Housing Options Officer

It is a very exciting time to join the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead with our service going through many changes and enhancements including being awarded 490k from MHCLG to deliver a comprehensive Rough Sleeper Pathway.

We are focused on continuing to improve our housing services, including implementing an on-line customer focused housing register which you will be responsible for administering and monitoring and we are developing a private rented sector offer.

This is a great opportunity to join an improving Housing Service working to deliver high quality, innovative, people-focused and value for money services. The service covers housing options, homelessness, housing policy, rough sleeper services, housing register, allocations and housing enabling.

You will be a key player within the housing options team, with responsibility for housing options cases from initial advice/triage through to sustainable housing options including the assessment of homeless applications and providing the relevant support and advice as determined within the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017. So if you are enthusiastic and self-motivated and are looking to take the next step in your career we would love to talk to you.

If you wish to discuss this position informally, please contact Tracy Hendren, Head of Housing & Environmental Health Services on 07920 070755.

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead council is geographically set in a major tourism area with tourist attractions including Windsor Castle, Legoland and Ascot Racecourse.

As a Royal Borough with the Royal Family on the doorstep, it is a desirable place to live and work. There are excellent transport connections to London (30 minutes by train) from Maidenhead with the Town Hall being a ten minute walk from the train station.
