What we stand for<br />

Our mission is to build long-term partnerships to deliver highquality<br />

homes and thriving new communities. We have a clear<br />

vision to help guide us to do this.<br />

Building communities. Transforming lives.<br />

It’s important to us that we don’t just build homes. We do much<br />

more. Because if you build the right kind of homes, in the right<br />

places, we can impact people’s lives in a way few others can.<br />

Everyone at <strong>Keepmoat</strong> <strong>Homes</strong> plays a part in delivering our vision,<br />

and to help guide us, we have our values.<br />

We are straightforward<br />

We get the job done in the most efficient and<br />

effective way. We are friendly, open and honest.<br />

It’s about being respectful and working in a<br />

transparent and honest way.<br />

We are passionate<br />

We care about what we do. We put pride and<br />

energy into delivering results. It’s important to us<br />

to do a good job.<br />

We are collaborative<br />

We work together in partnership to deliver<br />

the very best customer experience. Partnership<br />

working is key to our business. We work<br />

collaboratively to deliver the best results possible.<br />

We are creative<br />

We are proactive, flexible and resourceful. We<br />

listen, learn and deliver solutions. We don’t offer<br />

a one size fits all solution. We are flexible and will<br />

tailor our services to our customers’ needs.<br />

Alexis Smart, Senior Finance<br />

Manager: I like the way I<br />

genuinely feel part of a team at<br />

<strong>Keepmoat</strong> and that I have a voice<br />

in my region contributing to its success<br />

We believe in partnerships<br />

Our Partnership Business Model is what sets us apart<br />

from other homebuilders. In fact, we are proud to be<br />

one of the largest strategic partners of <strong>Homes</strong> England.<br />

What does being a partnership builder mean?<br />

We actively pursue opportunities to build more homes in<br />

partnership with local authorities, <strong>Homes</strong> England and registered<br />

providers. Around a third of the homes we build each year are<br />

registered providers (usually social housing organisations).<br />

It puts <strong>Keepmoat</strong> <strong>Homes</strong> right at the heart of delivering the<br />

nation’s need for quality, affordable homes. We work closely with<br />

over 200 partners up and down the UK to make this happen,<br />

some we’ve worked with for over 20 years.<br />

Why are we the partner of choice?<br />

Other than being great to work with, our experience enables us to<br />

work with our partners to create innovative approaches to accelerate<br />

the delivery of more new homes. We combine this with our expertise<br />

in transforming brownfield sites to create well designed, thriving<br />

communities that improve the lives of local people and local areas.<br />

How does this help communities?<br />

We collaborate and work in partnership with local stakeholders to<br />

ensure that our developments improve the area for residents. We<br />

also work closely with schools, local representatives, community<br />

leaders and community groups to support localised priorities and even<br />

employ local people. Supporting communities to flourish and become<br />

sustainable long after our developments end.<br />

What does that mean for you?<br />

It means when you join <strong>Keepmoat</strong> <strong>Homes</strong> you’re part of something<br />

much bigger. We’re committed to creating the homes first time buyers<br />

and families need. In the places they need them. Above and beyond<br />

our social conscience and our long-term partnerships provides us<br />

with the stability to grow and invest in our business and our people.<br />

Craig Pawlaczyk, Managing<br />

Quantity Surveyor: I strongly<br />

believe regeneration, both<br />

economically and socially, is so<br />

important in our industry and <strong>Keepmoat</strong><br />

does this so well through all the work we<br />

do with our partners.<br />

Lots of ways<br />

to get your<br />

career off the<br />

ground.<br />

We do more than build homes.<br />

We create great careers too.<br />

You can see this all around the<br />

business. It’s no coincidence that<br />

many of our senior management<br />

team started in other roles and<br />

have been inspired to develop<br />

their career within <strong>Keepmoat</strong>.<br />

Georgie Pover, Senior<br />

Marketing Coordinator:<br />

Working in marketing within<br />

the construction industry is a<br />

unique challenge as you are marketing<br />

a product which is arguably the most<br />

expensive purchase of a person’s life<br />

but I really enjoy it!<br />

When our people grow,<br />

we do too.<br />

For us it’s simple. When our people are happy, supported and inspired,<br />

anything is possible. We know our people are key to our success.<br />

And one of the best ways we can achieve our ambitions is to help you<br />

achieve yours.<br />

We employ over 1,100 people. We’re all committed to creating a working<br />

environment where everyone feels empowered to deliver success. It is<br />

fast-paced, friendly and a place where people are supported with their<br />

development and encouraged to grow.<br />

This culture was recognised in our Investors in People (IIP) accreditation,<br />

with the assessor highlighting our effective people-centric culture and the<br />

positive impact that this has on our performance as a business.<br />

Connor Stephenson, Apprentice<br />

Joiner: My apprenticeship has<br />

been an amazing opportunity for<br />

me to gain skills and trade for<br />

something I enjoy doing. <strong>Keepmoat</strong> <strong>Homes</strong><br />

have supported me throughout my studies<br />

by helping me get everything I needed to<br />

complete my work at college and on-site.<br />

We have a wide range of careers at <strong>Keepmoat</strong> <strong>Homes</strong>. A lot goes on<br />

behind the scenes of the construction site. Here are some of the roles;<br />

Land and Partnership Coordinator - identify, assess, pursue and<br />

progress potential land and partnership opportunities suitable for the<br />

business.<br />

Site Manager - manage our people, subcontractors and materials on<br />

our construction sites.<br />

Apprentices & Trainees<br />

Olivia Fowler, Technical<br />

Apprentice: I have always<br />

been a creative person and<br />

look for roles that challenge<br />

me and help me to learn. <strong>Keepmoat</strong><br />

has allowed me this opportunity and I<br />

have learnt so much already.<br />

We have an extensive<br />

supply chain and work<br />

with our contractors to<br />

promote apprenticeship<br />

opportunities on our sites<br />

As members of the 5% Club, <strong>Keepmoat</strong> <strong>Homes</strong> is<br />

fully committed to increasing the number of trainees,<br />

apprentices and graduates. Our diverse business allows<br />

us to offer a strong foundation for career development<br />

and progression and we are committed to developing<br />

our employees across all levels.<br />

Studying a vocational qualification and learning the role as a trainee<br />

or apprentice on the job, whilst being employed and gaining<br />

valuable experience is a great option for some. We see the value in<br />

these every day, and it’s why we’re big supporters of Trainee and<br />

Apprenticeship opportunities within our business, wider supply chain<br />

and subcontractor networks.<br />

Apprenticeships used to be restricted to young people, however<br />

that’s all changed. There’s no upper limit to the age of an apprentice<br />

and even existing employees can use apprenticeships to learn or<br />

improve their skills to provide career progression.<br />

How they work<br />

A typical <strong>Keepmoat</strong> apprenticeship will be office or site based and on<br />

a fixed term basis, generally ranging from 12 to 14 months, or 3 to 5<br />

years for Degree Apprenticeship.<br />

Our apprentices attend days at college, on the job observation and<br />

assessment days with 20% ‘off the job’ formal training funded by the<br />

Apprenticeship Levy. There are many recognised qualifications you can<br />

work towards with us, from construction and skilled trades to finance,<br />

IT, HR, marketing and more.<br />

We recruit and organise apprentices directly through our providers and<br />

our approved partners.<br />

Two-year rotational programme<br />

difference. It’s why we believe our two-year programme gives you the<br />

very best insight into our business and your strengths.<br />

areas of the business from land, commercial, construction and finance.<br />

Partnership team where you’ll get involved in social, environmental<br />

and community projects. Here you’ll develop the technical,<br />

professional and personal skills needed to build your career in<br />

construction.<br />

This is a very special opportunity. So we look for graduates who have<br />

a genuine interest in the homebuilding sector. You’ll also need to be<br />

motivated by a broad social purpose and have the attitude to make a<br />

positive difference to the world around you.<br />
