You will support the Senior Specialist Advisor to identify ways to best improve our service, and report on key performance indicators, such as the number of households on the housing register and lets within a quarter.

You will be well organised with excellent communication skills and have a strong commitment to providing service excellence.Experience of multi-agency working in a housing or homelessness setting, or experience in allocations or housing management is required, also is an excellent comprehension of the complex needs of homeless clients, as well as the challenges this presents to agencies who work with them.
