Housing Options Officer (PRS Liaison)

It is a very exciting time to join the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead with our service going through many changes and enhancements including being awarded 490k from MHCLG to deliver a comprehensive Rough Sleeper Pathway.

We are focused on continuing to improve our housing services, including implementing an on-line customer focused housing register, a duty telephone rota for homeless households and we are developing a private rented sector offer.

This is a great opportunity to join an improving Housing Service working to deliver high quality, innovative, people-focused and value for money services. The service covers housing options, homelessness, housing policy, rough sleeper services, housing register, allocations and housing enabling. We are also just starting to provide some services from the offices but currently predominantly working from home and expect this to continue for at least the rest of this year.

You will be a key player within the housing options team, with responsibility for engaging the private rented sector to support housing options officers to discharge our housing duties. This post is currently a one year fixed term opportunity funded by MHCLG to support households move on from temporary accommodation to private rented sector accommodation. So if you are enthusiastic and self-motivated and are looking to take the next step in your career we would love to talk to you.

If you wish to discuss this position informally, please contact Marie Grele, Housing Service Manager on 07771 811934.

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead council is geographically set in a major tourism area with tourist attractions including Windsor Castle, Legoland and Ascot Racecourse.

As a Royal Borough with the Royal Family on the doorstep, it is a desirable place to live and work. There are excellent transport connections to London (30 minutes by train) from Maidenhead with the Town Hall being a ten minute walk from the train station.
