We require an enthusiastic Money Adviser to work as part of a team of Money Advisers and provide effective, efficient debt advice within the aims, policies and principles of our Citizens Advice service.

Acting as a resource for our bureau’s generalist advisers, your remit will include the provision of casework covering the full range of money advice, and you will act for the client where necessary by calculating, negotiating, drafting or writing letters and telephoning third parties as appropriate.

You will be a meticulous individual, especially when maintaining case records for continuity of casework, and you’ll assist with research and campaigns work by providing information about clients’ circumstances. You will also be very well informed with regards to legislative, case law and policy changes relating to debt and benefits, and you’ll be expected to use your knowledge and influence internally by mentor trainee money advisers.

To be considered for the post, you will be self-driven with the ability to prioritise your own work, meet deadlines and manage your own caseload autonomously. A strong communicator across all media, you will boast effective writing skills, and be adept in the areas of negotiation, representing and preparing reviews, reports and correspondence.

Please email admin.office@bhwcab.org.uk for an application pack.
