Here at Barnet Homes we are critically reviewing and revising our services to reflect the impact of the Homelessness Reduction Act. Now we've got an exciting opportunity for an exceptional person, who wants to play a leading role in reshaping our Housing Options Service.

If you're a leader, with expertise and experience working to prevent homelessness and meeting the needs of homeless clients, you could be just the person for us.  We need someone who can help us deliver our response to the fundamental statutory shift heralded by the new Act.  If this is you, we'd love to hear from you.

Our vision is to provide the best advice and support for our clients reflecting full compliance, for the Ministry, Barnet Homes, and the Council. Our target is to increase the number of households we prevent from becoming homeless together with finding more suitable, settled homes for those that we can't. 

Your job will be:
* To lead our teams, assessing clients' housing need, prevent homelessness and discharge the Council's homelessness duty. 
* To work with our accommodation specialists using their expertise to deliver innovative solutions to homelessness.
* To act as an advocate for our services, networking at a sub-regional level, and developing strong and effective relationships with our stakeholders and partners.
* To drive implementation of our Customer Experience Project plans for change, and deliver improvements to service quality, and customer experience.

How to apply

We encourage applications from talented professionals who are flexible, and confident in their ability to tackle

challenging situations in a fast-paced environment. If you have what it takes to be part of our team, please submit your application by midnight on Monday 22nd April.

Assessment and interview for shortlisted candidates will take place on Friday 26th or Monday 29th April.
