Fixed Term until October 2022
Experience the extraordinary with a move to Folkestone & Hythe District Council.
Recognised by Best Companies as an outstanding organisation to work for, we have a real focus on staff engagement, health & wellbeing and development, and offer a benefits package that includes corporate membership and reward schemes, an Employee Assistance Programme and access to the Local Government Pension Scheme. While our modern offices are in the heart of Folkestone, with easy access to transport links, local shops, entertainment facilities and the seafront, we have a flexible working culture and support and encourage agile and home working where possible.
Working in a multi-skilled team focused on delivering core corporate services, you will primarily assist with maximising the income from rents, service charges and other monies by taking prompt and appropriate action to minimise arrears and non-payment. The role will involve contacting current and former council tenants to discuss rent arrears, taking relevant action such as setting up and monitoring payment arrangements, and taking recovery action where arrangements fail.
You will need to have some experience of working in a customer focused administrative support role and the demonstrable ability to meet service performance targets. Specific experience in housing, debt and tenancy law would be advantageous, but if you’re a fast learner with excellent interpersonal, communication and negotiating skills and the ability to work effectively as part of a multi-disciplined team then we want to hear from you!
