Revenues Officer (2 positions)

Erewash Borough Council

The Revenues & Benefits service is looking for experienced, customer focussed individuals to join their small team responsible for the billing, collection and enforcement of Council Tax, and Business Rates.

 

The role requires the post holder to deal with day-to-day contact from customers with enquiries about council tax or business rates, accurately updating and maintaining records, along with taking action to recover amounts owed to the council.

You will need a good standard of education and must be able to work on your own initiative. Knowledge and experience of administrative procedures and computerised systems are essential.

 

The successful candidate will need to undertake Basic Disclosure and Baseline Personnel Security Standard checks.
