About you

You will be qualified to A-level standard in at least two subjects with excellent oral and written communication skills in order to produce high quality accurate work including taking minutes and writing reports. Good listening skills are also essential, in order to follow and record complex debates.

Most importantly, with strong interpersonal skills you will interact in a professional manner at all times and have a good understanding of the necessity of adopting a neutral political stance. 

About the role

We have established a Council Housing and Development Advisory Board to enable people with relevant sector expertise to contribute to the success of Housing Services and drive forward our ambitious development programme.

To ensure that meetings of the Board are successful, we are looking for an enthusiastic and highly organised individual to service the Board. The main duties of this role include organising meetings, preparing agendas, checking reports, taking and circulating minutes, advising Board members about constitutional procedures and publicising the work of the Board.

This role would suit someone who has meticulous organisation skills and we are looking for a motivated ‘can-do’, self-starter.

About the team

Housing Services manages and maintains around 5,000 tenancies and almost 1,000 leasehold properties in Exeter. As such, we provide a range of services to around one tenth of the population of the city. We also have an ambitious development programme to be delivered over the next five years.

The Performance, Strategy and Resident Involvement team work on a variety of projects across Housing Services in order to provide support. Some of our key achievements over the last 24 months have included setting up the Board, two customer involvement groups and ensuring lines of communication with our customers were maintained during the pandemic.

Current members of the team have had the opportunity to undertake accredited qualifications in order to support their personal and professional development.
