Job introduction

We are looking to appoint a part time Accounts Manager.

This role offers an exciting and sometimes challenging opportunity to support, assist and empower homeless clients to maintain their accommodation and improve their onward life chances through correct financial management. Your role is also essential to maximize the authority’s income in an extremely challenging financial environment.

For an informal discussion, please contact Louise Lowery, Housing Options Managers on 01273 293087

About the role

You will be working as part of an established team of Account Managers helping to manage rent accounts and other financial matters on behalf of vulnerable homeless tenants housed by Brighton and Hove City Council.

You will need to be empathetic to the needs of our client group whilst also empowering them to deal with their finances. The role is a great introduction to working in a local authority environment and you will get to experience many areas of the business. You need to have good basic numeracy and literacy skills and a basic knowledge of the welfare benefit system and the issues which can impact upon tenants not being able to pay their rent.

On the job training and support will be offered to the successful candidates.

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.

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.

As part of Brighton & Hove City Council's ongoing commitment to redeployment, please note that this vacancy may be withdrawn at any stage of the recruitment process, without prior notice if a suitable redeployee (internal employee at risk of redundancy) is identified.
