Happy to help, eager to learn and just a little bit obsessed with home improvement, you’ll feel right at home with us. You’re friendly and outgoing, and you get a buzz from helping others. You’re great at working in a team too and flexible enough to work on a rota that includes weekends, evenings and bank holidays.

A good home for everyone isn’t just our purpose – it’s also what we are.As part of a great team, you’ll be supported to grow and encouraged to explore new opportunities within the business. And, because you’ll be inspiring great things for our customers, you’ll do work really worth caring about.
