We recognise the importance of continuing to develop our products and services to meet the changing needs of our customers and empower our colleagues to support customers in realising their aspirations.

We’re looking to recruit people who share our passion in making a difference to the lives of our customers and our local communities. In return we will invest in you to help develop your career in a great environment that offers flexibility, collaboration and excellent rewards and benefits.

We live by a set of shared values that underpin our open and honest working culture but also demonstrates our commitment to our customers, our stakeholders and our colleagues.

Your new role

Ensuring our customer’s wellbeing and safety is at the heart of everything we do. It’s vital to us that we have rigorous processes in place to give peace of mind to ourselves and our customers that their homes are safe and remain compliant with all new legislative requirements and best practice guidelines. To enable us to do this and to become a recognised industry leader in customer safety, we’re looking for an Asbestos Manager to join us on a permanent, full-time basis

You will take full ownership of the Asbestos management plan across the Group’s entire geography, ensuring our strategy is continuously reviewed, optimised and compliant with all statutory regulations and best practice.

Working alongside the Health & Safety team, you will lead on investigating Asbestos incidents and ensuring our Asbestos register is up to date, accurate and accessible to all staff and contractors.

A detailed knowledge of Asbestos management and the legislative requirements around it will be essential as a key part of this role will be to provide technical advice to a wide range of colleagues and service providers, ensuring both their understanding and compliance.  A strong understanding of other health and safety aspects relating to residential properties will also be vital to guarantee our residents are secure in their homes and will remain so through regular, effective strategy reviews.

This is a fantastic opportunity to make a huge difference to the lives of our customers, giving peace of mind to tens of thousands of our residents across the South of England.  If you want to join an enthusiastic, innovative team and organisation and are as committed to giving people a safe and secure home to live in as we are, we would love for you to hear from you!
