New Start roles offer much more than just a job

Have you always fancied a job working in the outdoors? Then we may have just the roles for you!

We’ve created five Assistant Operative roles within our Estates Team as part of the New Start programme with Karbon Homes, funded by the North of Tyne Combined Authority.

They are the perfect way to unlock your potential and open up new career opportunities.

Open to all Bernicia, Karbon Homes, Your Homes Newcastle and North Tyneside Homes tenants, you will work for up to 30 hours per week, earning a wage and gaining real life work experience with our Estates Team maintaining the communities where our tenants live.
