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. 

Joining our Home Group Repairs Service you will provide Quantity Surveying services to support a key focus area. You’ll deliver a customer focussed repairs and maintenance services, ensuring high levels of performance, productivity, quality, compliance and cost-effective services.

About our team

You’ll be working alongside our fabulous team who are super passionate about delivering first class maintenance services for our customers. You will have the support of a fantastic management team.

Our Maintenance and Contract Manager Matt has over 15 years’ experience in housing and maintenance, and when not looking after his young family, can be found exercising in the gym or doing countryside walks with his wife and children to tire the little ones out!

You will also work closely with colleagues across the wider maintenance team. We are not just a team we’re a ‘work family’.

When you’ll 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!

About you

You’ll have a degree or relevant qualification and experience in quantity surveying and it would be brilliant if you were also a member of RICs. You’ll have a genuine interest in construction, repairs and maintenance, with experience of Building Regulations, systems and materials. You’ll be confident working to specifications, contracts and data.

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, 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!)

Travel

You’ll have the chance to shape your own diary. You’ll likely spend some time on the road, but will predominantly work from our Durham office or from home the rest of the time.
