A fantastic opportunity has emerged for a specialist income recovery officer to join one of our most improved housing association clients in a temporary role lasting for 2-3 months initially.

Based in Leatherhead in Surrey, the client is looking for a candidate who has experience of:

* Meeting personal and team arrears targets, and advising tenants on their weekly repayment plans.
* Carrying out home visits to tenants to assist with their repayments.
* Advising tenants on Housing Benefit
* Liaising with housing benefit departments to ensure rent payments are correct.
* Dealing with all aspects of chasing former tenant arrears.
* Preparing legal action including the preparation and issue of NOSPS and preparation of papers for the court officer.
* Using information technology systems, including word processing, to carry out duties in the most effective and efficient manner.
* Ensuring tenants maximise their income by claiming appropriate benefits.
* Ensuring that tenants have access to debt counselling services by carrying out close monitoring and taking firm follow up action to control debts.

This role requires the successful candidate to have experience in housing management and be highly self-motivated. Previous housing association experience would be useful, but not essential. Experience in reclaiming debt owed to the Housing Association by tenants in court would also be a real advantage.

Only applicants who feel they meet the above criteria and are available immediately (or on short notice) need apply for this post, as the client is keen for a quick start before Christmas 2018. Badenoch and Clark acts as an employment agency for permanent recruitment and an employment business for the supply of temporary workers. Badenoch and Clark UK is an Equal Opportunities Employer.
