About us

We’re Abri, a housing association based in the south of England. One of the largest in fact. We've got 35,000 homes and 1,500 colleagues. And if all our 80,000 residents lived in the same place, we’d have a town roughly the size of Guildford.

We’re a passionate bunch. We think we can make a real difference. Homelessness, poverty, inequality, a lack of affordable housing. They’re all linked. They’re issues that affect so many, young and old alike. And we don’t think that’s right. We want to give people the chance to dream big and be who they want to be. Homes are at the heart of everybody’s lives. And we exist to help make good homes, and good lives a reality for everyone.

About you

We’ve all got different backgrounds, strengths and experiences. But we share the same values. It’s these shared values that bring us together as one team.

Our colleagues embrace these every day. Be the difference to our customers and colleagues, always curious and look for better solutions, achieve together by working in partnership with others, own it openly through working with others in an open and honest way, and finally embrace possibility and see changes and challenges as welcomed opportunities.

If you share our values and want to make a real difference in the world, you’re on to a winner and we’d love to hear from you! 

Your new role

We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced and skilled Applications Manager to join our high performing, fast-paced, agile (SCRUM) Digital Development team.

You'll be a key member of the Development team helping to produce and to enhance integrated solutions. No two days will ever be the same, so self-motivated and always keeping up to date with the latest technologies and Microsoft 365 Solutions are essential since you'll be working on exciting projects where your expertise will be important. 

You'll lead and manage the integration and consolidation of our portals, D365 solutions, intranet and SharePoint online document management systems, leading exciting changes and enhancements and developing in-house bespoke solutions, processes and data.

Once we have successfully integrated both our legacy Radian and Yarlington solutions, your next journey will be working towards delivering the businesses transformation digital requirements, to sweat and continually enhance the solutions and user experience for our colleagues and customers whilst continuing to support Business as Usual.

You'll have at least five years’ experience leading IT development teams, excellent communication skills and be passionate about innovation and enhancing systems. It'll be great if you have a proven record of translating business requirements into practical working successful solutions.
Does this sound like you? If so, we'd like to hear from you!


What you can expect from us

We want our colleagues at all levels to be bold, inspiring and not afraid to speak up and be their authentic selves.

Your wellbeing is really important to us, so you can expect a competitive reward package to ensure you and your family are supported at work and at home.

We’ll work with you to help you reach your goals through personal development plans and our in-house People Development team.

Depending on your role you may need to work a set shift pattern, or you may have greater flexibility to choose when and where you work. Either way, we strive to ensure all colleagues have a degree of flexibility to attend life’s important events.

Abri is committed to promoting an inclusive culture. We want our colleagues to bring their individual differences, life experiences and knowledge into the workplace and we welcome their contribution to our amazing company. Everyone is different, everyone is unique.
