Finding work or training
Helping you find work - with us or in Peterborough
Welcome to our careers’ section. This could be the start of something special, if you take pride in your work and want to make a difference.
We are the city’s largest housing association managing around 14% of the households in the city. As such we have a huge local commitment and responsibility. As part of our landlord services we continue to improve our homes and provide a repairs and anti-social behaviour service. However, we are also much more than just a landlord. We are a key community player, committed to delivering excellent and customer-focused services 100 per cent of the time. In addition to residential homes, we also lease 72 shops and provide a community alarm service, known as Lifeline, to elderly and vulnerable people. In the past year we have launched a brand new domiciliary care service, Cross Keys Care, ahead of the completion of our very first extra care complex in Stanground, which opens in summer 2014.
This means that not only can we provide jobs and careers in lots of different areas working for us, we also have the experience and passion to help you find the right job or training just for you, even if that's not working with us.
At Cross Keys Homes, we're proud of our staff, our business and the neighbourhoods we serve.
Peterborough is a fantastic place to live and work and our award winning team helps people in all sorts of ways. We manage homes, tackle deprivation and inequalities, boost job prospects, develop new homes and even save people's lives. How many careers give you the chance to do all of these things?
We are also one of the UK's leading landlords for customer satisfaction and in 2011, 2012, and 2013 we are in The Sunday Times top 100 Best Companies to work for in the Public and Charity Sector category and hold the Investors in People silver accreditation.
Our aim is to ensure that our customers receive the best service so we are dedicated to recruiting talented individuals who enjoy working in a key field, supporting colleagues and relish helping people as well as representing the communities we serve.
You'll need the right skills, knowledge and experience for the job as well as a can-do attitude and a genuine desire to delight our customers. If you think you’ve got these attributes, Managers at Cross Keys Homes will be interested in your application. In return, Cross Keys Homes can offer a great place to work including a good salary, a defined contribution pension scheme, opportunities to develop your skills and plenty of extras as standard, such as a free gym, free car parking and generous holiday entitlement.
I look forward to meeting you soon.
Claire Higgins, Chief Executive
