We own and manage over 12,000 homes in central, south and east Manchester. We have one purpose: to provide good quality homes, great services, and real opportunities for our customers and communities. Our role as a trusted Registered Provider of Social Housing goes well beyond putting people in safe and secure homes. That’s not to say it’s not one our key priorities, it’s simply one of the many things we do to help our customers live happy and fulfilled lives. We put people at the heart of everything we do. We’re constantly evolving as a business to ensure we’re supporting our customers and communities. We focus on improving our communities by offering a range of services, including employment opportunities, building new developments, and ensuring our customers have safe homes to live in.
In accordance with the aims of our Equality and Diversity strategy and organisational commitment to address the employment of underrepresented groups, One Manchester is operating 'the Rooney Rule'. This means that we aim to interview at least one ethnically diverse candidate for all roles. We will also interview at least one female candidate for all our roles within our trades and facilities teams where we experience an under representation.
One Manchester strives for equality, diversity and inclusion in all that we do. We positively encourage applications for employment from eligible candidates regardless of sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, religion or belief, marital status, or pregnancy and maternity.
We are transitioning to a culture where agile working will be a feature of many of our roles. We also try to support and promote a culture of flexible working where possible and practical. If you are interested in a role but require flexibility or part time hours please give us a call and we can let you know if this can be considered for a particular role.
