Ensuring a positive environment for our customers. That’s when it hits home.
We have fabulous opportunity for you to join our awesome grounds maintenance team. You’ll have responsibility for managing day to day delivery of our ground’s maintenance services in your area.
You’ll need to keep a close grip on our contracts, working closely with all our partners to deliver to expected standards and agreed timescales. You’ll do that by making regular site visits where you’ll carry out spot checks and advise of relevant recommendations. You’ll be involved in our site specifications, budgets and spend, and will support with external contract management.
We hold regular contract review meetings and as part of these, you’ll need to work with (and challenge) our partners to hold them accountable. Where our specifications may not be working, you’ll need to agree new ones. Finally, you will work with internal Home Group colleagues to make sure any new sites are correctly priced and appropriate contracts agreed.
About the team
You’ll be working as part of our fabulous team who are super passionate about delivering a first-class maintenance solution to our customers. Our Head of Maintenance, Jonny has worked here at Home Group for 2 years now, having worked in the property sector for the past 9 years. Outside of work Jonny enjoys a hectic social life and when not out on his bike is planning his next holiday destination. You’ll be reporting into Richard, who has extensive experience in the Grounds Maintenance sector and is passionate about getting it right for the customer as well as setting and smashing targets. We like a challenge; we hope you do too!
Here at Home Group we work flexibly, and the focus is on getting the job done and that means trusting each other. You’ll will have the opportunity to manage your own diary and appointments.
A bit about you
You are a real people person, great team player who finds ways to work together and collaborate. You’re a great problem solver and confident in finding and agreeing solutions. You love putting your great diplomacy skills to use to find mutually agreeable outcomes!
You thrive on delivering fantastic customer satisfaction. As your role will impact directly on our customers living environments, it’s important that you deliver real value for money for them! You’ll even get to work with our customer viewpoint team to make sure we’re getting it right!
We need you to have strong technical and administrative skills. You will get involved in tasks such as managing the accounts, budgets and invoices for grounds maintenance.
To make sure that we keep our records straight, and customers safe, it's really important that you are technologically savvy (or at the very least not a technophobe!) You need to be aware that we are a high-tech company and most of our processes and tools are online.
It is important that you have a strong grounds maintenance background and you have worked in a ground’s maintenance environment before, however it’s your “can do” positive attitude and organisational and communication skills that are critical to make this role a success. You need to be able to drive, as well as having access to a car insured for business purposes. Don’t worry, we’ll pay you expenses to cover this use!
