Job description

The University of Sussex would like to recruit a Housing Officer (Postgraduate Applications and Allocations). We are looking for a friendly, pro-active and organised person to be our Housing Officer, with responsibility for processing, via a database system, housing applications and allocations for postgraduate students to Sussex and to support the wider allocations team with the processing of application and allocations from other groups. The post holder will work closely with both the Housing Officer (Undergraduate and Specialist Groups) and the Housing Officer (Applications and Allocations).

 Housing Services is an accredited Investor In People department at the University of Sussex and the four teams that make up the service care very much about the student housing experience in the same way that each team member cares about each other.

 The successful post holder will join the service at an exciting time for student accommodation at Sussex, as we continue to expand our housing portfolio on our campus.

 The Housing Services Department is busy, so the post holder will need to handle a variety of tasks simultaneously, remain calm, be reliable and demonstrate excellent time management skills. You will be supported by a dedicated and friendly team.

 Please contact Jason Lucy, Housing Services Manager (Applications and Allocations) – J.J.Lucy@sussex.ac.uk for informal enquiries.
