Expanding our Neighbourhood Teams to improve local services

Worthing Homes is happy to announce extra investment in our Neighbourhood Teams which will increase our capacity for responding to resident enquiries and enable us to more effectively work through all tenancy enquiries as well as deal with issues of anti-social behaviour.

We have recently appointed an additional Housing Officer which means there will now be 6 Housing Officers managing 5 (previously 4) geographical areas. Alongside the recent appointment of a second tenancy Sustainment Officer, these recruitments will enable us to better meet our corporate objectives of being a well-run business with a customer-focused culture.

Our Head of Customer Service, Sarah Murphy says “The cost of living crisis as well as cuts to vital services such as mental health support can mean that the Housing Officer’s are often dealing with some really tough situations. Our team want to do all that they can to support residents and having these additional resources in the team will help us give a better service to residents and also ensure we remain a great place to work.”

The Neighbourhood Housing Officers will continue to work alongside the Income Recovery Officers and their colleagues in the repairs team and across the business to deliver excellent tenancy management to our customers.

As a result of this recruitment, you may have a new Neighbourhood Housing Officer managing your tenancy. If you have an ongoing matter being dealt with by a Neighbourhood Housing Officer, such as a mutual exchange application or antisocial behaviour case, this will be assigned to the appropriate Housing Officer for your area.
