Hours: 37 hours a week

Contract: Permanent

In Housing Options & Wellbeing we provide a range of housing services, including housing applications, advice and options. We are committed to meaningful joint working, the prevention of homelessness and continuous improvement in our services.

The increase in homelessness and rough sleeping is an issue that affects all services in all areas of the country.

Reporting to the Team Leader, you will support and develop others within the team to manage placements in emergency and temporary accommodation across Eastbourne and Lewes, as well as personally owning more complex casework.

You will also oversee the lettings and management of a number of commercial tenancies, a growing area for the councils.

You will be well organised with excellent communication skills and have a strong commitment to providing service excellence. Experience of multi-agency working in a housing or homelessness setting, or experience in letting and property management is preferable, also is an excellent comprehension of the complex needs of homeless clients, as well as the challenges this presents to agencies who work with them.

Hours and days may vary according to the needs of the service and you will need to be able to travel across Eastbourne and Lewes.

If you would like to have an informal conversation regarding the role, please contact Lucas Williams, TA & Commercial Team Leader via email at lucas.williams@lewes-eastbourne.gov.uk or phone on 01273 085206.
