DFG & Housing Enforcement Officer
£31,272 – £33,879 (Band 6)
Eastleigh Borough Council is an ambitious and progressive Council, and we are recognised for our innovation and achievements whilst delivering high-quality service to our customers and the community.
We are looking to recruit a suitably qualified and experienced Disabled Facility Grants and Housing Enforcement Officer.
Areas of responsibility will focus primarily on building/surveying activities relating to the delivery of Disabled Facilities Grants for elderly and disabled residents needing to adapt their homes. You will be expected to carry out site and property surveys, prepare scale drawings and work schedules and specifications, and liaise with contractors and clients throughout.
You will need to have a good standard of general education and have a City & Guilds Level 2/3 in a building-related subject or equivalent. Experience of carrying out work related to Disabled Facilities Grants is essential. Experience of project management is desirable.
The role sits within the Housing Standards team and a proportion of your workload will be in the secondary element of work relating to Housing Enforcement matters. Experience in an enforcement role and, in particular, the Housing Health & Safety Rating System (HHSRS) is advantageous but not essential.
At Eastleigh, we are committed to supporting and developing all our staff and creating a culture that is inclusive, innovative and enjoyable. We offer excellent opportunities for continuous professional development and support our staff in maintaining a good work/life balance through our innovative flexi time system. We are an accredited member of the Living Wage Foundation, supporting our staff with a salary based on the cost of living. We also have excellent package of benefits, including:
- 25–28 days’ annual leave dependent on service
- Flexible working arrangements and ability to accrue up to 2 days’ additional flexi leave per month (subject to operational requirements)
- Defined benefit pension scheme
- Places Leisure, Eastleigh – 30% off full membership
- Confidential employee advice and support programme
- Car and season ticket loans
- Excellent working environment
- Support for continuous professional development
- Good work/life balance
If you are excited by this opportunity and feel you have the skills, experience and attitude we are looking for, we would love to hear from you.
