Make a difference with the Housing Maintenance Experts.


Kier Housing Maintenance (HM) have long standing partnership agreements with housing associations, local authorities and private landlords to conduct responsive repairs and planned maintenance across various sites.

Kier Housing Maintenance East are now recruiting for a Contract Manager to join us on our Muir Housing partnership, to execute the contracts we’ve been assigned professionally and in accordance with the agreed specification and requirements in the most cost-effective manner whilst complying with all current legislation/engineering standards and company procedures.


Key Responsibilities

The successful applicant will ensure at all times that the likelihood of repeat business from the client is maximised and client satisfaction/contract compliance is maintained. Kier has a fantastic Health and Safety record and this role will make sure these responsibilities are maintained and in keeping with Kier Group Safety, Health and Environment Management System (‘KGSHEMS’) requirements.

You will take the lead in decision making in order to effectively supervise, plan, organise and deploy employees (direct and indirect) on work streams including projects, programmed repairs, maintenance, adaptations, FRA and void properties in line with client expectations and to the best possible standards.

This is a large regional role and therefore regular travel all over the regions covered will be required, with Cambridgeshire having majority of the focus, and will require some travel to Leicestershire, Northamptonshire & Norfolk.


What do we need from you?

You will need to have previous experience within a similar Contract Manager role, ideally within a Social Housing Repairs & Maintenance environment. Alongside relevant H&S qualifications (SMSTS/IOSH), you should have strong track record in customer focused service delivery.

It would be highly desirable if you have a background in Gas or Electrical Engineering relating to Property Maintenance, as well as some background with Compliance.


What will you receive?

You can expect a competitive salary and an outstanding package that includes a company car, private healthcare, a matched pension scheme up to 7.5%, 26 days’ annual leave (with the opportunity to buy or sell holiday), two employee Share Scheme options, together with additional valuable benefits such as:

  • Free Life Assurance
  • Access to a range of attractive Flexible benefit options to tailor your package to suit your lifestyle
  • Flexible and Agile working (dependent on your role)
  • Employee Assistance Programme
  • Access to Kier Rewards, our exclusive Discount Shopping Site with deals available at over 800 retailers
  • Plus, many more benefits geared to your wellbeing.


Pre-employment checks

It’s worth remembering that if you are successful, we’ll undertake the relevant / standard pre-employment checks after you have been offered a job. This includes taking up your references, verifying your right to work in the UK, verifying your driving licence (if applicable) and a health assessment.


Due to the nature of this role, you will also be required to complete a Basic Disclosure and Barring Service Check (applicants with criminal convictions will be treated on a case by case basis. We do not discriminate based on an applicant’s criminal record or the details of any offences disclosed to us). Some roles may also be subject to further pre-employment checks.


Make the journey. Leave a legacy.


Being part of Kier means living our values of being Collaborative, Trusted and Focused. We all have the potential to shape our world, and it’s through these values that we will leave a lasting legacy. Bring your talent and ambition to Kier and you will be given the scope and opportunity to invest in your own future, to build your expertise and contribute to a rich and diverse culture.
