Housing Options Advisor
I am currently recruiting for an experienced Homeless Officer to join a major local authority in the Cheshire area.
My client is looking for someone to interview and assess homeless applicants or applicants at risk of homelessness. The objective is to develop a personalised plan, assess support and accommodation needs to prevent and relieve homelessness. You will oversee assessment and decision making in line with the Housing Act and Homeless Reduction Act. You will be required to conduct Part VII enquiries and decisions.
The ideal candidate will have experience of Homeless Reduction Act duties and assessments. Candidates will also have excellent case management and customer service abilities. 5 Grade C or above GCSE’s are essential for this position, although a housing qualification is desirable. Working with the public is an essential part of this position; previous experience of this is vital.
