Worked in housing via an agency
Temp Housing Officer (Former Employee) – Stamford, Lincolnshire – 23 April 2019
I worked for a short time in housing as a housing officer via agency. I ended my contract early as very poor department.
They expect you out and doing visits as constantly emailed by managers telling you to hit your PI's.
Yet at the same time they are emailing you asking you to sit in the office on phone duty and basically wait for the phone to ring. Which the concept in its self is out dated like the management.
They cannot see that to focus on tenants you need time to be out, my past management experience saw this place was run poorly on day one. Simply to fix, following housing association concept, get office staff to answer phones and allow staff to be field based. In the end I left, very in the past housing council service.
Nothing comes to mind.
Stuck in the past council with managers that lack experience and vision.
