Ref: 1264PEC

Our Accommodation service sits within the Housing Options Team providing accommodation solutions for applicants to whom we have a duty under the Homeless legislation. We are also committed to achieving the NPSS Gold standard for the Housing Options services.  

The whole service faces a range of challenges, with an increasing demand for accommodation without an adequate supply of housing.  Also, soon on the horizon, are the challenges which will follow the enactment of the Homeless Reduction Act 2017.

We are looking for an Accommodation Manager who will have the vision and creativity to develop solutions to address these challenges. With extensive knowledge of the legal framework for homelessness, and the skills to develop and manage a front-line service, you will be responsible for providing accommodation solutions and ensuring that the move on from emergency placements takes place in a timely and appropriate manner. You will be expected to make tough decisions, whilst managing and analysing performance, to develop our vision for the service into the future, and to benefit our customers and staff, whilst meeting our business objectives.

We offer a range of benefits which include flexible working, staff benefits, pension, and the opportunity to make a real difference to our local community.
