Job description

Having just been awarded a Gold accreditation in Investors for People we are sure you will find us a very welcoming and inspiring bunch to work for and with.

Sovereign is an ambitious business with a strong social purpose - we're making huge differences to people's lives. Not simply providing affordable homes, we're shaping places where people want to live now and in the future.

While we're not-for-profit, and reinvest every penny back into homes and services, we are a major business, with the financial clout of a FTSE-250 business. We combine our financial and organisational strength, along with funding from government, banking and capital markets, to maximise our social impact.

The role - Housing Officer (Neighbourhoods)

We are delighted to be recruiting a superb Part Time (33 hours per week) and Permanent opportunity for a diligent and organised Housing Officer to join our team covering Berkshire. This role will combine a mix of agile working from home, out on the field and office working - there will be a need to be onsite in our Greenham hub as required but there will be good flexibility.

As Housing Officer, you'll use your knowledge and skills to resolve a range of Neighbourhood management challenges. Your duties will include:

  • Working closely with our residents to understand their needs, wants and challenges
  • Contribute to shaping sustainable neighbourhoods that are flexible in meeting the needs of our customers.
  • Responding to changing regulatory & statutory legislation and external requirements e.g. The Charter for Social Housing Residents: Social Housing White Paper
  • Helping to fulfil our landlord responsibilities and taking a pro-active approach to Health & Safety and Compliance
  • Pivotal in making improvements to the community

You'll balance your caseload with projects, aimed at keeping our resident's feeling safe and supported.

What you'll need:

To be a well rounded team player, ideally with experience of Contracts Management, monitoring compliance and Housing.

We're looking for someone who is target orientated, who thrives from meeting deadlines and is able to work under their own initiative. You'll need excellent communication skills and the ability to easily build relationships and rapport with internal and external parties.

Please note, you may be required to support Tenancy Management Team occasionally. A full UK Drivers License is also essential as you will be expected to make regular site visits throughout Berkshire and occasionally Swindon

What you'll get:

We have a fantastic suite of benefits too such as:

  • Industry leading pension, 12% matched contributions plus life cover
  • 25 days holiday + Bank holidays
  • Private Medical Insurance
  • A pot of £450 to spend on other discounted benefits of your choice such as dental plans and lots more
  • A suite of personal development programmes
  • Discounts with a huge array of partners such as our fab tech reward which allows you buy market leading technology and spread the cost with no interest
