Local Land Charges Officer
Our plans for Barnsley’s future are big. As we continue to make further ambitious changes to services, your dedicated support to the local land charges service will be an important component to our success. You will help us deliver accurate customer focused services to the wider local property market and the Land Registry.
Creativity, ambition and a focus on people. That’s what matters at Barnsley Council. Our award-winning council is on an exciting journey of change. It’s all about putting local people at the heart of everything, listening to and doing good for our communities. We’re now more innovative, more efficient and provide better value for money. The changes are clear to see - from new businesses and jobs, to improving school results and to museums being recognised for their community engagement.
Shape a better future with us
We’re thrilled to have achieved Investors in People (IIP) Gold status for how we lead, support and develop people. Now we’d like you to be part of our success and help us take change further. Join us on our journey to a brighter future. By working together, with each other and with our communities, we can take pride in improving lives. Let’s make a better Barnsley for everyone.
Your role in our journey
As a Local Land Charges Officer you’ll carry out a range of work to ensure that customers requesting local land charges searches receive quick and accurate replies. Your responsibilities will span everything from inputting initial search data, answering customer queries on the phone, liaising with internal staff and maintaining register information.
What you’ll need
To join us, you’ll need basic numeracy and literacy skills and be willing to work with and learn the local land charges computer system. Just as importantly you will be customer focused, with a keen eye for detail and accuracy and committed to meeting deadlines. Working in a small team you will need to be flexible to achieve targets. An understanding of the wider residential conveyancing system would be an advantage but not essential.
A lot to look forward to
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 in person, 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.
