A superb opportunity has emerged for a housing officer to join one of Greater London's highest performing local authority clients in a temporary booking which will be full time for 36 hours per week.

Based in North-West London, our client anticipates an initial 3 month contract with an expected interview date week commencing 1/9/18. This is a generic role covering all aspects of housing and the successful candidate will be required to handle anti-social behaviour case management queries, as well as rent arrears which is a major part of this role. This will be based on incoming queries raised by tenants and local authorities with regards to the local area.

The client is keen to recruit a tenancy management specialist with strong experience in:

* Providing the main point of local contact with tenants and leaseholders by receiving and acting upon tenants and leaseholders complaints.
* Transferring tenancies in routine cases, in accordance with relevant Council policy.
* Investigating and recommending management transfers, preparing reports for Area Housing Manager/Senior Housing Officers where appropriate.
* Carrying out accompanied viewings and signing of new tenancies ensuring all necessary documentation and records are produced.
* Advising new tenants of the provisions of the tenancy agreement, local facilities and the proper use of appliances and installations.
* Issuing orders for routine repair work in accordance with Council procedures including pre and post inspections and the checking of invoices.
* Clearing rent arrears

Tenancy queries that will range from processing service care queries, tenancy amendments, joint tenancies and mutual exchanges. An Enhanced DBS would also be very desirable, as would a car driver.
