HOUSING OPTIONS OFFICER (32 hours a week)
Grade E £22,911 - £26,317 (pro rata)
If you are committed to preventing homelessness, then this vacancy is a great opportunity to join a highly motivated and committed team that’s determined to do just this. As part of the Housing Options Team, you’ll create plans with local people threatened with homelessness designed to prevent them losing their homes and tailor this to their individual circumstances.
You will have experience of dealing with homeless and vulnerable people or providing housing-related support, possess good interpersonal skills, be able to work well under pressure and ideally will have experience of working with other agencies to stop people losing their homes.
Whether you are negotiating with someone’s friends and family to keep them at home, advising landlords of their responsibilities as well as their rights, or thinking of imaginative ways to prevent homelessness, you will be determined to provide a service of which everyone in Erewash can be proud.
In return we offer a range of benefits such as flexible working, free parking across the borough, a car user allowance (if applicable), access to a contributory local government pension scheme and subsidised gym membership.
This post is 32 hours a week and the intention is to do this over four days, although we would welcome applications from interested people who would like to discuss a different pattern of working.
