We are looking for a brilliant Maintenance Manager to join our newly shaped Maintenance team. You will drive 100% compliance whilst managing the maintenance performance in your allocated area. You will push continuous improvement and work collaboratively to identify improvements and solutions.

It’s a really exciting time to join Home Group.  We’re currently undergoing a significant period of growth and change that will enable us to build more homes, independence and aspirations – the vision that underpins our five-year strategy. Our ambition to be market leaders in New Models of Care, build 10,000 new homes and significantly increase our digital capability is in the hands of our brilliant people.  We’re delivering a new end to end customer experience to support an enhanced customer offer and digital ways of working.

As one of our Maintenance Managers you’ll be responsible for the operational performance and delivery of regional works and contractor performance and you’ll be responsible for the management of a team of Maintenance Surveyors.

You’ll be working alongside our brilliant Lead Contract Manager, Ian Thompson and your team will work alongside our Contract Management team and report into our regional Head of Maintenance, Louise Barkes.

We are committed to completing our digital journey within the next 5 years which will see us working really effectively with workforce management, our repair requests being completed by self-serve 80% of the time and seeing a real reduction in reactive maintenance through better planning.  We’ll need you to have brilliant experience in commercial management and construction, ideally from the housing sector with a chartered membership from CIOB or RICS.  You’ll be an experienced people manager with the proven ability to monitor, manage and effectively challenge performance ensuring delivery excellence. Overall you’ll deliver great win-win outcomes for Home Group and our customers.
