At Squared we pride ourselves on being more than a great place to work, where everyone feels fairly treated and enjoys their work in a welcoming and friendly environment. We’re a not-for-profit housing association that has been providing affordable housing in Luton and South Bedfordshire since 1962. Our services don’t stop there. Our mission is “HOMES SUPPORT OPPORTUNITY” - as well as providing housing for our customers we firmly believe in proactively supporting them to improve their lives. Squared sees its tenants and residents (our customers) as individuals who have choices, although at the time they come to us they may not be aware of that.  We promote a coaching culture, empowering individuals to make choices about their lives on their journey to improve their day to day and future lives. 

Squared refuses to stand still and our ambition coupled with a compelling strategy is part of the momentum that carries us forward. Our 5-year vision to 2025 focuses on creating purposeful employment opportunities for our customers and we want to work with like-minded people who believe in our values and like to get things done… and that is where you fit into the bigger picture!

We currently have a fantastic opportunity for a dynamic, innovative and enthusiastic results driven senior manager with proven experience to join us and take overall responsibility for managing and providing direction to our inhouse maintenance and repairs department to support the delivery of our business objectives. You will also be closely working with supporting the social enterprise service.

You will be a creative, strategic thinker having proven experience of inspirational leadership and an entrepreneurial approach; identifying and assessing opportunities for operational innovation bringing cost and time efficiencies across the broad spectrum of operations of the maintenance and repairs department; managing Intellectual Property Portfolio for the Company; utilising analysis and insight to improve service effectiveness.
