HCHA is a social housing provider with stock within the M25 predominantly in Harrow. We also have a great service called ADAPT that offers basic aids and adaptations to people in their own home to help them remain independent.
The HCHA Maintenance Team provide a speedy responsive repair and maintenance service to our tenants including plumbing and electrical work, day to day repairs and some painting and decorating. We are looking for an experienced and confident all-rounder who can also help us build ADAPT. The service involves working with the general public as well as our own tenants. You will be expected to lead and help to develop the service and take responsibility for making it work. You do not need direct experience of assessing and fitting aids and adaptations as we will train you to become a Trusted Assessor. Our current team are all trained and will support you to develop your skills and work with ADAPT. This role would really suit someone who can manage their own workload, be able to estimate and accurately quote and then deliver high quality work and also demonstrate excellent customer service skills.
To be successful in the role you will need to possess:
Solid experience across multi-trades
Ability to work unsupervised and acquire a Trusted Assessor qualification within the first three months in the role
High standards of work, a professional approach and ability to manage own workload
Ability to deal sensitively with people who need support to remain independent
A genuine interest in helping us make ADAPT work including being able to sell the idea to new customers
