Merthyr Valleys Homes is committed to investing in our tenants and local community. We try to offer a range of opportunities within our organisation.
What is a work placement?
Work placements are an opportunity for individuals who are unemployed to build job specific skills and knowledge. Whilst on a work experience placement you will not be paid, however you will receive out of pocket expenses to cover your lunches and travel.
Different types of work placements
When some people think of a housing association they imagine working as a housing officer or income officer, but there are many other roles that contribute to the running of Merthyr Valleys Homes. Depending on what we have available you could experience a work placement in customer service, finance, communications, property services and housing management.
What’s the benefit of doing a work placement?
Our work placements will give you good work place experience, a chance to gain or brush up on skills and get back into a pattern of working. All our work placements have clear role descriptions and you will be allocated a supervisor for the duration of your time with us.
