We're a passionate team
Here at Homewise, we provide people aged 60 and over with unique ways to secure their next home, enabling them to boost their budget and find the perfect property for their future.
We spend every day helping people to achieve things they thought weren’t possible and we are committed to being the very best we can be. We want to make a difference for our customers in their retirement years, and every individual at Homewise works hard to achieve this goal.
We are one team with one vision, to support our customers. We cannot succeed without each department giving 100% every day.
Our departments include:
- Compliance & QA - ensuring all policies and procedures are followed in line with company standards
- Finance - managing all purchases, expenditures, and income to support the success of the business
- Marketing & Partnerships - reaching new customers through key activities and trusted partnerships
- People (HR, Learning & Development, and Charity) - supporting every individual staff member and their careers at Homewise, along with managing charitable and social events for the business
- Performance & Planning - providing data, insight, technical systems, and project management to ensure successful performance across all areas of the business
- Sales and Property Teams - working directly with customers, estate agents, solicitors, and investors, to facilitate every Home for Life Plan purchase
Founded on family values
We’re a family-run business based in Worthing, West Sussex, and have been helping people move home since 1971.
Our team has increased at a rapid rate in recent years, from 30 staff in 2015 to 70+ today, and still growing! We continue to recruit, promote and create new opportunities for our staff.
As the company continues to grow, our core values and family focus remain the same. Our customers are at the heart of everything we do, and each department contributes to the journey of every customer.
“The entire team share the same beliefs and vision for positive outcomes for our customers and colleagues on a daily basis - built on ideas, energy and passion!”
“It's refreshing to work in a business that cares about people, both employees and customers. The office has a family feel about it, people genuinely care about it each other and want to help each other to succeed.”
“My career here is proof that you can develop at Homewise. The team has grown from 12 - 70 in my time and there are now multiple departments that didn't exist! Hard work, energy, skill and values get rewarded.”
