Looking after Brent Homes
Brent made the bold decision to bring back its ALMO in 2017 and things have been going well since. The service has been redesigned to focus on delivering the service residents want. We want to ensure people live in well maintained homes and estates and we are prepared to put in the required level of investment to achieve this. We know cash alone won’t deliver the changes our residents want to see, we need excellent people who have the right experience, knowledge and attitude to make the cash work and there’s where you come in.
Our Property Services team is looking for people to take on a number of key posts, to deliver sector leading customer experience for Brent tenants and leaseholders.
