Housing Solutions Officer- Accomodation
Are you passionate about and highly committed to helping people find, keep, maintain and live independently in their own home?
Kirklees Council’s Housing Solutions Service delivers a range of services aimed at preventing and relieving homelessness for individuals and households across the district. The service adopts a person-centred, creative early intervention approach to solving housing problems, with our functions including:
- Advice on a range of housing options and how to access them
- Assessment of housing need and homelessness
- Provision of emergency homeless accommodation
- Outreach and wraparound support for vulnerable rough sleepers
- Information and advice to private sector tenants and landlords
- Housing related support to enable people to maintain their accommodation
We are looking to expand our service to help meet the challenges of post-pandemic housing pressures. We are therefore seeking professional, enthusiastic Housing Solutions Officers with a ‘can-do’ attitude who can support the delivery of positive outcomes within our busy teams.
We have a number of Housing Solutions Officer vacancies across four different teams.
Our Housing Solutions Officers will work directly with customers face to face and over the phone to identify and assess their housing needs, provide information, advice and support, and develop a range of solutions to help customers resolve their housing needs and problems. This requires working closely in partnership with a range of internal and external agencies.
If you want to join a dynamic, high-performing service and contribute to our shared outcomes of enabling people to live independently and live well, then take a look at the teams where we currently have vacancies. You can apply for Housing Solutions Officer vacancies in one or more of the teams described below, but will need submit separate applications for each team.
