During the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been focussing on essential and emergency works only to ensure the safety of both our colleagues and customers. As we look to move forward, and as part of our recovery programme, our Commercial services team are looking to increase our staffing capacity on a fixed term basis to enable us to complete the backlog of non-emergency responsive repairs with effect from September 2020. We are therefore looking to recruit Electricians on a fixed term contract to support with this project.
Why work with us?
It's an exciting time to join our organisation. In November 2019, Radian Group and Yarlington Housing Group announced a new partnership which now sees us serve 79,000 customers across the south from Devon to Windsor.
Our new organisation has a portfolio of over 38,000 homes, supported by over 1,350 colleagues. Together, we're committed to investing in local communities to make them stronger whilst helping to provide homes to those that really need them. We recognise the importance of continuing to develop our products and services to meet the changing needs of our customers and empower our colleagues to support customers in realising their aspirations.
We're looking to recruit people who share our passion in making a difference to the lives of our customers and our local communities. In return we will invest in you to help develop your career in a great environment that offers flexibility, collaboration and excellent rewards and benefits.
We live by a set of shared values that underpin our open and honest working culture but also demonstrates our commitment to our customers, our stakeholders and our colleagues.
So if we're what you're looking for, start your next chapter with us...
