Senior Enforcement Officer (Housing)

Coventry, the UK City of Culture for 2021 is a rapidly expanding place with a buoyant and growing private rented sector. Keeping residents safe and tackling poor housing conditions is a key strategic priority for the Council. The Government has recently extended licensing of Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) and the Council has big plans for introducing discretionary licensing in the city. We are therefore adapting in order to respond to the need to licence more properties, and in targeting and tackling the poorest housing conditions operated by criminal landlords. As a result, we are expanding our Housing Enforcement and Property Licensing Team.
