We are Touchstone, part of the Places for People Group; we are placemakers; our work impacts on the lives of people across the U.K. - providing homes to live in, communities to retire to, spaces to stay active, supported homes for independent living, and student accommodation. Our places work when they work for everyone.
How do we do all this? By surrounding ourselves with supportive people, friendly people and can-do people. Our people live and breathe our SPIRIT values; we are the place for spirited people.
So, we want you to join us and the 12,000 other colleagues on our journey; colleagues who have helped us create places, maintain 209,000 homes, manage £4.5 billion of assets, deliver £87.9m in social value and teach 80,000 children to swim each week.
More about your role
You will join a small close knit team that boasts a strong work ethic and are known for their friendly approach. As one of our team you will provide first line support to all our customers - tenants, clients, contractors and other external parties, whilst working closely with our internal teams, ensuring all issues are resolved quickly and effectively. You will join our maintenance team consisting of a team leader and administrators, handling maintenance queries being the point of contact for landlords, tenants and contractors. You will book jobs, process invoices and manage the deposit release process. The best interest of the property owner is at the heart of what we do, working within client, company and statutory regulations.
This role has been evaluated to suit a 'hybrid' working pattern for a trial period whereby there will be the opportunity to work from home for some days each week if preferred
