The TMO Services Team within Hackney Council is looking for an experienced professional to work with our TMOs to deliver excellent services to their residents. Housing is a top priority in Hackney, this is a fantastic opportunity to develop your management skills as part of a small team that works closely with TMO staff and board members as well as with other departments and teams within Council.

As one of our TMO Liaison Officers, you will provide strategic and operational support to existing TMOs in Hackney, and develop and maintain an effective client monitoring system. You will advise on and monitor TMO governance, financial performance and service delivery. You will also support and monitor the progress of residents’ groups that wish to become TMOs and provide expert advice to TMOs who wish to take on additional responsibilities.

We need someone with excellent written and verbal communication skills who can develop effective professional working relationships with both internal and external stakeholders at all levels.  You will need to be able to analyse and evaluate data, understand complex legislation and give clear guidance and advice. You will also be able to resolve complex issues or complaints.

This role would suit someone with a background in housing, governance, compliance or finance. The successful candidate should have a good understanding of, and a commitment to, social housing and resident involvement.  You should also be familiar with a range of IT packages.

To thrive here you will need a good eye for detail and a flexible approach. The nature of the work means you will spend a lot of your time away from your desk working with TMOs and other departments and teams within Council. You will also be required to work some evenings and weekends. You should be passionate about providing good quality housing services and be keen to bring new ideas to improve our internal systems and processes.
