Sevenoaks District Council is recognised as one of the best places to work in the UK, having recently retained our Platinum accreditation under Investors in People. We are the only financially self-sufficient Council in the country and have an ambitious agenda to do more for our communities.
We are looking for enthusiastic and self-motivated people to join our busy Benefits service based in Sevenoaks. We administer over 12,000 housing benefit (HB) and council tax reduction (CTR) customers in a joint partnership between Dartford Borough Council and Sevenoaks District Council.
You will ideally have current experience of calculating and assessing all types of HB and CTR applications and an up-to-date and comprehensive knowledge of HB/CTR rules and regulations. However, we will consider applicants that do not have this knowledge but do have current experience of general office work and have good numeracy skills.
You will need a commitment to ensuring customer satisfaction, optimum efficiency and effectiveness with a flexible approach.
Please note that the successful candidate will be subject to a Baseline Personnel Security Standard (BPSS) check.
If you would like more information or have an informal discussion about the position, please call Heather Gaynor, Benefits Manager on 01732 227435 or Joella Preston, Senior Benefits Team Leader on 01732 227063.
Interview Dates: 18th & 19th July 2019
