An opportunity has arisen for two enthusiastic, innovative and self-motivated individuals to join the Private Sector Housing Team. The team are committed to improving housing conditions and protecting residents within our area and make full and appropriate use of legislation to achieve this goal.

However, we would also be happy to receive applications from candidates who have the ambition to embark on a career within Private Sector Housing. If you have the right background knowledge and level of experience, further training will be provided. As a career grade post, the starting salary would be based upon experience and qualification.
