Housing Officer job descriptionPost Job
Local housing associations and authorities hire housing officers to oversee housing properties and keep in touch with tenants. Housing officers, also known as housing managers, also collect rental income, listen to the complaints of tenants, and handle repair work. Some housing managers specialise in handling specific clients such as minorities, the homeless, and those with disabilities. These officers may also interview and advise prospective tenants on the relationships between tenants and landlords
Attending court hearings, inspecting properties, handling grants and loans for home improvement, writing reports, keeping records, and interacting with other housing employees such as wardens and maintenance staff are other important housing management duties. Although studies in housing, urban planning, business, social policy, or law are assets in the housing management profession, formal education is less important than past experience in related fields and an ability to work well with people.
Starting housing management salaries range between £16,900 to £18,900, but senior housing officers can earn over £50,000. People frequently enter this profession after spending several years in other careers.
