Home Safety Specialist (Hazards)

Job Description

About Red Kite Community Housing

With more than 6,000 homes in the Wycombe district, including houses, flats, blocks and shops, our responsibility to keep them as safe as possible has never been more important. As a tenant-led, not-for-profit housing association, our customers and people in our local communities, need the reassurance that we do everything we can to keep our properties up to scratch when it comes to compliance, so this role is crucial in making that happen.

About the role

As a Home Safety Specialist, you’ll be responsible for delivering our compliance service - that will include having a solid understanding of all the statutory legislation in relation to asbestos management, fire safety, water risk (Legionella), hygiene units and lifts.  

We’re looking for a confident, organised and extremely proactive person to join us and help manage these vital areas.

You need to have strong technical knowledge about construction and construction-related health and safety and housing management, and importantly, we need someone who can use their negotiating skills to deliver best value services and continuous improvement for our customers. 

Expert knowledge in at least one of the disciplines is required, and experience in more than one discipline will be a definite advantage. 

With a flexible and friendly approach, you will have a clear grasp of the challenges facing the housing sector, ideally gained from experience within the social housing / servicing and maintenance sector.
