About Derby Homes


What is it like to work for Derby Homes

Wellbeing
Wellbeing
There is a work life balance scheme in place that ensures employees have the flexibility to accommodate personal or medical appointments. They also offer flexible hours, home working and if they are required to work additional hours they can opt to take this as time in lieu rather than being paid. Employees are invited to bring partners to the annual party and to the annual Celebration of Success Event.

There are various events organised to allow employees to socialise with one another and have fun. These have included the staff party, team away days and a staff conference. Teams are recognised with a team reward scheme.
Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back
The organisation makes a big effort to put fun into raising money for charity. On the recent Children in Need Event they dressed up for work in outfits from the 60s, 70s and 80s. They also assist with arranging work placements for tenants on their Home2Work Scheme. They have two people in their dedicated energy team who are responsible for all of the organisation's energy management and recycling issues. They have installed energy monitors at headquarters and are investigating energy management systems for main office and all associated offices and buildings. Facilities exist for recycling glass, plastic, cardboard, paper, toner and printer cartridges and batteries. As an organisation they plant a number of trees to help off-set their carbon footprint.
