We have fabulous opportunity for you to join our brilliant team as a Housing Manager. Your role 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.

Ideally you will have people management experience combined with excellent customer service skills.  Line management of our caretaker who supports with the estate here at Rayners Lane estate.

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!

To us were not just a team we’re a ‘work family’. There will be 7 of us in the team and we don’t just love to support our customers, we’re there for each other too!  

Where you’ll work
You’ll work across North West London, but you will have specific responsibility for our properties and estates within the London Borough of Harrow. You will have responsibility for over 300+ customers across our leasehold, rented and shared ownership properties. All have differing needs so this is a fast-paced role where you will need to think on your feet and be able to successfully manage your time.

Working hours
As a team we’re critical to supporting our customers. The good news is that you will have a degree of flexibility of working either from home or in one of our local offices and we’ll give you the technology and kit to make that easy. 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 in what matters.

About you
You will have experience of working in a housing environment and of working in a Housing Management role. 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 contact centre, improving their access to our range of services.

You'll have a proven passion for delivering excellent customer service and a genuine desire to help our customers.  You will have experience dealing with conflict resolution and be an effective negotiator with the ability to prioritise and multi-task.  You'll also need a good understanding of housing, neighbourhood management, housing law, universal credit, welfare benefits and how this relates to the work of a Registered Provider.

As this is a mobile working and community-based role, you need to be able to drive, as well as having access to a vehicle insured for business purposes. Don’t worry, we’ll pay you expenses to cover this use!

When you join, you’ll need to have a valid standard 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.
