Do you have a good knowledge base in income and/or debt recovery and are looking to place your skills in a company that values “making a difference” within the communities we operate in?

We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated team player with strong communication skills to join our busy income recovery team based in our central Birmingham Office, as an Income Recovery Advisor.

 

The Role & About You

As an Income Recovery Advisor, you will be highly focussed on reducing arrears and ensuring our customers put their rent first, whilst balancing our responsibilities as a social landlord. You will embrace our firm but fair approach; recognising the commercial requirement to minimise arrears alongside the need to support the more vulnerable in our communities.

Supported by our Income Recovery Officers, you will have the drive and organisational skills to manage your own caseload. You should have the ability to communicate with our tenants via a range of media, both written and verbal, with a strong bias on quality telephone contact. An excellent negotiator, you will have the ability to stay cool in challenging situations, the confidence to ask difficult questions and the empathy to deal sympathetically with customers who may be in genuine difficulty.

Experience within Income Recovery, or Housing or a customer contact environment would be highly advantageous but not essential for the right candidate.

An understanding of debt recovery is essential and a good knowledge of welfare benefits is needed to help best advise our customers.
