Vacancy Description

The London Borough of Waltham Forest is fiercely ambitious. It wants to make sure each and every one of its residents enjoys a quality life in London.

Over the past few years, Waltham Forest has changed drastically as a place. Good schools, great parks, excellent culture facilities, mass regeneration and budding community entrepreneurship are making it a place that people want to call home.

Over that period of time, Waltham Forest as a council has also changed drastically, and despite the challenges of austerity, the organisation has seen its highest ever levels of resident satisfaction. As funding reductions continue, Waltham Forest is creating a council for the future.

Housing is huge on the council’s agenda and to reflect this, the housing service recently joined the families directorate to ensure families are supported to be more resilient and services are joined up. The council sees a strong link between housing, health and social care and is looking for the right people who share this vision.

About the role

You will deliver a comprehensive housing advice, options and homelessness prevention service to residents with housing issues across all tenures and assess applications under the relevant homelessness legislation.

You must be able to work constructively with other services and agencies to negotiate successful outcomes for customers. Up to date detailed knowledge of homelessness legislation, guidance and case-law and knowledge of the broader housing environment are essential.
