* Advising and preventing homelessness by offering the correct advice to clients approaching the Council as homeless.

* Sound knowledge of Housing and Homelessness Law and experience in resolving complex housing problems
* Administrative skills to manage caseload and work effectively in a team of 20 officers
* Ability to deal with very demanding service users and partners
