum financial efficiency.

We have recently established a group structure and with a long term Management Agreement with the Council and a strong development programme we see a great future for our staff and customers.

Joining us as the Head of Maintenance and Commercial Services, you will support the Director and work collaboratively with the Head of Investment to deliver high quality repairs, maintenance and stock investment works.

Through Stockport Homes Group’s successful trading company, Threesixty, you will utilise your astute business approach to win and deliver external commercial maintenance contracts to help the company meet its wider objectives; exploiting your excellent people skills to develop engaged staff who support one another in all they do.

Continually seeking out best practice and innovation and embedding this into services ensuring that they are high quality, sector leading and at optimum cost, you must ensure that all services are delivered and provided in compliance with SHG’s financial and procurement rules; challenging the status quo by being innovative and seeking opportunities for further partnerships.

With a strong track record of delivering excellence and an understanding of the repairs and maintenance industry both in the public and private sector, candidates should demonstrate effective leadership skills and the ability to think laterally in order to problem solve successfully.

Capable of operating effectively in the commercial repairs world and understanding how external contractors compete for and win works, you should have an eye for figures and be able to handle complex financial analysis in order to make sound decisions and write concise business plans for services within management.
