Here is what our people have to say about us

Rachael - Income and Welfare Team Leader

Rachael - Income and Welfare Team Leader

I have been with Havebury for 24 years now and I love it. I enjoy being in a tenant facing role and I am proud of the difference we make to our tenants’ lives.

Health and well-being is a huge priority for us, I always take part in ‘bring your dog to work’ days. My golden retriever, Harley loves playing with everyone else’s dogs and it’s great to catch up with my colleagues from across the business.

I joined Havebury in lockdown. The recruitment process was actually really enjoyable – something I have not experienced in other organisations.

One of the things that encouraged me to apply for the role was the flexible approach to work. It is very important to me to be able to do a job that I love whilst still being able to spend time with my three young children.

I have been with the organisation for 5 years now. I started out in a different team but helped the Communications team out when they needed extra resource and really enjoyed it. As soon as a role came up within the team, I jumped at the chance. Since then, I have been promoted to internal communication adviser.

Havebury has really invested in me, I started a special certificate in internal communications this year and I am excited to put my newfound knowledge into practice.

I left my previous job because I couldn’t maintain a healthy work/life balance. I joined Havebury as a health, safety and facilities advisor on a temporary contract. Fast forward 2 years, and a global pandemic and I am now the health, safety and facilities manager.

I am so thankful to Havebury for supporting me to work in a senior role and still spend valuable time with my children.

I went on a training course with my previous organisation and I was the only person who didn’t work at Havebury. I really liked everyone’s energy and they all spoke really highly about Havebury. I decided there and then that I was going to get a job with Havebury. I applied as a gas safety administrator and here I am!

In the last 7 years, I have undertaken so many training courses to further my knowledge and this year became a project manager. I am enjoying working with people from across the business and continuing to develop my skills

I started off my career as a carpenter, many years ago! Havebury gives you the support, training and development to help you achieve your goals. I really enjoy working with our in-house technicians to ensure the successful running of our repairs service for our tenants.

I would tell anyone that’s thinking about applying for a job at Havebury to go for it – it’s the best thing you will ever do!

I started at Havebury in the finance team working in procurement. Working here is really like having an extended family, everyone is so supported. I enjoyed my job but I wanted to make more of a difference and work closely with our tenants.

My fellow colleagues encouraged me to apply for the customer experience role when it became available – they gave me the confidence to do it. I am now the first person tenants speak to when they call us and I love being that friendly person on the end of the phone to make them feel at ease.

The best thing about working here is definitely the people – everyone is so passionate and dedicated to getting things right for our tenants and customers.

Joining an organisation remotely has been very different but everyone I have come across has made me feel so welcome. The people at Havebury really demonstrate our values of respecting, engaging and being far, no matter what their job role is.
