Location: Agile Working, DE74 2SA
We’re on the hunt for two Income Officers to join our busy income team on our mission to deliver ‘Great Places’, 'Great Services’, and ‘Great Tomorrows’.
Your primary responsibility will be managing rent arrears, and proactively preventing debts from occurring or escalating.
You’ll follow set policies and procedures, whilst assessing individual customers’ situations and needs to identify ways of adapting our services in order to achieve the best outcome.
You’ll be able to demonstrate a customer-focused attitude, the ability to work on your own initiative and prioritise your own work effectively, along with the desire to continuously improve the service.
You’ll also need strong communication skills and the confidence to represent Futures at court and evictions. Due to the nature of the role a sound knowledge of the benefits system is desirable.
A full driving licence and access to a vehicle for work are essential as our service covers the Daventry and Amber Valley areas so travel will be required.
A few key points from our role profile
- Build and maintain effective working relationships with customers, and internal and external partners such as local authorities and the DWP to develop a seamless approach to customer service.
- Liaise with customers and partners to proactively prevent debts occurring or escalating.
- Follow the relevant processes and procedures in order to recover debts due to the organisation, ensuring that any legal action taken is appropriate and timely.
- Represent the organisation at Court and Evictions.
