About the role

The Temporary Accommodation Service work to support homeless households throughout Brighton and Hove and in the wider Sussex area to manage and maintain their homes.  Due to an increase in clients successfully moving on from our accommodation we are now recruiting a team of re-homing officers to assist households to successfully move into the properties that have been vacated.  No direct housing experience is necessary but a commitment to excellent customer service is essential as is a knowledge of the housing and homeless situation both nationally and locally. 

Additional information

Your starting salary will be pro rata if the above position is part-time or term-time only.

Work Permits: we may be able to obtain a Work Permit for this post but this is subject to meeting the requirements of the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) Points-based Immigration System.

From 6 April 2011 the Home Office has placed a permanent restriction on the number of migrant workers that all Tier 2 (General) Sponsors can recruit. Due to the restrictions we cannot guarantee that individuals that meet the requirements of the Points-based Immigration System will be issued with clearance to obtain work permits.
