  1. You will have a sound foundation to your technical knowledge and be able to deal with a range of private sector housing issues. Ideally, you will have experience in processing Disabled Facilities Grants, undertaking house condition surveys, identifying defects in residential properties and applying the Housing Health and Rating System.

    The successful candidate will have an empathetic, non judgmental approach when dealing with customers and will be able to develop, manage and drive long lasting relationships with Social Services and contractors. A genuine interest in people is essential and you must be passionate about using your housing knowledge and experience to achieve the aims of the Better Care Fund and be able to demonstrate a high level of commitment to customer care and quality. Ideally you will possess a formal qualification in construction, building surveying or environmental health or be willing to work towards a qualification in one of these areas.

    Applicants must have a sound working knowledge of IT and be proficient in the use of Microsoft Office applications. Experience of using Uni-form/Renovator and IDOX or similar software is desirable but as technical drawing forms a large part of this role experience of using technical drawing software such as CAD (auto CAD Lt v2014) is essential.

    Private Sector Housing is a customer focused and supportive team and this role assists in its current emphasis on integrating housing and health services.
