A fantastic opportunity has emerged for a specialist Housing Manager to join one of Adecco's public sector housing clients in a full time (37 hours per week), temporary assignment for the next 3-6 months.

All applicants must possess previous experience of:

* Managing up to 5 staff (preferably Housing/asb/neighbourhood officers) in the public sector
* Leading, motivating and managing the Neighbourhood teams to deliver excellent tenancy management and estate inspection services for residents.
* Managing performance targets, producing statistics and analysing team performance and external trends to continuously improve service delivery.
* Developing the Estate Inspection team to enable it to fulfil its task of improving the estate environment.
* Co-ordinating team meetings and delegating work related tasks to the tenancy management team.
* Resolving complex anti-social behaviour, leasehold and rent arrears cases.

Based in Gateshead in the North-East of England, this is a hybrid working role so you will only need to be in their office once or twice a week but must be able to access this office at short notice when necessary. The client is looking for a member of staff who has experience in developing a professional customer-focused service which meets the needs of general needs residents (many of whom may be vulnerable) and responds promptly to enquiries and complaints. Being a car driver and owner is essential, as you may need to pop out on property visits with your small team when necessary.

Only applicants who feel they meet the above criteria need apply. Ideally applicants will be immediately available or available on a short notice period (1-2 weeks' maximum), as the client is keen to move quickly in filling this position due to a member of staff leaving shortly.
