Housing Services Administration Assistant (Summer Placement)
About the summer placement scheme:
A summer placement at Chelmsford City Council is a great way to see how local government works. It will give you an opportunity to work on live projects with experienced colleagues, gain insight into local government and enhance skills you will need for a successful career.
The insights and experience you will gain on a summer placement will give you hands-on experience which may be helpful to you if you decide to apply for our 1-year Graduate Programme in the future.
We are seeking an enthusiastic and motivated individual with excellent attention to detail and accuracy skills. This is extremely important, as this role will involve project and review work for Housing Services which is part of Financial & Housing Services. You will setup forums for Private Landlords, Registered Providers and Private Tenants and carry out stakeholder surveys. The summer placement student will also be providing general administrative support to the service.
You will be a graduate or in your penultimate/final year of an undergraduate degree in any discipline. You will have an interest in a career in local government and be keen to make the most of your time with us. You will have customer services skills and you will also be able to work on your own initiative and within a team.
Chelmsford City Council is committed to safeguarding vulnerable groups and expects all employees to share this commitment. This includes obtaining references and ensuring compliance with the Disclosure and Barring Service process.
