We are a positive values-based social enterprise and looking for the following people to join our energetic hard working team:
Empty Homes Manager
HfG is recruiting a Dedicated Empty Homes Manager with financial support from the Scottish Empty Homes Partnership, funded by the Scottish Government and hosted by Shelter Scotland, to assist with tackling the problem of empty homes in the West of Scotland. This is a two year pilot programme, intended to demonstrate the value of a dedicated empty homes professional, the sharing of best practice to address empty homes issues, and to bring neglected empty properties back to life as much needed homes. There is possibility of extending the project subject to evaluation and achievement of outcomes.
As Empty Homes Manager you will liaise with empty homes officers in councils, take referrals from the Scottish Empty Homes Advice Service, from community reports, local knowledge and proactive engagement with owners where possible. You will work to clear criteria for assessing end use and viability of any empty properties, including analysing costs, scope of works required, and the needs of the owner.
You will work alongside other colleagues within the Assets Management Team to successfully deliver a programme of empty property purchase, refurb, communal repairs and preparation for the rental market.
The role is fast paced, no two days are the same and requires a responsive, highly professional approach when working with a variety of stakeholders including owners, factors, HFG tenants and other property industry professionals. Currently HFG owns around 250 properties which are managements by the Assets and Acquisition Team, led by the Director of Assets and Governance.
As part of the growth plans within Homes for Good, and as part of the National Empty Homes strategy, you will help us bring at least 30 homes back to life within this project.
This role presents an excellent opportunity to join an ethical & forward- thinking company with plans for growth, and the associated career opportunities which come with this. In -house and external training opportunities will be provided.
