About our team

You?ll be working as part of our fabulous team who are super passionate about delivering a first-class maintenance solution to our customers. Our Head of Maintenance, Louise, has worked here at Home Group almost 18 years now, having worked in the housing environment for over 30 years. Outside of work Louise enjoys spending time with her family and the new puppy! Along with exploring with her group of best mates, travelling and experiencing new things!

You?ll be working alongside our fabulous team who are super passionate about making sure that our customers' homes are repaired and maintained to a high standard and that when people leave our homes, they are prepared to a great standard for our new customers. To us were not just a team we?re a ?work family?. There are 12 of us in the team all together and we don?t just love to support our customers, we?re there for each other too!

The team are spread the length and breadth of England with managers in the North East, Cumbria, Yorkshire, Midlands, South West and South East. A key role for you will be working for Louise and across the whole team planning and providing administrative support for our key contractor meetings across England. These are really important meetings that need a keen eye for minute taking and great organisational skills. 

When you?ll work

It?s the team?s unwritten rule that you attend the important appointments in life, be it your child?s school play, your partner?s graduation, or to get your new fridge delivered. You can elect to fit these around your working day or use your flexi to take the time off. Our focus is on getting the job done, not your working hours!

About you

You?ll be the eyes and ears of our customers with a passionate can-do approach in a fast-paced environment. You?ll have a keen eye for detail, be a curious investigator and an energised collaborator. You?ll be organised, prioritise work to meet deadlines and handle a number of tasks simultaneously.

Here at Home Group we have invested heavily in our future and use current and up to date equipment. You?ll be issued with the latest kit, which could include a Surface Pro and mobile. So it's really important to us that you are technologically savvy (or at the very least not a technophobe!)
