Our Housing Officer - Tenancy Sustainment is fast paced and rewarding, which allows flexibility in the approach to the role, given the wide range of tenancies available to our customers. With demonstrable experience in a customer facing role, you will thrive in a position that deals with creating high-quality, tailor made tenancy sustainment offers.

We require a person who pays close attention to detail and has the ability to make informed decisions through investigating and recommending outcomes on requests for assignments, successions, and other amendments to tenancies. The successful person will carry out inspections on properties, communal areas and housing owned public open spaces to ensure that they are maintained and kept to a good standard and comply with fire safety regulations, and the role will liaise closely with other teams within the Trust and contractors to keep our standards exceptional.

The ability to identify housing management and household welfare issues and any breaches of tenancy is also crucial, and it will be paramount that these issues are referred on to the relevant colleagues or other agencies.

What really sets this job apart from the others is what we do as an organisation. There is rarely a dull moment in Housing.

  • Effectively engaging with a variety of customers, many of which are vulnerable and have complex needs, in ways which are best suited to the individual and developing productive relationships
  • Displaying excellent emotional intelligence and empathy
