Title: Housing Officer

About the role:

Our client is a small general needs housing association with 165 homes located in Cirencester Town and the surrounding rural communities for the past 70-years.

Even though they are small, they provide comprehensive services to customers that are equal to the best in class large social housing providers and meet the requirements of their regulator. They offer additional value to customers by appreciating that every situation is different and focusing on understanding and caring for residents’ individual housing needs.

As Housing Officer you will interact with tenants to understand the circumstances that have led to their incurring rent debt and help them reduce their arrears.  You will support delivery of repairs services by facilitating appointments and managing information to document landlord health and safety.
