Due to new project funding, a vacancy has arisen for an experienced housing caseworker to join the active and experienced team at Derbyshire Law Centre. We are looking for someone who can preferably start immediately and the post will be for a fixed-term period, 2 years from start date.
The post will consist of 2 different roles. Part of the role will be working in conjunction with funding local authorities to work on disrepair cases. The postholder will work to encourage local authority tenants to report repairs through the Law centre and make any relevant damages claims through the Law centre. There will be development work publicising the legal advice that we can offer to tenants and taking on disrepair claims against landlords including injunctions and claims for damages. The other part of the role will be working on a new project funded by The Lloyds Bank Foundation to support residents in the Bolsover district who are experiencing homelessness and housing difficulties.
