We have fabulous opportunity for you to join our really awesome team as a Housing Manager. Your roles in a nutshell, is to make our customers happy! It’s not just about providing our customers with a home, it’s about building relationships with them. This means that when it comes to those situations that are a bit difficult or tricky (which do happen from time to time) that we make it easier to deal with.

Yes, we collect rent, chase arrears, fill void properties, manage estates and deal with anti-social behaviour. But it’s so much more than that. It’s also about working closely with our colleagues to make sure that where our customers need support, that we help them to live their best lives!

About our team
To us were not just a team we’re a ‘work family’. Our manager is Anne Marie and has been working for us for over 20 years! There are 7 of us in the team, and we don’t just love to support our customers, we’re there for each other too! We all work hard but have fun too! Our team are looking forward to welcoming you and sharing their skills and knowledge with you!

Where you’ll work
You’ll work across Dundee and have the flexibility of working either from home or in one of our local offices. The great news is that we’ll give you the kit to make that easy!

Working hours
Our team’s support is critical to our customers. This means you’ll usually work 37.5 hours per week Monday - Friday. The good news is that you will have a degree of flexibility, as it’s the team’s unwritten rule that you attend the important appointments in life. So, whether it’s your child’s school play, your partner’s graduation, or to get your new fridge delivered we’ll work with you to be flexible. Our focus is on getting the job done, not your working hours!

About you
You'll have a proven passion for delivering excellent customer service and a genuine desire to help our customers. You will demonstrate effective relationship, negotiation, conflict resolutions skills and have the ability to self-manage and prioritise. You'll also need an understanding of housing, neighbourhood management, housing law, universal credit, welfare benefits and how this relates to the work of a Registered Provider.

You will be responsible for carrying out generic Housing Management activities including arrears, void management, estate management, customer involvement, income management, lettings and other related tasks. You will continuously improve services to meet challenging targets and obtain best value for customers, working in partnership with stakeholders, external partners and colleagues. You will also signpost our customers to our varied access channels within the contact centre, improving their access to our range of services.

Here at Home Group we have invested heavily in our future and use current and up to date equipment. You’ll be issued with the latest kit, which could include a Surface Pro and mobile. So it's really important to us that you are technologically savvy (or at the very least not a technophobe!)

It’s important to us that you have experience in carrying out anti-social behaviour investigations, a forward-thinking professional with excellent problem-solving skills.

We’re looking for someone who fully recognises the importance of multi-agency working and work in partnership with our key agencies including; Police Scotland, Dundee City Council Anti-Social Behaviour Team, Scottish Fire and Rescue, Environmental Health, Social Work, Registered Social and Private Landlords. As well as recognising when to refer people who are involved in antisocial behaviour to supporting agencies.

As this is a community based role, you’ll need to travel around to spend time with your customers. You could do this role using public transport, or if you drive and have access to a car that would also be amazing! (we pay your expenses to cover this use!)

When you join, you’ll need to have a valid Enhanced Check under the Disclosure and Barring Service. The great news is that we will pay for that to be done if you don’t have a transferrable one.
