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 1,500 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 a Hub Supervisor on a fixed-term contract for up to 12 months to work in South Somerset, but with an office base at our Yeovil site.
Are you, outgoing, organised and dedicated with great communication skills?
Are you comfortable wearing multiple hats in order to deliver a wide range of services to our customer, enabling them to remain as independent as possible?
You will provide the housing management functions which will include Health & Safety checks, monitoring fire safety, ensuring properties remain compliant with H&S requirements, reporting repairs and monitoring external contractors.
You'll also need to be comfortable hosting resident meetings, planning and delivering social activities and promoting the scheme and services locally. You will need to liaise with third party agencies, calling on support when our customers need that little bit of extra support in order to maintain their independence. This support can vary from daily welfare calls to ensuring care packages are in place. You will not be involved in hands-on care.
You are going to be busy and so great time management skills are essential. There will always be problems to solve and so you will need to be solution focused.
The successful candidate should have a strong understanding of housing related issues and have a good knowledge of IT. The position is a lone working role although you will work as part of a team, achieving results together. You will also need to cover Bank Holidays, which are allocated on a roster basis. You will need access to a vehicle and a full driving licence.
As part of this exciting role you will be offered the opportunity to gain a professional qualification in our business area, if not already achieved.
So what are you waiting for? If this sounds like the role for you then we want to hear from you now!
What you can expect from us
We want our colleagues at all levels to be bold, inspiring and not afraid to speak up and be their authentic selves.
Your wellbeing is really important to us, so you can expect a competitive reward package to ensure you and your family are supported at work and at home.
We’ll work with you to help you reach your goals through personal development plans and our in-house People Development team.
Depending on your role you may need to work a set shift pattern, or you may have greater flexibility to choose when and where you work. Either way, we strive to ensure all colleagues have a degree of flexibility to attend life’s important events.
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.
This is a fixed term contract for up to 12 months.
Interviews will be held on 1 March.
