Where could this role take you?
Whilst this is not currently a permanent role, in a business our size (around 550 employees with over 16,000 properties) and with the transformation we are going through, there is a strong possibility that this could either be extended or other opportunities may arise; many of our talented colleagues started at Paradigm as temporary/interim and have gone on to forge successful careers with us. However, if something longer term doesn’t materialize, you will still gain valuable experience which will add to your employability in this and similar fields.
We welcome applications from all sections of the communities we work in. Shortlisting will be conducted in line with the essential and desirable criteria set out in the person specification.
We will be reviewing applications throughout the campaign and may invite candidates to interview at any time, therefore reserve the right to close this role earlier than the published date should a suitable candidate be identified.
