Delivering on our customer promise. That’s when it hits home

We need Brilliant People like you to join us (and not just during this challenging time). We are doing things a little differently at the moment, so to keep you, our customers and ourselves safe we’ll engage with you digitally where possible.
It’s a really 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.
Working within one of our four maintenance work streams, you’ll provide predictable, reliable and consistent outcomes to all Home Group customers, colleagues and stakeholders in the delivery of your work. You’ll have day to day accountability for quality control on any planned maintenance works, providing in house technical support, problem solving and advice on specifications and standards to be achieved.
When you join, you’ll discover that it’s our brilliant people and culture that make a difference. We are No. 10 in the UK’s Best Super Large Great Places to Work, 5th Best Place in the UK for Great Places for Women to Work, 18th in the Stonewall Top 100 and hold Investors in People Gold Standard!
About our team
You’ll be working as part of our fabulous team who are super passionate about delivering a first-class maintenance solution to our customers. Our director Paul has worked here at Home Group almost 3 years now, having worked in contact centres and maintenance environments for the past 14 years. Outside of work Paul enjoys a hectic social life and when not cooking is planning his next trip with his wife Victoria!
You could be working from our Head office in Gosforth for our new Head of Design and Performance, David. David loves the great outdoors and being out on his mountain bike. He also teaches and practices meditation. Alternatively, you could be working in Durham for Paul Graham, our Maintenance and Contract Manager. Paul has worked from Home Group for 6 years and he has a passion for travelling and exploring new places and is a budding cook in his spare time!
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!
You’ll be RICS or CIOB accredited with a Building Surveying degree or similar qualification. You’ll have up to date knowledge of building construction, repairs and safety which you can speak about and implement with confidence to your stakeholders.
You’ll have a commercial mind-set, being curious and confident to challenge spend and quality of works, keeping projects and programmes of work to be delivered on time and within budget
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!)
