East Suffolk Council is an exciting place to work and a great place to make a real difference to people’s lives, delivering vital services to a quarter of a million people across East Suffolk.

The Temporary Accommodation Officer Role sits within the Housing Needs Team (Housing Solutions) and plays a vital part in effectively managing the provision of temporary accommodation as part of the Council’s statutory duty to provide interim and longer-term temporary accommodation for homeless households. 

To succeed in this role you will need to be a problem solver with relevant experience of working with a range of statutory and voluntary organisations in a Housing related support context, and have a sound understanding and working knowledge of the Homeless Reduction Act 2017 and housing management issues.

Your primary base will be Lowestoft but there will be a need for you to travel at our Melton office as and when required.

In return, we can offer great opportunities for training and development and we’ll give you all the support we can to build a great career with our organisation. There’s also a superb benefits package including flexible working options, as well as a generous leave entitlement, discount scheme, pension scheme and free car parking.

Please read the job description and person specification before applying for this job.
