Scheme Services Coordinator – Reading Area

Who are we?

Southern Housing Group is one of the largest housing associations in the south-east of England.  We provide good quality housing for older people and deliver an onsite, responsive service helping people to manage their tenancies and independence in their own home.    

Your role

The role of the Scheme Services Coordinator is highly valued.  You will be the first point of contact for our customers and their support networks.  You will also make sure our sheltered schemes are safe, pleasant places to live.  You will work proactively with colleagues and professionals across the voluntary and statutory organisations to find solutions that benefit our customers. 

We are looking for a Scheme Services Coordinator that will work in schemes across a patch with 7 sheltered schemes in the Reading area.
