How we work

In an ever-changing world we need to innovate, experiment, and be ready for the next thing. We want to learn along the way and we're eager to find new ways to improve what we do and how we do it.

All one team

You’ll work with skilled, creative and professional teams, partners and individuals. But we'll be looking to you to bring something fresh to what we do.

Apart from your experience we're just as interested in your ideas, your spirit and whatever makes you tick.

We are committed to making sure that the way that we select, appoint and advance people is only based on merit. We're also a Disability Confident employer - you can find out more below. 

Our values

Above all we want to hear from people who share our values - people who put customers first, who take responsibility, who do what they say they will for customers and colleagues, who will think of better ways to do things and who have energy and positivity.

Our head office

Our offices are in Macclesfield - 25 mins from Manchester Piccadilly, 1 hour 45 mins to London and with the beautiful Peak District on our doorstep.

Many of us work out and about in customers' homes or supporting our tenants, while others are either home working or based at our award-winning offices in Macclesfield. With a policy of agile working, you can decide with your manager what will be best for you and your team. 

We're proud to be a Disability Confident employer.

Disability Confident is a government scheme that helps employers recruit and retain talented disabled employees. It was designed by employers and disabled people's representatives.

As a Disability Confident employer, we are committed to:

  • Actively looking to attract and recruit disabled people.
  • Providing a fully inclusive and accessible recruitment process.
  • Offering an interview to disabled people who meet the minimum criteria for the job.
  • Flexibility when assessing people so disabled job applicants have the best opportunity to demonstrate that they can do the job.
  • Proactively offering and making reasonable adjustments as required.
  • Ensuring employees have appropriate disability equality awareness.
  • Providing work experience, work trials, paid employment, apprenticeships, traineeships, paid internships or supported internships.

Our organisation is built around getting the best person for the job and supporting them in their work, regardless of their circumstances.

So, building our understanding and confidence about disability can only be a good thing.
