I work for the Glasgow Housing Association - basically the evolution of Glasgow City Council's Department of Housing. I assist tenants and the general public in Housing matters, rent, tenancy issues, legal issues etc. When I'm not doing that I spend a lot of time chasing rent arrears - that's one of the big parts of the job.

Thank you for the explanation! One of the larger sections of the realty course involved property management, tenants, leases and our housing authorities. Your title made me curious about your area of expertise. (And it lets you use words like arrears - hehehe...)

I am also curious - does it require you to actually go out physically to collect or just track down the defaulters through a paper trail?

I do go out to debtors, but not to collect. I can't physically take cash off of them. I would ask people to come to the office for a meeting, but a lot of times they won't show up. It seems to be human nature to think that avoiding problems makes them go away (I'm guilty of it too) So, I'll go to people's houses and knock on the door.

I am a callcenter worker. Handy enough because
a) I speak 4 languages, so easy to find work in multilingual callcenters
b) it is a job somewhat hidden from the public, which is handy for someone with Asperger Syndrome (like me)
c) Callcenters exist in many countries, so it's a good industry for the traveller. Unfortunately, of all the places on earth not to have many multilingual callcenters, my dreamt-off Norway is one of them
