We have fabulous opportunity for you to join our awesome team! We support our brilliant customers who have some quite complex backgrounds and support needs. They may have history of substance or alcohol dependence, offending, homelessness and some have ongoing mental health support needs. We help them with managing and maintaining their tenancies, with the aim of moving on to a secure, long term accommodation! Our customers live in in various Home Group properties across Chard, Street and Yeovil some of these are self-contained flats, and some share facilities.
You'll help our customers by focussing on tenancy support and will travel in the local area to meet with them and visit their properties. You'll help our customers to manage their tenancy and rent accounts, assisting them with housing benefit claims and making sure that these are received on their rent account. Where there is a need you will also issue and sign warning letters and Notices which may lead to attending court.
You'll also turn around vacant bed spaces so that new customers who need our help can move in quickly, making sure our service achieves maximum occupancy, and is health and safety compliant!
