We are a residential property group with a social purpose. Our vision is to improve people's lives through high quality homes and services. Whilst we take a commercial approach to housebuilding, we reinvest all of our profits into building more new homes and supporting the communities where we work.
We provide affordable, private and social rented homes, student, NHS and temporary accommodation, as well as supported housing and homes for older people. We also offer high-quality sustainable homes for sale and shared ownership, available through our FABRICA by A2Dominion brand. Whilst we take a commercial approach to housebuilding, all of the surpluses the Group generates are reinvested into supporting our social purpose, helping to deliver more homes and services for customers.
The group has been successful to date in embedding effective change throughout the business to enable it to meet regulatory, legislative and many best practice requirements to deliver safeguarding. We are now looking for someone to help us to maintain and improve the culture we have developed.
This is an exciting time to join A2Dominion and be part of the Group's £20m change programme, Fit for the Future, which is transforming the way we work and significantly improving the services we deliver to our customers.
