Prevention and Assessment Officer

Liverpool City Council is looking to recruit two Prevention and Assessment Officers on a permanent basis for its Housing Options Service within Neighbourhoods and Housing. Our Housing Options Service works with people in housing need and those who are potentially homeless to identify their housing and support needs. We work proactively with Council colleagues and external partners in order to provide tailored advice and assistance in order to achieve appropriate solutions for service users.

The main duties of the role are:

  • Prevention of homelessness using a range of measures available
  • Homeless assessments when prevention is not possible
  • Supporting clients into permanent, settled accommodation
  • Participation in duty rota system
  • Contributing to high quality service delivery and continually improving performance standards

The Service has an ongoing transformation programme in order to meet the requirements of the Homelessness Reduction Act. As part of this programme the Service relocated to a modern city centre location and established additional staffing resources.

We are therefore seeking enthusiastic individuals and team players to make a difference to the Service. There is opportunity to use and develop your skills within a fast-paced, progressive Service with a can do approach to delivery.

This is also an excellent opportunity to progress your career working for a large local authority.
