I have been with Staffs Housing for 20 years and have worked in Housing since 1994 in a variety of areas including supported housing, housing benefit, council tax, rent arrears and also as a homelessness officer for Newcastle Borough Council.
I have seen a lot of changes over the years but the general aim of the job has been the same - to give people a home they are proud of and love to live in.
I have always enjoyed working with people, helping them to resolve issues and support them when things aren't going well. I enjoy working in a close knit and supportive team and have always felt I have had the benefit of this with Staffs Housing and Honeycomb Group.
I have two young children and a dog, so little time for hobbies and interests that don't involve them: although I am probably the only person in Stoke to still play Pokemon Go!
I started my career with Staffs Housing just over 22 years ago and have not looked back.
For my first ten years, I worked in several roles, including helping to manage our accommodation for the Royal stoke Hospital and projecting managing our schemes to make sure they are fully furnished.
I have now been in the Housing team for 10 years and help the team to manage a variety of properties as well as supporting our customers.
I moved to part time work from mid-2014 after having my two boys where I work Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Fridays if you ever need to get in touch.
I've worked for Staffs Housing for two and a half years. I recently moved from the Customer Service Team so we may have spoken before!
I wanted to learn more about the housing sector and develop my skills further and the Housing Team is the best place for me to develop those skills.
Staffs Housing is a great company to work for it allows you flexibility. Customer experience is very important to me, and I enjoy providing a good service. Outside of work I am a bit of an aviation and space geek (yes - a plane spotter). You may see me out and about with your Housing Officer so please pop over and say "Hello"!
I have worked for Staffs Housing for nearly 10 years, initially working across our 3 older people villages as a Community Development Officer and then as an income officer for Staffs Housing, Concrete and Glow.
Before I worked for Staffs Housing I was a resident’s friend at the Citizens Advice where I supported residents who were affected by regeneration.
I have worked in housing in my various roles for 15 years. I now manage some of shared ownership homes as well as properties for leaseholders and general needs. I love getting out and meeting residents, and working with communities. I also love to bake, cook and make crafty things
I have worked in housing for 8 years.
I work with a great team, and I really enjoy the variety of my role, and meeting and talking to new people.
When I’m at the office, I try to keep tidy and organised and I’m usually busy answering calls and emails. When I’m not at work, I love cooking, gardening and spending time with my family.
I’ve worked at Staffs Housing for over 3 years and have loved every minute. A far cry from my past job in travel.
Whether it’s the customer or my colleagues - it’s all about the people for me. I enjoy helping customers in achieving a happy home and building communities. It gets challenging sometimes but I that’s how I learn.
I have been working in the housing sector since 1995 and joined Staffs Housing in 2002 as a Tenancy Support Officer. I've been a Housing Officer since 2005.
Since joining I’ve completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Housing Practice & I'm a member of the Charted Institute of Housing. This is just one of the reasons why Staffs Housing is a good organisation to work for as they invest in professional training to help us fulfil our role to the best of our ability.
The role of a Housing Officer is a challenging one & every day is different. Not only do we work to provide someone with a home, we work in the community and are often the first to identify if a customer needs further support. I find this very rewarding as it can literally change someone’s life.
Outside of work, you’ll usually find me running somewhere and I have ventured into the world of ultra-marathons-my longest event so far is 50 miles which I completed in February.
I have worked at Staffs Housing for 17 years. I started as a Corporate Service Assistant and have also worked as a Housing Assistant, Customer Service Coordinator and now a Housing Officer.
I really enjoy working for the Honeycomb Group and having the opportunity to help people and build up our communities.
I like that everyday at work is different and although it can be challenging it is a very rewarding career. I studied at Staffordshire University and have a BA Hons Degree in Business and Tourism, I also have housing qualifications.
I love to travel and I try to exercise as much as I can by attending fitness classes, walking and more.
