Role Category - the way you'll work:

This role is categorised as an operative role.  This means that you are likely to move around from site-to-site or property-to property more often, depending on the work needed to be done. You won’t necessarily have a permanent work base as you’ll probably be able to travel from home to your site. You’ll be advised about your work location where needed.

The Role & Person:

Do you enjoy working outdoors and have an interest in Arboriculture? If so an exciting opportunity has arisen to join our Estate Services Team as an Arborist Apprentice.

Are you safety orientated in the way you approach work and would you love to work as part of a positive team to help us maintain Thirteens tree stock and the environment?

Would you like to continuously develop within your career and improve your skill set? Can you can work at heights and outdoors in all weathers and do you have the physical ability to undertake all types of chainsaw work both on the ground and at height?

You will work with our experienced in-house Arborist team and learn first hand all there is to know about how they look after all of the trees in Thirteens ownership. This is a two year apprenticeship that will include completing an industry recognised qualification. 

The future is exciting, and we only want the best to be part of it.

At Thirteen we're about homes and so much more.....

At Thirteen, we’re more than just a landlord. We believe everyone is an individual. That’s why we don’t just provide properties; we offer a home to suit each person’s needs.

And we’re not just about somewhere to live; our range of extra services means we can give people a helping hand specifically tailored to them if they need it.

Our strength, capacity and ambition to deliver what our customers need means we can change things for the better.

We’re the largest housing association in the North East and among the biggest 25 nationally.  Today we own and manage some 34,000 properties in the North East region, 30,000 of them in the Tees Valley. Thirteen is still an organisation that’s local at its heart - and although our work is largely in the Tees Valley, we welcome applications from further afield because our ways of working mean we can often be flexible about where our colleagues are based.

Our skilled colleagues and board directors work tirelessly to support 70,000 tenants and customers, bringing a breadth of experience and a can-do attitude to ensure a high-quality customer experience.  We welcome applications form people of all backgrounds to join our committed team.

So come and be part of making a difference. Great days for everyone are made at Thirteen.

Are you up for the challenge of bringing our vision to life and having great days at work?
