Job introduction

We have an opportunity to recruit a job share with our existing Private Sector Housing Manager to lead and manage the service as we enter a new phase of proactive enforcement.

The service comprises Environmental Health Officers and Technical Officers to ensure that HMOs are licenced and enforcement to ensure private rented properties are safe, warm and well managed. The team are expanding to deliver a more proactive approach to enforcement.

For an informal discussion, please contact Alison Perkins -  Private Sector Housing Manager on 01273 292413.

About the role

Brighton and Hove is a vibrant and popular place to live with a much higher than average proportion of privately rented homes, including a significant number of Houses in Multiple Occupation.

We believe that our private rented sector should be well managed and that everyone has the right to live in decent, safe accommodation.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and highly motivated person to lead and manage the service, working alongside the existing Private Sector Housing Manager. You will share our drive to improve the management, standards and quality of private sector homes in the city. Experience of dealing with complex problems in a political environment and the ability to work under pressure is essential.

In return, we can offer flexible working arrangements, a great office location near the sea and excellent terms and conditions including staff discounts on good and services throughout the city. We can also offer great self-development and career opportunities through our People Promise commitments.

Additional information

Your starting salary will be pro rata if the above position is less than 37 hours 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. Please see for more information on the Skilled Worker Visa.

Company information

We welcome applications from all sections of the community but particularly encourage applicants from a BME or White Other background as well as those who identify as male or trans as these groups are currently under-represented in our Directorate workforce.
