We want to build great communities, not just great homes. You’ll help us make it happen.

At Teign Housing, we’re passionate about giving our residents the best possible homes and our team the best and most flexible careers.

About the Estates Maintenance Operative role

As one of our Estates Maintenance Operatives, you will cut grass, maintain hedges and plant shrubs and flowers to create attractive landscapes, resolve enquiries from tenants and oversee Health & Safety compliance in everything you do, giving you plenty of variety and responsibility.

About you

Experienced in all aspects of grounds maintenance, you will hold a clean current driving licence and be capable of using industrial machinery safety. Needless to say, you should share our passion for customer service and be self-motivated, well-organised and hardworking, and you will bring excellent interpersonal skills.

A formal Health & Safety qualification would be very useful, as would a trailer towing licence and some pesticide training, but this is by no means essential as we will provide a comprehensive induction.


We are an Investor in People Platinum organisation, so you will be joining a company that creates a supportive high-performance culture. You can also expect to enjoy an excellent benefits package, including:

• Training opportunities
• 25 days’ leave plus bank holidays and discretionary leave between Christmas and New Year
• Pension scheme
• Free parking
• Employee Assistance Programme
• And much more
