We employ over 1900 people to manage and develop our large portfolio of nearly 56,000 homes serving over 75,000 customers across London, the East Midlands, Southern and the East of England.

This role

Following the successful introduction of these roles last year Metropolitan Thames Valley is looking to expand its permanent team that offers supported housing to vulnerable adults in Nottinghamshire. Based from our Head Office in Nottingham you will be required to support residence throughout the county. Your primary objective will be to offer tenancy advice to residence enabling them to better manage their supported housing arrangements.  This is a part time role working 18 hours a week over 3 days.

This is not just a socially rewarding job, we also value you as part of the team and make sure you are rewarded for your commitment to our customers. You will be a key support to tenants maintaining a safe and secure environment at home, and advising accordingly.

As travel is an essential part of the role expenses from the office will be paid in line with the company policy.
