Do you enjoy making a difference in an organisation that delivers services to the community?

Do you want to work for a Company that understands the importance of its staff?

 

We are looking for a Training Officer to join our Revenues and Benefits service.  

Since 2010, Public Sector Partnership Services has been delivering services for East Lindsey and South Holland District Councils, and, having just secured another 10 year contract, we are looking to recruit into this busy service as we move into a period of transformation.

The Position

As our Training Officer, you will be responsible for developing and delivering Housing Benefit and Council Tax Support training, to help us maintain a highly knowledgeable and skilled service.  This is a key role, and the successful candidate will be required to have significant experience and knowledge in a Housing Benefit / Council Tax Support environment.   

Whilst the role is primarily focused on Benefits training, knowledge in Council Tax service delivery would also be a distinct advantage as our service begins a journey of transformation towards a multi-functional way of working.

Candidates should note that whilst there is a choice of Manby or Spalding as a work base location, there will be a requirement for frequent travel between sites.  You must therefore hold a full driving license and have access to a suitably insured vehicle.

About You

If you have the experience and knowledge we are looking for, and you are passionate about contributing to continuous improvement and ongoing learning and development in a Revenues and Benefits environment, then this might be the role for you.  You must be organised and able to manage your work to meet deadlines and priorities, and be able to confidently and accurately interpret and articulate complex information.  Attention to detail is essential.  Above all, you must be enthusiastic, with a keen desire to contribute to a culture of continuous service improvement, and be flexible to meet the needs of the service.

Employee benefits:

  • annual leave purchase scheme;
  • flexible working opportunities;
  • funded training & development;
  • payment of professional subscriptions;
  • CSSC discount scheme;
  • Employee Assistance Program; and
  • Local Government Pension Scheme with annual employer contribution of 21.8%.
