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 are currently seeking a Development Quality Manager to assist in delivering our Strategy Target of building more than 12,500 homes by 2030 to the highest quality, supporting the new business, sales, programme delivery and construction teams.

With your background in the successful delivering of construction projects in line with legislation and best practice, you will report to the Head of Technical Delivery, carrying out regular site inspections and managing latent defects to ensure customer satisfaction and quality of product is achieved.

We are looking for someone who is committed with a natural drive who can demonstrate our values and behaviours. The successful candidate will have extensive relevant experience in construction and demonstrable experience of resolving technical issues.

You will be able to quickly build effective working relationships with internal and external stakeholders at all levels and be able to manage a variety of projects in a fast-paced environment.

You will be based in Yeovil and you will work in an agile manner, covering all locations but mainly in the west of our operating area.

A full driving licence and access to own transport are essential for this role.

This is an excellent opportunity for a pro-active and passionate individual looking to contribute to an enthusiastic and hardworking team, to help deliver a substantial programme of new homes.

If you feel you have the experience, skills and attitude, 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.
