Job Description

Housing officer and social housing officer jobs can be challenging roles, but they come with job satisfaction as you will be helping those in need to find a home. You will be expected to give clients the best advice possible, find them appropriate housing and ensure it’s of an approved standard (so if you see mould on the walls or the door won’t shut, don’t let anyone move in basically).

As well as helping tenants find suitable housing you will also be expected to:

  • Interview applicants
  • Provide welfare advice
  • Oversee rent and take control with issues regarding payment
  • Represent the organisation at court evictions
  • Meet with other departments such as social services
  • Ensure properties are being maintained to a good standard
    Respond to tenants’ enquires
