Housing Standards Officer

Akton Recruitment has an exciting oppurtunity for someone with experience dealing with Housing Standards Officer, to join the team of a local Authority in London

The Council has secured funding from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government’s Private Rented Sector Enforcement Fund. We want to appoint 2 x Housing Standards Officers on a temporary basis up to 31 March 2020 to carry out inspections of 100 unlicensed HMOs and commence enforcement activity against landlords / managing agents where the property is contravening Parts 1 or 2 of the Housing Act 2004. We are looking for candidates with experience in enforcing housing standards under Part 1 of the Housing Act 2004 and are confident in applying the legislative requirements for Houses in Multiple Occupation. We expect that the candidates will have a background in local authority housing enforcement work, either within a housing department or an environmental health department.
