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
We're recruiting for three fully qualified Electricians to join our Electrical Testing team on a permanent basis. Our team are growing and we're very passionate in delivering a five yearly testing programme. You'll have achieved the C&G 2394-01 Level 3 award in initial verification and 2395-01 Level 3 award in periodic inspection (or equivalent).
You'll be responsible for carrying out electrical inspections and testing in support of our testing programme and will also be required to carry out C1 and C2 works to ensure the property is left in a safe condition. You'll ensure all works are completed in line with agreed specifications and current NICEIC standards, recording certification using Total Mobile software.
Customers are at the heart of everything we do - it's important that you'll provide a high quality, customer focused service, and using your experience to carry out occupied electrical inspection and testing and make sure our customers' safety come first.
Since you'll meet different customers, your communications skills must be great and you have an achievement-based approach to your work and will be self-motivated. You'll travel anywhere within the geographical area of operation of the Group for which a company vehicle will be provided.
If you feel you have the experience, skills and attitude, we want to hear from you.

Abri is committed to promoting an inclusive culture. We want our colleagues to bring their individual differences, life experiences and knowledge into the workplace and we welcome their contribution to our amazing company. Everyone is different, everyone is unique.
