The Council will require between two and four Housing and Council Tax Benefit officers to provide remote processing of the Council’s Housing and Council Tax Benefit claims. The Assessment Officers will carry out all types of assessments including council and private claims, working age and pension age claims and Passport and non-passport claims. They will also be required to process overpayments using the Council’s Sundry Debtors system and reply to customer’s queries in writing and on the telephone.
The exact number of workers required on any given month will be determined by the Council and will depend upon the volume of work. The Council will issue instructions to the Contractor as and when required.
