Housing Officer Areas

Each area has a named Housing Officer who deals with Tenancy Management for that area.  Each Housing Officer splits their work week between:

  • out of the office, carrying out visits and inspections in their area, signing up new tenants, etc
  • in the office, e.g. preparing for allocation or exchange sign ups, liaising with ELC's social work department, attending office based meetings with other staff or tenants*, etc
  • covering the Housing Officer duty phone line, to deal with tenants from any area who need Housing Officer assistance over the phone
