The Guernsey Housing Association (GHA) has appointed three assistant housing officers to strengthen its day-to-day management of affordable housing across the island.
Danni King, Stephanie Mockett and Tom Bonsall joined the GHA to oversee a number of developments and be the main point of contact for tenants and working closely with their allocated housing officer.
Danni joined the GHA with previous experience as a dispatcher at Guernsey Airport and Tom applied for the role after speaking to the GHA team at the Guernsey College of Further Education’s Careers Fair for school leavers in June. Stephanie returned to the island earlier this year after living and working in the UK gaining experience in a customer-facing role.
Their responsibilities include assisting the GHA’s four housing officers, deputy housing officer and housing manager with tenant queries, property viewings, rent payments, problem-solving, ensuring tenancies are well managed and managing lettings and partial ownership sales.
“The needs of our residents are our top priority and these three new hires will strengthen the relationships between our team and our tenants and partial owners,” said chief executive officer Steve Williams.
“We have appointed three exceptional young people who are keen to develop careers that can be extremely rewarding as they help islanders to find suitable housing opportunities. The GHA is investing in training them to progress into our housing management team to further strengthen our customer service offering.
“Danni, Steph and Tom have transitioned into their roles seamlessly and all bring with them a wealth of skills which we aim to nurture and develop as they progress.”
