Your new role
We're excited to say our 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!
We're looking for an Advanced Multi-Skilled Operative to join our team working in and around the Eastleigh, Basingstoke, Alton & Hampshire area including the occasional work in and around Yeovil where you'll work in an agile manner covering various locations across our stock profile.
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 what we do represent value for money and are resident focused.
As our Advanced Multi-Skilled Operative, you'll be accountable in completing a wide variety of trades tasks to a high standard with an emphasis on delivering an efficient repairs service to our customers focusing on our Disrepair claims.
Using your proactive and forward-thinking approach, you’ll liaise with customers and other colleagues, as appropriate, to ensure all relevant individuals are aware of progress and action taken and you'll make sure that our work carried out are compliant with health and safety in accordance with relevant service standards, building regulations, relevant legislations and codes of practice, to include use of all PPE.
Remember, we don’t want to do things the way they’ve always been done, we want to do things even better!
In addition, you’ll assist all other colleagues as and when required ensuring that residents receive the best possible quality service.
It's essential that you have C&G or NVQ level 3 as well as time serviced experience in a vast selection of trades. Plumbing, Carpentry & building are a must along with a proven track record in fault finding and scoping up works.
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!

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!
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.
