Our client is a forward-thinking social organisation that positively impacts communities. They're also proud to create opportunities that make things happen - for people, families, homes and communities. They're a busy team with lots to do and can only achieve this if they've got the right resources so look for people and partners with as much enthusiasm and passion as they have for making things happen.

They are now looking to recruit for a Community Safety Officer to join them to cover a period of maternity leave (23rd October – 2nd September 2018). The role involves delivering effective community safety services across neighbourhoods and contributing to continuous improvement and development of those services.

The successful candidate will provide high quality customer focussed services; effectively, consistently, pro-actively and cost effectively. They will tackle anti-social behaviour, resolve breaches of tenancy and assist with community initiatives.  The Community Safety Officers contribute to the development of and assist in the implementation and delivery of strategic plans and neighbourhood promises. In addition, they develop and strengthen local partnerships and ensure that services are positively focussed on customers, communities and neighbourhoods.   

With knowledge of relevant housing legislation and ideally working towards a recognised housing qualification, candidates will have a background of working within a customer focussed environment and be able to demonstrate a basic understanding of current housing issues.  An understanding of the law and policy as it relates to anti-social behaviour is essential and you should demonstrate strong initiative and problem solving skills with the ability to work cooperatively as part of a team.   Due to the nature of the role, a current driving licence and a car available for work is essential.

As well as a competitive salary and a generous holiday entitlement, our client offers a range of benefits for a rewarding career including a health cash plan, pension scheme, child care vouchers and staff discount club membership. They’ll also make sure you get the training and benefits you deserve.

They are currently under represented by Ethnic Minorities, LGBT Groups and people with a Disability and would particularly welcome applications from these groups, however any appointment would be made on merit.
