About us

The Sovini Group is a property, construction and facilities management company.

The members within the Group work together to support thriving, inclusive communities, charitable causes and to increase the supply and quality of affordable housing and related services.

Formed in 2011 The Sovini Group comprises both not-for-profit organisations and commercial companies. We are distinct from conventional housing groups in that our commercial businesses are free to generate profits and trade externally. 

Those profits can then be invested in our not-for-profit members to increase the supply of social housing and improve the communities in which we work.

What employees say

I recently celebrated 40 years of work. I was surprised and delighted to receive an invitation to a special lunch from our CEO and MD to celebrate this occasion, I enjoyed this special lunch with my team members, and I was made to feel valued and appreciated. I was also presented with a gift. The fact that the CEO took the time to personally thank me for my 40 years’ service is something I will never forget.

I am developing professionally working here.

People here are treated fairly regardless of their race or ethnic origin.

This is a friendly place to work.

I'm proud to tell others I work here.

There is a "family" or "team" feeling here.

Taking everything into account, I would say this is a great place to work.

Regardless of their role or the company they work for, all employees within The Sovini Group live by a common purpose: creating opportunity and changing lives.

What inspires us

Employees across The Sovini Group enjoy a host of great benefits throughout the year.

Bill Merritt, ASB Officer at One Vision Housing, said:

“When I joined One Vision Housing I was pleasantly surprised to find that they had a staff incentive scheme in place. I have never worked in anywhere were this type of scheme has been in place. The fact that all employees receive the bonus if they achieve certain targets means that in April employees are all fired up for the following year!”

We hosted our very own festival for employees across the Group in the Summer – Glastini - complete with local music acts, street food, gin bar and festival glitter.

Hannah Clinton, Senior Scheduler at Sovini Property Services said: 

“I had a really good time. The organisation of the location, food and drink was excellent and made it really easy for everyone. It was a great opportunity to get to know people and I hope we can do it again next year.”
