Delivering on our customer promise. Thatâs when it hits home
At Home Group itâs critical we continue to deliver services for our customers during the COVID-19 outbreak, and our awesome colleagues are at the very heart of making that happen. 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 weâll engage with you digitally where possible.
Itâs a really exciting time to join Home Group as we build more homes, independence and aspirations â 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.
Youâll be managing and documenting contractual specifications for the Maintenance function nationally. Youâll lead the requirements gathering process, including remodelling/modernising existing specifications when contracts are due for renewal, and translating these into a clear specification for contractors to work within.
When you join, youâll discover that itâs our brilliant people and culture that make a difference. We are No. 10 in the UKâs 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
Youâll 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 will be working for David who recently joined Home Group and has over 30 yearsâ experience in house construction and maintenance. When not cycling heâs either up a mountain in the lakes or practicing and teaching various forms of meditation.
When youâll work
Itâs the teamâs unwritten rule that you attend the important appointments in life, be it your childâs school play, your partnerâs 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!
Youâll be a true self starter, with indepth knowledge and understanding of contractual workings and conditions enabling the appropriate controls to be implemented to ensure success.
Youâll have an understanding of contract preparation including standard and bespoke forms of contract and implementation and management of these contracts. You will support and advise colleagues on contractual matters, with strong skills to lead contractual, commercial and technical negotiations to clear outcome.
Here at Home Group we have invested heavily in our future and use current and up to date equipment. Youâll 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!)
