Job Description


An exciting opportunity has arisen for 2 x Safer Communities Officer (Anti-Social Behaviour). These are full time fixed term post until March 2022.

Come and join our new team

At Karbon we build, manage and look after homes for people across the North.  And then we go further, we give them the strong foundations they need to crack on with life. We want to build better lives for our customers, not just better homes. Everything we do is for their security, health and happiness under their own roofs, in their communities and out there in the wider world.

Since our formation in 2017, we’ve been focused on delivering on our three strategic aims - to provide as many good quality homes as we can; to deliver excellent service to our customers; and to shape strong, sustainable places for our communities.

Our footprint covers the North East of England and Yorkshire, south from the Scottish border to almost as far as the Humber, where diverse communities face differing opportunities and challenges.

Some customers just need an affordable home, or a way onto the property ladder.  Others might need a bit more – financial advice, community services, sheltered accommodation or even training that can lead to a new job.  Whatever people need to feel more secure, confident, and happy with where they are at, we work our heart out to provide it.

During this unprecedented time, the safety of our colleagues, customers, and communities is paramount. We continue to interview and hire, but for everyone’s safety, we are shifting our interview process to either phone or video interviews via Microsoft Teams and adjusting the way we onboard new starters.

We are looking for 2 x Safer Communities Officer (Anti-Social Behaviour) – Fixed Term until March 2022

We are looking to appoint a suitably qualified and experienced individual to undertake the post of Safer Communities Officer to work with victims and perpetrators and tackle Anti-Social Behaviour.

  • Generous benefits package including 26 days annual leave on commencement rising to 31 days after 3 years’ service, occupational pension, flexi-time scheme, health cash plan, and birthday leave, with the option of a flexible pot towards enhanced benefits.

The role specialises in providing a high quality, customer focused service to victims and perpetrators of anti-social behaviour across the Karbon Homes stock.

You will be working with Safer Communities colleagues where the provision involves a pro-active approach to prevent and tackle anti-social behaviour.

You will manage a caseload of anti-social behaviour cases and carrying out associated administrative tasks, keeping detailed case note and ensure investigations are carried in line with all legal and non-legal remedies.

Working in collaboration with team members and legal advisors, you will prepare and support Officers with producing documentation, reports, issue and serve notices of intention to seek possession, injunctions, or other legal notices for anti-social behaviour within tight deadlines. You will be expected to attend court on behalf of the organisation as required.

You will have an excellent understanding of the various support agencies available and will make support referrals where necessary for both victims and perpetrators. The role will need someone who can develop strong working relationships with key external partners in a multi-agency forum.
