Job Description

We currently have a number of opportunities to join us as a caretaker and maintain our area as a place where people are proud to live. 

This is an ideal opportunity to access a variety of opportunities to learn, as well as gain a new perspective on your career choices and get hands-on, practical instruction.

The role is to provide an effective caretaking service and maintain the general environmental upkeep of our estate and properties. This includes sweeping and mopping the insides of our blocks, attending to bin areas and litter picking the outside spaces.  

We are looking for candidates who are self-motivated and can demonstrate a high level of customer service and confidence when addressing a variety of issues. You must also have excellent communication skills to enable you to engage with our residents, colleagues and partners to improve our services and meet our performance standards.

About Phoenix Community Housing

Phoenix is a housing organisation with a difference. As London’s first Community Gateway, we’re owned and led by our residents. Some housing associations talk about resident involvement. We live and breathe it every day.

We believe this is our core strength and it’s helped us achieve a wide range of accolades and awards.

Just over a decade since residents voted to create Phoenix, we’ve secured £60million investment to build hundreds of new homes. Our first development – a 60-home extra care scheme for older people – has already won architectural awards.

We’re working with partners to roll out increasing employment support for our residents, and have restored a dilapidated pub into a new community venue thanks to a £4million Lottery grant. 

Our big ambitions apply to our staff too. We have an ongoing cultural transformation programme to make us a leading customer experience organisation as well as a fantastic place to work. We are very proud to be an Investors in People Gold organisation.

If you think you’re the right person to help us make the next stage of our journey, then we’d love to hear from you.

Our benefits include 30 days annual leave (plus 8 bank holidays). We strongly believe in a work-life balance so we’re open to flexible working requests. We have a generous pension scheme along with a wellbeing programme, comprehensive learning and development package and a culture of employee involvement.

Phoenix is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of vulnerable groups, and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age.
