Private Housing Technical Officer

£24,048 - £25,665

We are looking for a qualified and experienced housing surveyor / inspector with good interpersonal skills to improve private sector housing in the historic City of Lincoln.

The Private Housing Team aims to help people live healthier, better lives through safe and comfortable housing and healthy communities.

As a technical expert in the team you will design adaptations for Disabled Facilities Grants and deliver discretionary housing assistance programmes, inspect cases of disrepair in the private rented sector and seek solutions through informal negotiation with landlords and letting agents, and inspect Houses in Multiple Occupation setting appropriate licence conditions for their improvement.

While private housing experience is useful, training in housing enforcement and assistance law and practice will be given to the right candidate with construction expertise and strong interpersonal and problem solving skills.

You will participate in projects such as the Trusted Landlord Scheme and work alongside the successful Rogue Landlord Project in a new and proactive team.
