About the Post:

 

Here at Barnsley, we live and work by four important values: honesty, teamwork, excellent service, and taking pride in what we do. As part of our team, you can be sure we’ll do all we can to support you in being truly excellent. You see, we prioritise learning and enabling you to achieve your potential. So we’ve created a development process that lets you grow in the way that suits you - whether that’s training to be a leader, or learning flexibly online. That’s one of the reasons why we achieved IIP Gold, and why you’ll find your career here inspiring and rewarding. 

Working for us is exciting. We’re becoming a more modern, efficient and business minded organisation through planned change, improvement and growth. We’re stronger, more customer focused and more sustainable in the face of increasing pressures and reducing budgets, and there’s so much more we need to do together. This means significant change for us all, and we all have a part to play. 

We’ll continue driving growth, helping the people most in need and helping local communities to thrive. We’ll generate more of our own income through business rates and council tax. We’ll plan long term so that we can understand and respond to future challenges. Although financial austerity is still upon us, the opportunities to grow, to do things differently and to use new technology are really positive.

We are seeking a highly motivated and committed individual to join the Disabled Facilities Grants Team.

The Project Officer post will be responsible for dealing with Disabled Adaptations to properties of residents who need help and support to enable them to remain living in their own homes safely and independently. This will involve assessing Occupational Therapist referrals, undertaking home visits to perform property surveys, formal grant applications and financial assessments. It will also include specifying schedules of work, liaison with contractors and suppliers, problem solving and inspection of works to ensure high standards are achieved. You will also need to collect, monitor and analyse data, so that it can be reported to the Management Team when requested.

You will need to demonstrate that you are self-motivated, a good team player, computer literate, have strong written and verbal communication and have excellent customer focused qualities.

The ideal candidate will be able to evidence an awareness of the technical and construction issues involved to allow them to help design and oversee adaptations for disabled people, such as level access shower adaptations.
