About The Role

The Housing Options team is a busy statutory frontline service which seeks to sympathetically yet robustly assist those households who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. You will have the support of a number of different teams based within the service to help you deliver the best options for our customers.

This post offers the flexibility of working in a hybrid way. There is the option to have an office base as well as working from home.

The ideal candidates will be adept at nurturing and enhancing professional relationships with colleagues, landlords, and a multitude of agencies, ensuring our clients receive outstanding support and service.

Are you customer-orientated with exceptional communication skills?

We value candidates who place customers at the heart of everything they do, possessing the ability to adjust their communication approach to offer expert advice to a diverse range of individuals and organisations. Our team members are not just articulate speakers but also excel in written communication, ensuring clarity and effectiveness in every interaction.

Do you have an eye for detail?

We require individuals with a keen attention to detail, capable of gathering, collating, and analysing information efficiently and meticulously. If you have a talent for uncovering the facts and piecing together information to inform decisions, we want to hear from you.

Can you excel under pressure?

We are seeking resilient individuals who thrive in dynamic environments, demonstrating efficiency, empathy, and the ability to manage multiple priorities simultaneously. If you can maintain your composure and deliver results under tight deadlines, you could be a perfect fit for our team.
