A fantastic opportunity has emerged for a Private Rented Sector Officer to join one of Adecco’s key public sector clients in a temporary role for the next 6 months.
The right candidate will increase the supply of private rented properties available to clients of the Council’s Housing Options Team. You will proactively develop links and positive working relationships with private landlords and letting agents to source homes in the private rented sector. By doing so, you will contribute to a proactive service for people who are homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless, by maximising opportunities for them to rent privately.
Based in Haywards Heath in West Sussex but with a requirement to travel around other boroughs locally, this is a full time role (37.5 hours per week, Monday to Friday). You will ideally have experience in local authority housing and preferably in a similar role where you have assisted customers in seeking and securing privately rented accommodation. You will also provide a tenancy sustainment service to tenants who have been assisted under the Council’s Rent in Advance and Deposit Guarantee Scheme, liaising with their landlords and the Council’s Housing Benefit Department where necessary to resolve problems and prevent homelessness.
Other key elements of the role include:
The successful candidate will not need to come into the Haywards Heath office everyday (only 2 days each week), but will need to be prepared to travel regularly across different boroughs as they will need to attend property inspections etc as well as meeting with customers and other members of staff.
Only applicants who are happy to work in and around the Haywards Heath area of West Sussex, are available to start on short notice (2 week’s maximum) and feel they meet the above criteria need apply for this role. Please note, a car driver and owner is essential.
