Do you pride yourself on providing an outstanding customer orientated service? Are you able to demonstrate an empathy with the needs of older/vulnerable adults? If so, then we’d be delighted to hear from you!
An opportunity is now available for an Independent Living Co-ordinator (ILC) to cover our Independent Living Scheme in Ilkley.
The ILC role is a busy one requiring high levels of energy and resilience, and the ability to work as part of a team. Your key priority will be to make sure our residents are safe through managing our buildings well and checking on the welfare of our residents. Your responsibilities will include generating demand through local marketing, building relationships with local organisations, letting properties, arrears management and tenancy enforcement of low level cases. As well as the local team, you will work in partnership with JJH’s specialist colleagues, our administrative hub and with Astraline which provides telecare and flexible safety services.
Successful candidates will demonstrate excellent communication and interpersonal skills, will understand how to deliver outstanding customer service in a housing environment; and have empathy with the needs of people aged 55+ and vulnerable residents. With previous experience of a similar role or transferrable skills, you will be comfortable working in a busy environment, where time management and organisational skills are vital. Working within professional boundaries and acting on your own initiative, you will be willing to adopt new approaches and alternative ways of working in order to deliver a consistently high level of service.
