A fantastic opportunity has emerged for a specialist Temporary Accommodation Homelessness Officer to join one of London's leading local authority clients in a full time (35 hours per week) temporary role.

Based in South London and lasting for up to two months initially, the client is keen to recruit a candidate who has performed a similar role before and has experience or knowledge in:

* Allocating temporary accommodation which includes the locating and placing applicants into bed and breakfast accommodation, taking into account the needs of the family and the available accommodation.
* Allocating property from the councils own stock and nominating to the various Housing Associations who provide leased property, ensuring an efficient and flexible allocation of resources to match the varying needs and demands of the clients and the service/
* Responding to requests from Senior Officers within services dealing with homeless people, households with substance misuse problems, mental health difficulties and often stressed and aggressive people.
* Ensuring that available properties are let and nominations made within the set times and targets and ensure applicants move promptly to and from temporary accommodation provided for them.
* Carrying out unaccompanied home visits to prospective applicants when issues are raised.

An ability to understand the housing needs of the client is very important in this role. A DBS would be ideal, as is previous experience of carrying out a similar role with a local authority client.

Only applicants who are immediately available, and who feel they meet the above criteria need apply as our client is keen for somebody to start week commencing 28/5/18.
