We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Senior Quantity Surveyor to join our expanding and busy team of professionals

Who we are....

Cross Keys Homes is a commercial business with a social heart. We're dedicated to providing high-quality, affordable housing in prosperous communities.

We're the largest social housing landlord in Peterborough, managing more than 11,000 properties and housing around 14% of the city's population.

We're more than just a landlord. We want to make neighbourhoods happy and vibrant places for people to live. We do that by investing in homes, green spaces and leisure facilities, and by supporting local people through training, education and employment.
