Deborah Green

Tenant Services Officer

Babergh DC

One of several tenant services officers at Babergh, at 27 she's involved in estate management and tenant liaison services and has produced some well- regarded ideas in the process.

Also on the Anglia House Improvement Programme working group, and responsible for all tenant liaison on a 1960s Greater London Council overspill estate undergoing a£5m refurbishment. It can entail soothing tenants living in the midst of building work and coping with disgruntled estate owner-occupiers not eligible for the improvements.

A legal executive, with a law degree from Teesside University, she discovered she didn't want to be a solicitor, though she has worked for the Crown Prosecution Service.

Involvement with housing issues in the voluntary sector convinced her to pursue it

with Waveney DC in 1997.

'It's a challenging, very busy job. I use my legal knowledge every day, but I prefer working with people. I'd like to move into project-based managerial roles without losing the customer focus.

'I'm currently studying for a Chartered Institute of Housing post-graduate diploma.

I see myself as a career person and I aim to progress in housing with a local authority or housing association.'
