You will:

  • demonstrate talent, ambition and a real interest in the social housing sector with the ability to manage some work with minimal supervision.
  • provide advice and representation in respect of a wide range of areas to include Anti-social behaviour, Injunctions & Possession, Disrepair, Leasehold & Service Charges, Equality Act and Human Rights matters, and on all areas impacting on RP's housing management function.

The client will invest in your career, and help you to become a recognised expert in your own right. You will have plenty of one-to-one development and encouragement from your supervising partner, and the wider team.

The client will ensure that you receive a good level of client contact and early responsibility.

ABOUT YOU

With 1pqe or more you will have gained extensive experience in social housing and are now seeking further challenges with the potential to become a big name in Housing Management.

You will be able to use your initiative, and be a forward-planner, anticipating your clients' needs in advance wherever possible.

The ability to work as part of a friendly team and deliver excellent client service at all times is also essential to this role.

You will demonstrate talent, ambition and a real interest in the social housing sector. The client expects you to have built up enough experience to be able to manage some work with minimal supervision.
