The Bernicia Group has a proven track record and long-standing commitment to the delivery of affordable housing across the North East of England.  Our reputation is driven by quality, innovation, expertise and delivering what we say we will do, which is something that our partners can always rely upon.

The continued provision of affordable new homes is a key aspect of the Bernicia’s overall aims, and we are looking to develop a further 1000 new homes over the next 5 years.

We will continue to develop a range of affordable rented and intermediate housing products for a range of client groups, including single people, families, older persons and accommodation for residents with a variety of support requirements.  In the provision of new homes, we will:

  • Reflect local diversity;
  • Provide value for money.

We are looking for candidates with the skills and experience to contribute to the delivery of our affordable homes programme.  You will have the opportunity to project manage a range of new initiatives from scheme initiation to contract award; and on to completion and final account. If you have strong organisational skills in project management and have excellent time and communication skills, then we would love to hear from you.
