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 will be working as an integral member of our Safety and Compliance team and will provide technical advice to improve the quality standards of our maintenance service. You’ll be delivering a responsive, high quality and caring maintenance service to our customers using customer insight to maximise the customer experience.
When you join, you’ll discover that it’s our brilliant people and culture that make a difference. We are 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 hold Investors in People Platinum Standard!
You will have the ability to manage, control budgets and expenditure with effective time management skills and be able to prioritise workload to meet deadlines. You will have the ability to work unsupervised covering a large geographical area.
Previous experience of contract management/working with external partners and a relevant technical qualification (or working towards) would be advantageous in this role.
Ideally you’ll have knowledge in safety and compliance but we would specifically welcome past working experience in Gas Safety and Lift servicing and maintenance and water hygiene and asbestos management.
Home Group play a big part in tackling prejudice and discrimination, not just for our customers, but colleagues too! You can be yourself here, because we value everything that makes you unique. So, whatever your age, race, sexuality, disability, religion, or gender identity, we recognise and celebrate our differences. Together we make Home Group a great place to work!
About our team
You’ll be working alongside our fabulous team who are super passionate about delivering a safe place to live for all our customers. This is through our works in gas and electrical servicing, lift maintenance and water hygiene to name just a few.
We are a relatively new team in the South, 16 staff (when all recruited) spread over a wide area. To us were not just a team we’re a ‘work family’. Led by 2 Managers, Kylie and David who have a wealth of knowledge and experience between them. There are currently 10 of us in the team and we don’t just love to support our customers, we’re there for each other too! We are a new team so it’s even more of an exciting time to start as we form strong working relationships.
When and where you will 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!
You’ll work across our South region, Cornwall across to Norfolk and you will have specific responsibility for our properties/estates and buildings within your office base area. Some travel will be required but we work as a team with colleagues looking after the properties closest to them. The great news is that you will have the flexibility of working either from home or in one of our local offices, manage your own diary and we’ll give you the technology and kit to make that easy.
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.
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!)
