Similar to previous seismic shifts in securing talent within social housing, such as the formation of Building Safety teams or Damp and Mould Projects, Housing providers all end up scrabbling to secure the right people with the right expertise to deliver these works and services, often under the spotlight of heightened public focus.
As a specialist social housing recruitment agency, we see first-hand how these vacancies appear on-mass and the struggle organisations have in filling these crucial posts.
So, whilst the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund (SHDF) grants are currently available to help tackle the problem of reaching Net Zero, strategic plans must be accepted in order to receive this funding. Housing providers will therefore require specialist staff that understand the SHDF application process and people to deliver these Major refurbishment or Planned Works projects.
We are here to help and have put the leg work in already to develop a large network of Housing specialists, experts and professionals in the Sustainability, Decarbonisation and Retrofit space, from strategic planning and securing grant funding through decarbonisation programme creation and management to delivery of projects with experienced retrofit project managers we can be your trusted partner to help deliver your Net Zero target.
For help planning and delivering your recruitment strategy in this area, please feel free to get in touch.
