Are you looking to kick-start your career in estate services with an opportunity that impacts the lives of our residents? Do you want a fulfilling role that combines practical hands-on experience and skills with plenty of time outdoors and a regular wage?

We have two London-based apprenticeships with our Estates Services team, who help to ensure our estates are kept well maintained and safe, creating places our residents can be proud to live.

We are passionate about offering you rewarding opportunities to work with us and welcome applications from our residents to our apprenticeship vacancies. Our ambition is to provide you with the experience and skills to springboard you into a permanent position and great future opportunities. You will benefit from working alongside an experienced mentor, who will support you to gain a qualification in Facilities Management.
