Homelessness Advice Officer

Posted 6 February by REED Property & Construction Easy Apply Featured Ended
This Council runs a very busy housing advice service with a real focus on prevention of homelessness. The service works on a drop in basis and officers can expect to be on duty, and with customers around 75% of the time. The role of a housing advice officer is very much a front line one. Each officers will have their own case load and will be responsible for the full prevention work of each case. Only if prevention is going to be unsuccessful will we move into Part 7 of Housing act 1996 as amended.

We do not currently have a back log of cases that need processing. Instead we are working hard to prevent homelessness in the Borough and preparing for the upcoming legislation changes and introduction of Homeless Reduction Act 2017. We are looking for someone on a temporary basis to help us out whilst we restructure and prepare, and to ensure we do not start 1 April with a back log of cases. We have some staff shortages at the moment so it is import that we fill these gaps to prevent crisis.
