 About us 
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. 
About you 

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

Are you pro-active, highly-motivated, professional and friendly? We're looking for someone who is passionate and diligent to join our HomeCare team as an Apprentice Electrician.

You'll work four days with Abri and spend one day at Yeovil College. Much of your time at Abri will be spent with our in-house Construction team but you will also have an opportunity to work with our Responsive Repairs team.

Your day to day will include: 

  • You'll learn relevant aspects of electrical installation, day-to-day repairs, maintenance and servicing within our properties.
  • You'll learn about health and safety requirements, other relevant legislation and Codes of Practice.
  • On a day-to-day basis you'll be supported by the Site Manager and an Electrician Mentor.
  • You'll assist Site Electricians with basic tasks such as handling tools, leading to working independently on tasks that require less skill or experience.
  • You'll learn about how to identify or troubleshoot electrical faults.
  • You'll need to attend college and complete all course work on time, and to a high standard.

​​​​​​​This is an excellent opportunity for an enthusiastic, self-motivated and well-driven individual looking to contribute to a dynamic and fast-paced team. A chance to work on construction sites across the south of England, building affordable homes which will provide shelter to those in most housing need.

Does this sound like the opportunity you’ve been looking for? Then we’d love to hear from you!

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.  You’ll receive 28 days of annual leave a year (pro-rata for our part time colleagues) with Bank Holidays on top as well as being entitled to our generous pension scheme. 
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.  
Be yourself 
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.
