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

Here at Abri, we’re determined to do our part in tackling the housing crisis by building at least 1,000 homes a year by 2025 and to support our ambitious targets, we’re looking for a Project Manager to take ownership of a portfolio of development projects from end-to-end.

We're proudly an agile organisation this role could be based out of our Eastleigh. Yeovil or Windsor offices, whichever suits you best.

​​​​​​​You’ll play a key role in our Development team by compiling project briefs, setting up internal and external project teams and procuring and negotiating building works contracts to support successful delivery.

With a keen eye for detail and a strong commercial awareness, you’ll take the initiative and identify opportunities to maximise the value of these schemes while ensuring they remain continuously viable.  Not only must our new homes be completed to the highest of standards, they have to be delivered on time and within budget so excellent stakeholder management skills and the ability to ensure we always meet or exceed on agreed timescales, budget and customer expectations will be essential.

You’ll be working with a range of stakeholders both internal and external including local authorities, Homes England and our development partners so being able to quickly build strong working relationships with a range of stakeholders is a must.
We have ambitious goals here, but through your decisiveness, persuasiveness and the ability to find creative solutions, you’ll help deliver on exciting corporate strategy and make a huge impact at Abri that won’t go unnoticed.

This is an excellent opportunity to join a team as ambitious, dynamic and committed as you are so if this is the challenge you’ve been looking for, we’d love 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. 

Be yourself

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.
