Housing Officer

New Opportunities, New Approach, New Challenge

Housing Officer
Full-time (part-time negotiable) position available in Oxford

37 hours per week – £26,000 + Benefits

Mayday Trust recently published Wisdom from Behind Closed Doors, an enquiry capturing the voices of people living in supported accommodation. The results highlighted the urgent need for a more person-led, human and positive approach to housing that allows people to take control and sustainably move on into a stable and connected community environment.

In response, Mayday is radically shaking up the norm and embarking upon an exciting new challenge; testing and informing a new way of working with people living in Mayday accommodation.

Mayday is now looking for a Housing Officer to join its Oxford team who is passionate about tackling social injustice, is tenacious and energetic in their approach and willing to challenge and be challenged to make housing work for people.

If you’re not afraid to leave your ego at the door and genuinely put the people you’re working alongside first, then read on! 

This is a fantastic opportunity for a like-minded person to join the Mayday Housing Team, operating within Oxford.

Bringing this fresh mind-set and approach alongside an ability to report confidently and accurately, the Housing Officer will manage Mayday’s Housing to ensure people live in safe, good quality homes and are able to live comfortably without the burden of disputes, debt and arears.

Despite the traditional label, this role has never been done in this way before. Mayday welcomes applicants with experience in working within a housing environment, but we are also looking for those who resonate with the Mayday ethos and believe that the system needs to change.

So if you’re ready to disrupt the system then please get in touch!
