We welcome requests for work experience from local high schools and colleges. The departments that are able to accommodate placements are:
Corporate Services - this department will give you an insight into how our business works. Human Resources deals with matters relating to our Staff, including recruitment , training, terms and conditions, structures and advising line managers. The Corporate Services team deals with administration, office management, governance, events, communications and publications.
Finance - Are you good with numbers? This team could give you a perspective on how finance within a business works. You'll have plenty of opportunity to do some of your own number crunching!
IT- If you have an interest in computer systems and have lots of energy, this is the department for you. No day is the same so you’ll gain a wealth of experience by shadowing a member of the team to resolve a range of technological issues.
Tenant Services - A placement in this department could mean shadowing our Housing Officers or Customer Service Advisors and gaining some knowledge around Housing Management. Or you could choose to work alongside our Estate Assistants who work outdoors in our developments.
Maintenance - There will be lots of opportunities to get out and about within this team; you'll see how calls are raised by shadowing our Customer Service Advisors and then following through the call by shadowing our Building Surveyors who visit properties to inspect the fault/damage before taking further action.
Development - if you’re interested in development of properties or how we find land to build on, then this department is definitely for you.
