Outside of work Paul enjoys a hectic social life and when not cooking is planning his next trip with his wife Victoria!
You will have the support of a fantastic management team; you’ll be working for our Maintenance and Contract Manager David.  David has worked for Home Group for 5 years having previously worked in other compliance-based roles.  You will work as part of a local team and we don’t just love to support our customers, we’re there for each other too!

Where you will work
You will have specific responsibility for our properties within our South region and will cover Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk and surrounding areas.
The great news is that you will have the flexibility of working either from home or in one of our local offices and we’ll give you the technology and kit to make that easy.

You’ll be RICS or CIOB accredited with a Building Surveying degree or similar qualification. You will have worked in a surveyor role or similar technical property maintenance team with knowledge of building construction, repairs and safety.
With experience, knowledge and a working awareness of surveying, specifying and managing fire risk works from remedial repairs, maintenance and improvement works through to more complex works. You’ll have experience of working with fire door replacements, compartmentation upgrades, fire alarm and emergency lighting systems and associated active and passive fire precautions.
Due to the nature of the role you will be required to drive and have access to your own vehicle which you will be able to claim your business miles back on.
