As one of the industry’s leading events – Homes 2015 – fast approaches, a leading housing and support services business is preparing to unveil its unique initiative designed to alleviate challenges faced in the social housing sector.
At the event, East London based, Just Housing Group (JHG) will launch its new Service Hub. The company is opening up its extensive business offering to allow any social housing organisation to use the full range of services – as and when required – on a short term basis to fill any potential gaps, without the need for extensive procurement and lengthy contract discussions.
The hub has been developed in recognition of pressures faced by landlords to cover resource gaps at short notice and to maintain consistent performance within tight budgetary constraints.
Speaking about the Service Hub launch, John Swinney, CEO at JHG said: “We are delighted to be launching our new offering at the Homes 2015 event. The event focuses on the best management of assets, creating dynamic and sustainable communities and delivering value for money. This very much fits with our Hub offering and its objective of creating a ‘fill in’ service for landlords”.
“We believe the Hub provides an innovative solution to short term service and performance problems for landlords. It has been built around our expertise and structured to provide maximum flexibility for users.”
Housing organisations can benefit from the short term provision of JHG’s services ranging from interim management and filling staffing gaps to pure consultancy support to out of hour’s services.
The company promises to respond to any customer enquiry within one hour. Further to this, JHG have the facilities in place to provide an appropriate expert resource in the space of only 24 hours.
Established in 2004, JHG provides services and support in the supply, management and maintenance of social housing. The organisation specialises in the review and improvement of asset management services and has built a strong reputation in the setting up and transformation of Internal Maintenance Services (IMS). It has offices in London and employs 25 staff.
