Unipol is a housing Charity established in 1973 by the University and the then Polytechnic in Leeds in co-operation with their students’ unions. In 1997, Unipol became an incorporated Charitable Company with a Board structure.

The Housing Management Officer is an important member of one of Unipol’s housing management teams and will manage a mixed portfolio of student occupied properties ranging from a small complex to some off-street shared student housing.  

This is an excellent post for gaining or extending management experience of a high quality portfolio. All aspects of student housing management can be found within this portfolio: first year undergraduates, undergraduate returners, postgraduates and research students.   

The post holder reports to the Assistant Chief Executive – Housing and on a day to day basis to the relevant Housing Team Leader.   The Housing Manager is part of a team and will play a full role in interacting with other housing staff.

The post will involve some limited late night working (up to 7.00pm) and weekend work at specific times of the year, together with the need to undertake cover and call-out arrangements over some public holidays when arrangements for dealing with emergencies have to be made by the Assistant Chief Executive – Housing. The post holder is also required to work some early mornings on a rota to answer telephone enquiries about repairs.  

In the event of a major incident or emergency taking place at the developments or other houses the Housing Management Officer will attend and operate as Unipol’s representative on site and direct incidents as necessary, additional payment will be made in respect of any time taken on fulfilling these duties. The post holder is also required to work some early mornings on a rota to answer telephone enquiries about repairs.
