This Council is seeking to appoint a highly motivated and conscientious individual to support their housing team.

Based in the offices in Thrapston, you will work in our small but busy and proactive housing team.

You will carry out a wide range of work, from providing initial housing advice to customers, to research and gather information, to assisting with our busy development programme.

This is a part-time post (18.5 hours per week, preferably over 5 days) and in order to meet the needs of the service, you will ideally work between 3 and 4 hours per day, with an anticipated start time of 10am.
