The Housing Management Section is headed up by Sandy Young, and is split into a Housing Support Team and a Housing Officer Team.
Supporting our tenants
The Housing Management Team handles the core part of our business. They are typically the first point of contact for our customers and deal with the day to day front line operations at Almond. Getting applicants matched with a home and then supporting them to retain their home is the most important role in housing management.
The Housing Support team, led by Housing Support Manager Tracey Longworth, is the first point of contact for applicants and tenants. Any member of the team can help you with application enquiries, repairs, taking rent payments and making referrals to our Money Advisor or Energy Advisor.
We can also refer to other agencies such as The Schoolbank, HomeAid and Women's Aid. If we can’t help you we will do all that we can to find an organisation that can.
Our Housing Assistants will deal with any repairs enquiries or problems you are having within your property. If this cannot be resolved at the first point of contact our Housing Officers are happy to help.
We want our tenants to be proud of where they live and our Housing Officers play a vital part in creating great homes and neighbourhoods within our stock.
The Housing Officer Team is led by Housing Manager Jonathan Bertram, and count six Housing Officers. The team is responsible for the management of our tenants' homes and neighbourhoods, including collecting rent, dealing with problems of antisocial behaviour, managing our local estates and communal areas, and supporting tenants from the moment they move into their new home and throughout their time as a tenant with us.
