    With a proven track record of developing targeted housing and homelessness initiatives, you will be responsible for the managing officers working across housing advice, homelessness, HERO, Housing Register and landlord initiatives. You will provide strategic, operational and legislative leadership to the team, ensure effective customer focused services are delivered at all times, whilst driving efficient partnerships with others. This Council prides itself it finding creative ways to develop new affordable housing opportunities. You will work closely with other Council services and partners to take forward residential opportunities to provide suitable homes for people on low income.

    You must have excellent verbal, listening and written communication skills at a strategic level to work with partners, respond to complex customer queries, develop management reports and lead the team to carry out the Council's statutory duties for customers at risk of homelessness. You must have an excellent understanding of Part VI and Part VII of the Housing Act 1996 to review and advise on homelessness and formal housing decisions.

    You must be an enthusiastic and driven person who can develop targeted initiatives to prevent and relieve homelessness, motivate others and inspire the team to deliver customer focused housing services.
