At Orwell we’re leading the way and are part of a wider consortium of housing providers, jointly working together across East Anglia. We are building strong and sustainable communities by providing high quality affordable homes with well-designed local community facilities. These houses are our assets. We have high standards and all our properties need to be maintained to ensure our tenants are safe and happy in their homes. And this is where we need you……….

Our new Head of Repairs and voids will manage the responsive repair service, ensuring that all properties are repaired in accordance with our high-quality standards.
