Jobs in housing development don’t all involve donning a hard hat and high-vis vests.

Of course, that’s an important part of it, but behind the scenes of every scheme is a hardworking sales team whose job it is to find the perfect home for every buyer. 

At Home Group, we know your new home is more than just bricks and mortar. Whether this is your first home or your one hundredth, buying a property can be confusing and daunting, and you can find yourself blinded by jargon.

That’s where our dedicated sales team come in. We help customers make decisions based on their needs and budget to ensure everything goes smoothly and is as stress free as possible. 

One of our recent customers was Bryony. Bryony and her family were living in private rented accommodation and looking to get on the property ladder when she contacted us about Shared Ownership. Buying your first home is a daunting experience, and we know how important regular contact with our customers is. We were there for Bryony during the process, allaying concerns whenever she needed us to. They were so excited to move in - Bryony couldn't wait to put her stamp on the place, and the children loved exploring their new home and playing in their new garden.

Our involvement with the customer doesn’t stop at completion - after the completion the sales team were still there for Bryony. We have Aftercare Managers who stay in touch with customers whilst they’re settling in, answering any questions they might have now that they’ve got the keys to their own home. Perhaps something like, it’s a real privilege/joy to see our customers settling in to their new homes?

Customers know they can talk to the sales team about anything, and it’s a great feeling to know people put their confidence in us when buying a Home Group home. Working with the sales team provides incredible job satisfaction – there’s no feeling like knowing purchasers are happy and that we have helped them on the road to home ownership. 

If you’re looking for a job that offers the opportunity to help people fulfil their aspirations of home ownership and take their first step on the property ladder, then Home Group is the place for you.
