You will ensure all housing management functions within the patch are delivered sensitively, effectively and professionally including making sure property inspections are regular and meaningful, mutual exchanges are progressed smoothly, issues like anti-social behaviour or neighbour disputes are tackled effectively and playing a key role in ensuring property improvement programmes are delivered in a way that is sensitive to tenants’ needs.
