Tenancy Relations Officer

  • Working Pattern: Full Time, Permanent
  • Hours: 37 hours
  • Salary: £29,055 - £33,135
  • DBS Check: Yes

The Job:

 In Northampton, we have completely transformed the way in which we tackle criminal, rogue and irresponsible landlords who knowingly rent out accommodation that is unlicensed, substandard or unsafe.

Our cutting edge, intelligence-led, risk-based, multi-agency approach to housing enforcement (and our development of our Officers as trained investigators) is turning heads and getting results. Earlier this year, we expanded our Housing Enforcement Team to make best use of our powers under the Housing and Planning Act 2016.

We are now looking to recruit an experienced Tenancy Relations Officer who has the skills and tenacity to prevent retaliatory evictions, resolve disputes between landlords and residential occupiers, sustain tenancies, investigate and prosecute criminal offences, and help tenants apply for rent repayment orders.

To meet the requirements of this interesting and rewarding role, you will need an in-depth understanding of the law relating to housing rights, including harassment and the protection from eviction. You will also need to have proven experience of gathering evidence, taking witness statements, carrying out interviews under caution and giving evidence in court or at tribunals.

If you want to be at the forefront of modern housing enforcement, and to make a real and lasting difference to people’s lives, we would be delighted to hear from you.  

The benefits:

• 26 days annual leave entitlement increase to 31 days annual leave after 5 years continuous service;

• Local Government Pension Scheme;

• BHSF Healthcare Scheme;

• Flexible Working arrangements;

• Reduced car parking;

• Number of discounts at local stores within Northampton.

Important Information:

Closing date: Monday 10th December 2018, 12noon

Interview date: Monday 17th or Tuesday 18th December 2018
