If so, join us at Safe as Houses Care and enjoy a new career where you'll be part of an organisation that makes a positive difference to those who need it most.

As a Property Sourcing Agent, you will work 37 hours a week, which will see you enjoy remote working, with regular visits to potential land and building acquisitions, as well as company-wide meetings.

No two days will be the same as you will be accountable for sourcing both commercial and residential properties to be considered to be purchased and constructed into fit-for-purpose care properties in line with our regional & national demands.

It’s an exciting time to join Safe as Houses Care as we are growing and expanding the business. You’ll play an integral part in contributing to the ongoing pipeline of suitable property opportunities. This will be in line with care-related requirements highlighted by our national team of Business Development Managers.

You will join the Procurement team, which will see you assist the Head of Property Procurement in the initial appraisal of potential sites through requests, research and collating of required property data and reports, as well as supporting the first stages of the due-diligence process, prior to purchase and acquisition.

Additionally, you will work alongside the Business Development Managers to understand the needs of our care partners in specific areas. This will see you support the team by identifying properties which can be assessed against their needs and SAHPI`s own criteria.
