Project Officer - Trainee

Kingdom Housing Association


About the Job:
We are excited to be recruiting for a new Project Officer Trainee to join our team. As a member of the Project Team, you will help deliver a number of new build projects, contributing to the delivery of Kingdom’s Affordable Housing programme and taking forward identified projects from post-tender stage through to completion ensuring compliance with relevant regulatory and grant conditions.

The traineeship is a fixed term contract for 3 years and whilst there is no guarantee of a permanent job with us at the end of the traineeship, we think you’ll be in a great position to take the next step in your career.


About You:

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who is keen to change their career. If you have transferable skills that meet our person spec this could be your next role. You need to be able to work as part of a team but also on your own initiative. You will be responsible for driving your training and development, and we will provide the support and guidance that will complement the college/university-based learning.


What Will I Gain from the Traineeship?

You will gain a formal qualification in a relevant discipline while working with a team of experienced professionals who will be on hand to mentor and support you through your learning journey.


Is it for me?

This role would suit someone who has a keen interest in the planning and development of affordable and mid market housing. It is varied and challenging and also extremely rewarding. You will have the opportunity to be part of important projects and as your traineeship progresses will take the lead on your own projects. If you can manage a complex workload, work as part of a wider team and on your own initiative this could be the next role for you.


We Offer:

  • An attractive salary and benefits package
  • A contributory pension scheme (employer contribution of 10%) and the option to join the salary exchange pension scheme.
  • Generous annual leave entitlement of 37 days (33 days plus 4 days of public holidays).
  • After 5 years of continuous service, you’ll receive an additional 2 days annual leave and a further 2 days after 10 years.
  • Access to an interest-free loan to purchase tools and equipment.
  • Access to our low-interest car loan scheme. (Where eligible)
  • Access to our Kingdom Academy offers a range of learning and development opportunities.
  • Enhanced family friendly (enhanced maternity, adoption, paternity and shared parental leave) and sick pay entitlements (up to 6 months full pay).
  • Access to our employee assistance programme provides a free information service and an employee counselling service.
  • Discounted gym membership.
  • Access to our Employee Benefits Platform provides many discounts across UK retailers, our Cycle to Work scheme, and travel and leisure staff benefits, enabling you to spread the cost of holidays and well-being support.


How to apply:

You can apply online by visiting our website: and clicking the Kingdom Housing Association Vacancies link. We will provide further information on the interview format to all those invited.

Kingdom is committed to contributing towards the eradication of homelessness. As part of that, we particularly welcome applications from people who are currently registered homeless or have been in the last 12 months. We will guarantee shortlisting to any applicant who meets that criteria and the essential criteria for the vacancy.

If we offer you the role and you are homeless at that point, we will also offer you a tenancy in one of our properties as part of the Naumann Initiative. If you wish your application to be considered under the scheme, please state this under “Supporting information” on your application form.
