In this role you will be supporting the delivery of this scheme to drastically improve the living conditions of thousands of people. 

You’ll be working with Sophie the project manager, internal teams and the commercial sector, you’ll be supporting the delivery of programme across selling, purchasing and refurbishing properties. This role will be focused on key activities such as working with teams to co-ordinate inspections and valuations and supporting with programme reporting and tracking. You will also support with more technical project areas, including visiting and assessing void properties for potential disposal, checking title deeds, freeholds and leases, completing business cases and aiding with budget management. 

This is a brilliant role to truly make a difference to lives of our residents.
