Finding work or training

Welcome to our employment and training section. If you take pride in your work and want to make a difference, this could be the start of something special for you.

As the city's largest housing association, we have a huge local commitment and responsibility. As well as providing homes, we also lease 72 shops and provide a community alarm service, known as LifeLine, to older and vulnerable people. We run a community care service, Cross Keys Care, as well as two extra care schemes, Kingfisher Court and Lapwing Apartments.

This means that we provide jobs and careers in lots of different areas. And we have the experience and passion to help you find the right job or training – either with us or with another organisation.

The pride of Peterborough                          

At Cross Keys Homes, we're proud of our staff, our business and the neighbourhoods we serve.

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 that?

We want to make sure our customers receive the best possible service. That's why we recruit talented individuals who enjoy helping people and supporting their colleagues. 

To work with us, you'll need the right skills, knowledge and experience for the job as well as a can-do attitude and a genuine desire to help people. If you think you’ve got these attributes, we want to hear from you. In return, we'll give you a good salary, a defined contribution pension scheme, opportunities to develop your skills and plenty of extras such as a free gym and free car parking.
