Arun District Council are passionate and pro-active about tackling the number of empty properties in the district and are always looking at innovative ways to reduce this number. We are looking for a keen individual to join the award winning department who will take a head on approach to assisting the Empty Homes officer in cascading advice and encouragement to empty home owners into bringing their property back into use. You should be organised, meticulous and motivated to provide flexible administrative support to the Private Sector Housing Team.

The team deals with all aspects of Private Sector Housing, including Disabled Facilities Grants, minimum standards in rented accommodation, Houses in Multiple Occupation, Energy Efficiency and Empty Homes. This role would primarily provide administrative support to the Empty Homes officer which will include processing, payments and invoices, ensuring the IT database is kept up to date, providing figures for reporting purposes, preparing court documents and investigating complaints as to why properties are empty and assistance in tracing empty homes owners.
