There’s a place for everyone.

Staff talking in an office

Navigating the job market can be a challenge especially with the widespread demand for experience. That’s precisely why we’ve redesigned our approach to Early Talent recruitment. Instead of solely focusing on academic achievements and past experience, we’re looking at your motivation and potential. We firmly believe that a wealth of knowledge and skills can be developed on the job itself.

Early Talent programmes are a great opportunity for those who are completing their education (from 16 and over), graduates, and others looking to enter a career or have a career change, and progress to the top of their profession.

At A2Dominion we have diverse opportunities in Legal, Property Services, Specialist Housing, Income, Neighbourhood, and more. We have roles available at our sites across Berkshire, Surrey, and the South-East.

We offer a competitive salary, and through apprenticeships and traineeships, everyone has the opportunity to study towards a professional qualification and put that learning into practice.

We offer an excellent package of rewards and benefits.

Rachel, Trainee Surveyor, Partnering TeamRachel cropped

Name of traineeship: HNC in Construction Management

Why A2Dominion?

I’ve been in housing for almost 11 years; A2Dominion offered a lot of diversity, inclusion, and opportunities not just for their employees but more importantly for their customers.

Why did you decide to undertake a traineeship?

I’d been working in the tenancy and support aspect of housing previously and always knew I wanted to develop my skillset to the property side of the business. In becoming a trainee, it has allowed me to bring my previous experience to the role whilst challenging myself and my own personal development.

What tasks or activities are you involved with?

I’ve been working with other surveyors and trainees inspecting properties for damp and mould; looking at outstanding repairs and complaints as well jointly leading on tenant alterations and pre void inspections.

What have you been working on which you are most proud of?

Complaint conferences have allowed me to learn about some interesting and complex cases. It gives us the opportunity to empathise, investigate and challenge ourselves on behalf of our customers.

What do you enjoy most about working at A2D?

I’ve really enjoyed working alongside so many surveyors who have such a wealth of knowledge. It’s great to be able to learn from their experiences.

Moses, Trainee Surveyor, Technical Team/ Property Services

Why A2Dominion?

Ever since I started working for A2D six years ago I knew it was an organisation that I could achieve my professional objectives with. With hard work and dedication my new role as a trainee surveyor is testament to the faith I had in myself and A2D.

Why did you decide to undertake a traineeship?

It started with a project relating to damp and mould. As soon as the aims of the project became clear I knew I had the skills required to make sure I’d be able to help our residents with these issues. The project also offered an opportunity for successful volunteers to train as a surveyor. I’ve always wanted the opportunity to work as a surveyor for A2Dominion.

What tasks or activities are you involved with?

  • Working alongside the legal team collating legal disclosure information.
  • Updating and providing reports from the LACHS system.
  • Managing the Disrepair inbox for any queries directed for the disrepair team.
  • Taking handover of decanted properties before disrepair works can be carried out.
  • Surveying properties with disrepair claims alongside mentor surveyor.
  • Project managing complaint cases, liaising with residents and the major works team.

What have you been working on which you are most proud of?

Creating a disrepair team folder where all disrepair, legal disclosure and claim information can be stored and referred to by the whole team.

What do you enjoy most about working at A2D?

The people.

Why did I choose A2Dominion?

I chose A2Dominion because when I researched about the organisation, there were 2 main factors that caught my eye. One being how well they look after their employees and that many of them stay on long term. The second reason being that they have had many apprentices before with many of them staying on long term. I noted that in the property services department, they’ve not had an apprentice before so I felt it was a great opportunity to make a name for myself.

What motivated me to undertake an apprenticeship?

I always felt that university was not right for me and that taking a route where there would be coursework instead of exams, would be much better for myself. A second reason is that I get paid while on the course and it allowed me to start saving for my future immediately, instead going into dept from university.

What achievement am I most proud of?

I’m very proud of my grades in college, the first year I was really struggling and got some very low grades. The second year I worked really hard to make changes and came out of college with an A and two Bs so the progress I had made through college had been really effective and this was an achievement I was really pleased with.

How has my apprenticeship impacted my career prospects?

My apprenticeship has impacted my career prospects in a very positive way. One day I want to work in real estate, and learning about property in this manner has really expanded my knowledge on the whole industry and allowed me understand the ways in which we organise works here.

Your advice to someone taking an apprenticeship:

My advice to someone taking an apprenticeship would be that if they are considering it, to go for it especially if you don’t want to do exams. Plus, as an apprentice you can work your way up the ranks at the organisation and be there long term while learning different aspects of the job

Rianne, Leasehold Property Manager, Residential Services, Operations

Meet RianneWhat is it about A2Dominion that makes you want to stay?

For me, a big part of the reason I stay is all my colleagues, my team I work with. It's like a family. When I first started, everyone was very welcoming. I didn't feel like I was a burden to anyone. Everyone's really supportive, helpful, friendly, everyone's approachable. And so, I settled in very quickly at the start.

Managers and colleagues will support you. They will provide encouragement and ensure that you are performing to your fullest potential. And maybe suggest an alternative route within the organisation.

The best part is the support and the encouragement to do well, even though it means they may lose you as a member of their team, they still root for you in another.

What opportunities have you been given to learn and grow since starting at A2Dominion?

I started as an apprentice so there's been many opportunities.

My first opportunity was as a leasehold coordinator. That exposed me to the world of property and dealing with solicitors for legal inquiries on property selling and managing so I got a lot of exposure into that world, very early on.

They recognised my potential and then I’ve grown within the business. I've managed to gain further qualifications, which have been funded by the organisation.

And there's always opportunities to learn more. So, I've gone up in the ranks. A couple of times my job role has changed, and I've recently started a new role.

I think there’s so many different departments and so many areas that you can delve into. Opportunities are endless.
