Guides To Departments

Want to know what some of the the different teams and departments do at Accent? Well you're in luck… the following sections provides a brief overview of what we do on a day-to-day basis.

As the technical and housing hub teams, we are the first point of contact for our customers.

In our technical hub, we help our customers with their repairs and maintenance service, while in our housing hub, we help customers with all their non-repair related queries, for example, managing their tenancy or if they need extra support. 

We are busy and energetic teams and we handle our customers' wide ranging enquiries through our multi-channel contact systems.


As the North regional team, we look after the 12,000 or so residents who live in our northern regions – the North West, North East and Yorkshire. We are based in offices in each of those locations – Burnley, Middlesbrough and Shipley – and we are focussed on making sure we create that excellent customer experience by making sure our teams deliver the Accent Partnership service offer to all our customers.



We are the East regional team and we look after the 4,500 or so residents who live in the eastern region. We are based in Peterborough and we manage Accent’s homes across Peterborough, Cambridgeshire and the surrounding counties. Just like our regional colleagues, we too work to make sure our residents get that fantastic, frontline customer experience we promise and, as most of Accent’s new homes will be built in our region, we are looking forward to offering that experience to lots of new customers.



We are the South regional team and we look after the 4,500 or so residents who live in the southern region. We are based in Camberley and we manage Accent’s homes across Surrey and the surrounding counties. Just like our regional colleagues, we too work to make sure our residents get that fantastic, frontline customer experience we promise by managing their tenancies, service and homes, and providing any extra support they may need. We’re the most distant of the regional offices, so we always welcome colleagues from other regions.

As the Homeownership team, we look after Accent’s outright owners, shared owners and leaseholders. Most people’s leases and agreements are individual and we can find ourselves dealing with a range of complicated queries, but we also aim to provide a great customer experience in all the same service areas as our colleagues who look after our renting customers. Our customers often share the same experiences, regardless of their tenure type – and we want to provide them with the same quality service.

As the Homes Team, we support our colleagues and work with them to deliver the Accent Partnership by ensuring our homes are maintained and invested in to the highest standard. We aim to provide our customers with a brilliant service, keeping them safe and secure at all times with four dedicated teams managing our processes, programmes, strategies and our commercial activities.


Homes Commercial

As the Homes Commercial team, we're responsible for reviewing the quality, time and cost performance of our voids and estate services contracts. We support colleagues to deliver an excellent customer experience with the commercial review and management of all contracts, recommendations for future service improvement and with support on void processing, repairs analysis and budget monitoring. We are currently reviewing a new voids standard.


Homes Programme

As the Homes Programme team, we lead on customer safety, fire safety and our planned programme. We organise and manage inspections, testing, remedial works, contract management and we provide support with specifications. We continually look to improve our performance in these critical business areas, and ensure works are completed to a high standard and on budget.


Homes Strategy

As the Homes Strategy team, we're responsible for reviewing how our homes perform. We want our customers to be happy and proud to live with us and we work closely with our colleagues to prioritise planned maintenance and quality standards. We work to remove any technical barriers and to develop strategies for future investment and asset management. We are currently working on a new energy efficiency strategy and reviewing a new Homes Standard. 


Homes Transformation

As the Homes Transformation team, in partnership with colleagues across the group, we review the team’s processes, keeping them lean and simple and continuously improving. We provide the data for managing performance and training for colleagues working on repairs, voids and planned works. Some of our current projects include the repairs process review and our asset management system development.

As the Income Strategy team, we are responsible for helping customers who have got into difficulty with their rent and supporting colleagues with more complex cases involving court and legal action. We deal with housing benefit and Universal Credit queries, help customers with budgeting and payment plans and try to find a solution which benefits everyone. When our customers’ circumstances change, first and foremost, we are here to support them.

We’re the Insight and Strategy team. We support the executive team, with the development of Accent’s strategic direction and corporate policy, and we look after corporate communications and business intelligence.


Brand & Communications

As the Brand & Communications team, we live and breathe the Accent brand through our internal and external communications. We develop customer and colleague comms, and support our colleagues to position Accent in a positive light. We manage both our external website and  intranet, and provide a design service for all parts of the Group. We’re equally good in a comms crisis or where there’s a great story to share…


Insight & Improvement

Customer insight is a key part of continuous improvement and helps put customers at the heart of the organisation and helps to ensure services are driven by customer expectation and need. Customer insight can be used to inform strategy and policy, to help allocate resources, to understand and manage performance, to promote services and inform service design

As the Land & Planning team, we develop Accent’s land-led development programme. We establish excellent working relationships with landowners, land agents and other key stakeholders to identify development opportunities which enable us to make a meaningful contribution to the housing crisis.

We want to provide a first class sales service. Our team is responsible for managing the sale of all Accent’s new build homes, including shared ownership and outright sale. When they are ready to sell, we work behind the scenes and directly with our new homeowners to ensure a smooth process from that initial enquiry right through to handing over the keys.

Business Finance

As the Business Finance team, we support the business and all our colleagues by providing sound financial advice and timely information through forecasting, budgeting and accounting to make sure the Accent Board and executive team has the right information and makes the right decisions to deliver the ambitions of our corporate strategy.


Corporate Finance

We provide a high quality Corporate Finance service to all colleagues encompassing payroll, treasury, taxation, financial accounts, financial planning and financial systems. We also provide specific support to our development colleagues through the provision of finance business partnering and it’s us who make sure the business has enough cash in the bank to deliver our promises at the same time as staying compliant with all statutory legislation.
