You will also be expected to manage insurance claims related to properties, limit risk to the organisation through working knowledge of legislation risk management and specify, authorise and manage works to completion, carrying out pre and post inspections.

The successful candidate will be a strong team player who puts customers first, will be qualified to a HNC standard (or equivalent) as a minimum and will have a positive 'can do' attitude. You will be highly organised with a passion for service excellence and continuous improvement and will be a strong communicator who is confident when liaising with people at all levels. Being capable of working to deadlines is essential as is having knowledge of housing maintenance, repair specifications, diagnosing defects and remedial works. You will ideally also have strong knowledge of social housing management and of housing / property management systems (Northgate or similar). You must have a valid driving licence and daily access to a car for business use.

you can expect a competitive salary, generous holiday entitlement, pension scheme and employee discount scheme. As a responsible employer we take the health and wellbeing of our colleagues seriously, and are currently implementing a comprehensive health and wellbeing programme.
