About the role
This is an opportunity to join the Housing Adaptations team, an integrated team of Occupational Therapists (OT) and Home Improvement Officers delivering major housing adaptations in both council homes and the private sector.
In this role you will be providing technical expertise and advice, carrying out surveys of council homes to determine feasibility and costing of proposed schemes, preparing scale drawings in appropriate cases and documentation for Building Regulation and Planning approval as necessary, and monitoring works in progress to ensure best value and customer care.
Your starting salary will be pro rata if the above position is part-time or term-time only.
Work Permits: we may be able to obtain a Work Permit for this post but this is subject to meeting the requirements of the UK Border Agency's Points-based Immigration System.
From 6 April 2011 the Home Office has placed a permanent restriction on the number of migrant workers that all Tier 2 (General) Sponsors can recruit. Due to the restrictions we cannot guarantee that individuals that meet the requirements of the Points-based Immigration System will be issued with clearance to obtain work permits.
We welcome applications from all sections of the community but particularly encourage applicants from a BME or White Other background as well as those who identify as male or trans as these groups are currently under-represented in our Directorate workforce.
As part of Brighton & Hove City Council's ongoing commitment to redeployment, please note that this vacancy may be withdrawn at any stage of the recruitment process, without prior notice if a suitable redeployee (internal employee at risk of redundancy) is identified.
