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’ll be 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, having worked in various grounds   maintenance roles for over 15 years.

You’ll be part of a team of 6 which was 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 within our communities in Scarborough, Whitby and regular travel around North East Yorkshire. 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).

About you 

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.

During Covid

We’re continuing to deliver services for our customers during the   COVID-19 pandemic, and our brilliant colleagues are at the very heart of   making that happen. We’re doing things a little differently at the   moment, so to keep everyone safe, we’ll engage with you digitally where   possible. Check out our awesome video to find out more on how   our   colleagues   have   felt   supported   here   during   the   outbreak.

Be yourself at Home

Home Group is committed to tackling prejudice and discrimination, not   just for our customers, but for our colleagues too! We’re super proud of   our internal Diversity Networks and allies (Multicultural, LGBTQIA+ and   Disability) which support colleagues from different backgrounds to be   their true selves. We recognise and celebrate our differences, together   we make Home Group a great place to work!
