We are SPEAR, a charity dedicated to helping homeless people in South West London find secure accommodation and work towards a positive future.

Please note, this list is not exhaustive as there may be other tasks expected to be completed at the request of the Property Manager.

You will be responsible for completing routine maintenance, undertaking repairs and tackling a range of other practical tasks across Merton, Sutton, Richmond, Kingston and Wandsworth. You will be provided with a Company Vehicle and Tools to carry out repairs.
