• Job description

    Onward Homes is one of the largest registered providers of social housing in the North West, with 35,000 properties across the region.

    We believe that everyone deserves a place to call their own, which is why we’re committed to building 500 new homes each year. We do more than just provide a roof over our customers’ heads, we’re here to make a real difference.

    In addition to creating positive spaces for our customers we continuously strive to create a positive and progressive workspace to enable our colleagues to achieve their full potential.

    We are looking for a Safer Neighbourhoods Specialist (1 post) to join our team in Greater Manchester.

    As a Safer Neighbourhood Specialist, you will be responsible for providing a consistent approach to community safety, blending prevention, diversion and enforcement in order to help communities deal with potential and actual anti-social behaviour (ASB).

    You will provide an effective contact for customers reporting ASB so as to create a culture of confidence in our services, investigating and responding to all ASB complaints. In addition, you will manage a caseload including initial assessment, investigation and legal recourse. You will also work collaboratively with colleagues in neighbourhood teams to update them on cases and issues within communities.

    Additionally, you will undertake research and investigate opportunities for action and best practice, and to identify funding sources, prepare bids, and to seek to maximise effective use of resources for safer neighbourhoods work.

  • Benefits

    To enable us to capitalise on the benefits of more flexible ways of working, for our customers, colleagues and to support sustainability, we have developed Onward ‘WorkSpace’. This is our approach that focuses on work being the thing that we do that makes a difference to our customers, not the place we go. This role is home based and there is no requirement to attend the office daily, but you will be required to attend neighbourhoods and/or sites as required to fulfil duties of the role. This successful candidate will be required to travel around the Greater Manchester region.

    As well as a competitive salary and a generous annual leave entitlement, we offer a range of benefits for a rewarding career including a health cash plan, pension scheme and personal development.
