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

We're excited to say our Home Care team is expanding and delivering more services across our properties to support our ambitions of leading our sector in customer service – and we need you!

This is a three months fixed term role. 

You'll be based primarily in Eastleigh but you'll work in an agile manner covering all locations.

We have ambitious plans to significantly improve the user-experience and quality of our vehicle stock and you play a key part in this. As our Fleet Operation Support Operative, you'll support our Fleet Operations Coordinators and company vehicle users by completing vehicle condition appraisals, fleet administration and basic maintenance/repairs. 

Customers are at the heart of everything we do so we want to make sure that all our services provided are of high quality and undertaken with a commercial and customer-based ethos. We also want to make sure that all vehicles are serviced, repaired, road legal and compliant with Health & Safety law. Remember, we don’t want to do things the way they’ve always been done, we want to do things even better!  

If you want the opportunity to join a team as committed as you are to customer safety and satisfaction and want to make a huge difference to our organisation that won’t go unnoticed by colleagues and customers alike, we want 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.

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.

Interviews will be held via Microsoft Teams.


To our agency friends

We already have a number of carefully selected agency partners who know our business well and who support our in-house recruitment team during exceptionally busy periods. We’re not looking to add to our preferred supplier list right now but if you’d like to be considered at a future date please don’t hesitate to register on our procurement portal.


We’ll review and interview suitable candidates as they apply. If we receive enough applications, we'll close the advert early so be sure to apply today so you don’t miss out!
