 Lightbulb is a partnership Programme supported by the seven District Councils in Leicestershire and Leicestershire County Council. It brings together a range of practical housing support into a single point of access or referral.  The overall ambition is to maximise the contribution that housing support can play in keeping vulnerable people independent in their homes.

You must be able to work within a changing environment, with the motivation to drive forward improvement in a developing team and service area.

The role will be based at Blaby District Council Offices in Narborough but you will be required to work across the whole of Leicestershire visiting staff at different sites.
