About the role
This is an exciting time to join the Housing service as we look to increase the supply of affordable housing in the city and develop a new Housing Strategy. In addition to this our landlord service is developing to provide in-house repairs and continually looking for ways to improve the services provided to tenants and leaseholders.
You will need to be able to demonstrate sound project management skills, excellent collaboration skills and have an eye for detail to help the service achieve its aims. You’ll collaborate with teams across housing and beyond, to get the best outcomes.
Your starting salary will be pro rata if the above position is part-time or term-time only.
Work Permits: we may be able to obtain a Work Permit for this post but this is subject to meeting the requirements of the UK Border Agency's Points-based Immigration System.
From 6 April 2011 the Home Office has placed a permanent restriction on the number of migrant workers that all Tier 2 (General) Sponsors can recruit. Due to the restrictions we cannot guarantee that individuals that meet the requirements of the Points-based Immigration System will be issued with clearance to obtain work permits.
We welcome applications from all sections of the community but particularly encourage applicants from a BME or White Other background as well as those who identify as male or trans as these groups are currently under-represented in our Directorate workforce.
As part of Brighton & Hove City Council's ongoing commitment to redeployment, please note that this vacancy may be withdrawn at any stage of the recruitment process, without prior notice if a suitable redeployee (internal employee at risk of redundancy) is identified.
