We’re Abri, a housing association based in the south of England. One of the largest in fact. We've got 35,000 homes and 1,400 colleagues. And if all our 80,000 residents lived in the same place, we’d have a town roughly the size of Guildford.
We’re a passionate bunch. We think we can make a real difference. Homelessness, poverty, inequality, a lack of affordable housing. They’re all linked. They’re issues that affect so many, young and old alike. And we don’t think that’s right. We want to give people the chance to dream big and be who they want to be. Homes are at the heart of everybody’s lives. And we exist to help make good homes, and good lives a reality for everyone.
We’ve all got different backgrounds, strengths and experiences. But we share the same values. It’s these shared values that bring us together as one team.
Our colleagues embrace these every day. Be the difference to our customers and colleagues, always curious and look for better solutions, achieve together by working in partnership with others, own it openly through working with others in an open and honest way, and finally embrace possibility and see changes and challenges as welcomed opportunities.
If you share our values and want to make a real difference in the world, you’re on to a winner and we’d love to hear from you!
Your new role
Ensuring our customer’s wellbeing and safety is at the heart of everything we do. It’s vital to us that we have rigorous processes in place to give peace of mind to ourselves and our customers that their homes are safe and remain compliant with all new legislative requirements and best practice guidelines. To enable us to do this and to become a recognised industry leader in customer safety, we’re looking for an Asbestos Manager to join us on a permanent, full-time basis
You will take full ownership of the Asbestos management plan across the Group’s entire geography, ensuring our strategy is continuously reviewed, optimised and compliant with all statutory regulations and best practice.
Working alongside the Health & Safety team, you will lead on investigating Asbestos incidents and ensuring our Asbestos register is up to date, accurate and accessible to all staff and contractors.
A detailed knowledge of Asbestos management and the legislative requirements around it will be essential as a key part of this role will be to provide technical advice to a wide range of colleagues and service providers, ensuring both their understanding and compliance. A strong understanding of other health and safety aspects relating to residential properties will also be vital to guarantee our residents are secure in their homes and will remain so through regular, effective strategy reviews.
This is a fantastic opportunity to make a huge difference to the lives of our customers, giving peace of mind to tens of thousands of our residents across the South of England.
If you want to join an enthusiastic, innovative team and organisation and are as committed to giving people a safe and secure home to live in as we are, we would love for you to hear from you!
