Junior Administrator

Location: , , , ,
Hours: 40
Salary: £24,960
Planned start date: 26/02/2024

At The Housing Network we believe that when vulnerable people have a good home and a helping hand, they become more independent and less reliant on local authorities and that is exactly what we aim to achieve.

We partner with local authorities and other organisations and provide good quality, safe places for people to live. We understand that each situation and resident is different, so we work hard to provide the right homes quickly that ensure each individual is looked after well. Whether the need is temporary, supported shared, or more specialist accommodation, all of our properties meet the same quality standards, are well looked after and have a 24/7 maintenance service that fixes problems day or night.

Our employees are a reflection of the social value that is at the core of what we do and every role plays a critical part in delivering a first class service.
