Fixed Term - 12 months (possible extension)

The Housing Options team is seeking to employ a Housing Options Officer. You will be working as part of a busy team, and will be undertaking a triage role assessing approaches for housing assistance to determine whether a duty is owed under relevant legislation.

Previous experience of carrying out frontline Housing Options work would be an advantage, but at the very least  you will have an understanding of the Homelessness Reduction Act and experience of working within housing or a housing related support service where you carried out assessments and provided advice. You should have an enquiring mind and enjoy problem solving,  have good negotiation and communication skills and be confident about your ability to manage challenging behaviour. You may be required to travel. A DBS check is required for this post.
