Delivering on our Customer Promise – that’s when it hits home

We have a fabulous opportunity for you to join our brand-new Repairs and Maintenance team. You’ll be responsible for carrying out high quality, right first-time maintenance and installation works across responsive and void workstreams.

All jobs will be undertaken with a ‘right first time’ culture. You will have a multi skilled, whole job repair approach which delivers high level of individual and team performance. You’ll deliver recognised industry standards for compliance, quality and productivity.

What makes us No.7 in the UK’s Best Super Large Great Places to Work, 4th Best Place in the UK for Great Places for Women to Work, 18th in the Stonewall Top 100 and Investors in People Platinum (!!) Standard….! It’s our brilliant people and culture!

About our team
You’ll be working alongside our fabulous team who are super passionate about delivering a customer focussed repairs and maintenance service to deliver on our Customer Promise. You’ll work for one of our Repairs and Maintenance Supervisors (we’re recruiting for these roles too) and Chris, our Repairs and Maintenance Manager.

Where you’ll work
You’ll initially work across the County Durham, Washington and Sunderland area. The great news is that you will have the flexibility of working either from home or in one of our local offices (when we go back to office working) and we’ll give you the technology and kit to make that easy.

Working hours
In order to meet the needs of our customers, we need to be flexible. This means you’ll work 5 days per week depending on the need of the business. You may also be asked to take part in our out of hours service. As we’re asking you to be flexible for us, we aim to give you the time you need to spend time doing the things that matter to you!

About you
As a joiner, you’ll have an NVQ level 3 or equivalent qualification in joinery or carpentry.

You’ll have experience of undertaking all aspects of joinery work in a maintenance environment. With a flexible approach and ability to take ownership, you can use your own judgement and initiative. You will also have experience in other building trade areas (multi skilled) with relevant training and experience.

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 important to us that you are technologically savvy (or at the very least not a technophobe!)

When you join, you’ll need to have a valid Standard Check under the Disclosure and Barring Service. The great news is that we will pay for that to be done if you don’t have a transferrable one.

To apply
Don’t delay applying for this brilliant job, as we may close it early if we get lots of applications! Just upload your CV and if you have one, your covering letter (this will help us learn more about you!). If you need them, we’ve also got some great templates to help you.

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.

We recognise and celebrate our differences, together we make Home Group a great place to work!
