At Poole Housing Partnership we recognise that our position as a highly successful housing organisation depends on our fantastic team of people, who work hard, love what they do and do it with a smile.
We are seeking an enthusiastic, effective and committed Sheltered Housing Officer who is passionate about the delivery of excellent public sector housing services, to join our dedicated professional Sheltered Housing team while it is temporarily under-staffed, helping to deliver a first class service to our Sheltered Housing residents in tenancy management, developing strong communities and encouraging active residents.
You need to be experienced in working with older people or people with vulnerabilities and have the ability to assess needs for housing and support, and to undertake risk assessments. If you have experience in areas such as mental health, health and support services or housing law it will be an advantage, although we can support the right person to gain these skills. It is essential however, that you are someone who strives for success, who aligns with our values and who supports our desire to develop and deliver the best services possible for our customers.
You should have a flexible and customer-focused working style and have excellent written and verbal communication skills, be well organised with the ability to prioritise your workload and work effectively under pressure, including managing emergency situations should they arise. You will enjoy working in a mutually supportive and collaborative team environment but also have the ability to work well on your own initiative.
In return, we will give you a rewarding job, a fantastic working environment in a lovely location, great colleagues and excellent benefits including free parking, flexi-time, a generous holiday allowance and a superb pension scheme.
