A superb opportunity has emerged for a Homelessness Reviews Officer to join one of London's most improved Local Authority clients in a temporary post until early 2019.

Based in West London, this is a full time role (35 hours per week, Monday to Friday) and the client is keen to recruit a candidate with previous experience of:

* Providing an effective, professional Review and Appeal service on behalf of the Housing Options and Homelessness Service.
* Reviewing decisions and agreeing the duty owed under the provisions of Part VII of the 1996 Housing Act and related Immigration and Asylum Acts, issue decision letters where appropriate and undertake limited statutory Part VII reviews.
* Assessing the merits of individual cases in respect of threats of judicial review and requests for interim accommodation, seeking legal advice where appropriate and making recommendations to officers and managers as necessary.
* Working professionally with service users, their representatives and other agencies involved with Reviews and Appeals.
* Working collaboratively with other teams within the Homeless Services to deal with Reviews and Appeals within the prescribed time limits.
* Representing the Council in Court as and when required.
* Liaising with the Legal Department to prevent any Judicial Review threats.
