Tenancy Support Advisor Newton Abbot
18,800 per annum * Permanent, full-time

You will provide vital support to residents affected by benefit changes, giving them the advice and assistance they need to maintain their rent payments and remain in their homes.

This will involve remaining abreast of welfare reforms and implementing publicity campaigns, whilst targeting individual tenants likely to face difficulties. At the same time, you will undertake proactive work in our neighbourhoods ensuring people receive adequate information and advice to assist them in addressing the impact of welfare reforms, and actively assist tenants in making informed choices about the new bedroom tax, demanding a very enthusiastic and tenacious approach.

Previous experience in a housing or financial advisory environment would be extremely useful, and you will need broad knowledge of the benefits system. Naturally, you should bring real passion for transforming lives, great organisational skills, and the drive and determination to make a lasting difference.

In return, we offer an excellent benefits package with a contributory pension scheme, 25 days' leave per year plus bank holidays and a modern working environment.
