You will have the ability to lead our committed Private Sector Housing teams working towards this objective and to provide an excellent service to customers. You will also apply your excellent interpersonal and influencing skills to strengthening relationships with private landlords and letting agencies to help meet housing need in the Borough. This will include developing initiatives to increase the supply of privately rented accommodation, particularly through the Council’s “Let’s Rent” service.

The regulations restrict the post holder from undertaking canvassing on behalf of a political party or a person who is or seeks to be a candidate or speaking to the public at large or publishing any written or artistic work that could give the impression that they are advocating support for a political party.
