Joining the newly formed Community Resilience Team, you will work with our communities and our Area Managers to build community resilience and deal with community-based issues. You’ll be comfortable working alone at home and out in the community. You will also need to be customer focused and be able to find resolutions that increase residents’ wellbeing and community cohesion. You will be providing advice to both residents and colleagues so an ability to communicate complex messages is a must!
