New Forest District Council is looking for a Housing Grants and Improvement Manager. Your proven technical knowledge and effective leadership skills will ensure the Council successfully meets its responsibilities for all aspects of private sector housing, leading a team of officers and making a difference to resident’s lives. 

You will be responsible for the shaping of policies for implementing new powers under the HMO licensing scheme, managing the funding programme to enable disabled and vulnerable residents to remain independent in their own homes and taking an enforcement approach to dealing with poor conditions and management concerns in rented properties.

We are one of the largest non-unitary Council’s in the UK. Based in Hampshire, we have over 16 million visitors to the National Park, surrounding towns and villages and stunning beaches along the 40 mile coastline. This all contributes to a diverse range of challenging and interesting housing  issues to resolve.

What we can offer in return is a great place to work and a great team to work with. At NFDC we believe that all our employees make a valuable contribution to the work of the council and that’s why we encourage a trusting and open culture where each employee is supported and respected equally, where ideas are actively sought and self-development promoted. We also recognise the value of a highly motivated and engaged workforce and we actively promote a good work/life balance.

If you like the sound of this and have the ambition, knowledge and experience we’re looking for we would like to hear from you.

Benefits include:

  • 26 days leave (plus an additional 5 days after 5 years’ service)
  • Good pension scheme
  • Payment of professional subscription
  • Parking
