Delivering on our customer promise. That’s when it hits home
It’s an exciting time to join Home Group as we build more homes, independence and aspirations – the vision that underpins our five-year strategy. Our commitment to deliver on our customer promise, build the right homes in the right places and be market leaders in New Models of Care, is in the hands of our brilliant people.
You will be working as an integral member of our maintenance team and will provide soft and hard landscaping, estate, garden maintenance and arboriculture services to all customers.
About our team
You’ll be working as part of our fabulous Yorkshire Landscape team who are passionate about delivering a first-class maintenance solution to our customers. Our national grounds maintenance manager Richard has worked here at Home Group for almost 2 years now, having worked in various grounds maintenance roles for over 15 years.
You’ll be part of a team of 6, newly formed last year, and will work for our Landscape Garden Team Leader Stewart who has worked in the team for over 12 years.
Where you will work
You’ll work across Yorkshire with regular travel; our estates are dispersed around the region however you will have specific accountability for an estate. The great news is that you will have the flexibility of being based from home (instead of travelling to a depot) and we’ll give you all the kit needed to make that easy, including a vehicle (for work use).
You’ll have experience in soft landscaping and grounds maintenance, holding a City and Guilds Part 1 or NVQ Level 1 Landscaping or Horticultural qualification or equivalent. You’ll have a good understanding of health and safety and be able to use, service and maintain gardening machinery.
You’ll be very reliable, comfortable managing your own time and comfortable working both on your own and as part of a team. You’ll be focussed on delivering grounds maintenance and gardening to a high standard with real eye for detail and quality. You’ll be working with a hive of activity going on around you and you will be working within our customer communities.
