You will operate within company Health and Safety guidelines and remain up to date with technical and legal requirements of your skill areas.

The Project

Our Birmingham Branch covers the whole of South Birmingham. The branch employs roughly 270 people providing repairs, maintenance and refurbishments to over 26,000 homes per year.

Most importantly, you will be joining a values based business with a true family ethos, with our people at the heart of everything that we do. Are you looking for a job? Or are you looking for an employer who will welcome you, support you, and encourage you to be the best you!
