Job Description

We're looking for a skilled trades person experienced in carpentry, plumbing, plastering and/or tiling to join our trades team in south Birmingham and Warwickshire on a permanent basis. The role will require you to cover Daventry, Northampton, Leamington Spa and the surrounding areas, so you must live in a suitable location to effectively cover that area of work. This is initially a fixed-term contract for a period of 12 months.

As a vital member of the team you will take pride in the repairs and maintenance of our domestic properties, and be able to demonstrate a wide range of trade skills in addition to a primary trade.

We want someone who:

  • Is a genuine all-rounder, with strong practical skills and first-hand knowledge of plumbing, carpentry and plastering trades
  • Has plenty of flexibility, as well as a proven ability to diagnose, undertake and complete repairs to high levels of quality and customer satisfaction
  • Is seen as a people person with excellent customer service skills
  • Feels comfortable working within a social housing environment
  • Has an outstanding work ethic and the drive to complete work to an excellent standard without close supervision.

You’ll need to have a full, clean driving licence, willing to work 40 hours per week and be prepared to join an on-call rota which is paid at a set £500 per on-call week; during this week you would work to adjusted hours on a rota basis.

We can offer you:

  • A job purpose vehicle + fuel
  • A pension with life assurance
  • Generous holidays starting at 27 days every year + additional days for bank holidays
  • £500 per year to spend on a range of flexible benefits such as gym membership and dental care.

Closing date for applications is Monday 2nd September.

We’ve set aside a joint investment of £1.5b as we plan to build 14,000 new homes over the next decade.
