Citizens Advice South Warwickshire has recently formed through the merger of the Citizens Advice offices in Warwick and Stratford on Avon Districts. Together we have a significant track record of developing services that support those with complex advice needs and that ‘reach out’ to the most vulnerable and excluded in our community. Last year, we helped nearly 9,000 people with around 35,000 problems.

Fixed Term to March 2020

An exciting opportunity has now arisen for someone to lead our help to claim service. The role includes:

  • Coordinating appointment and service cover for the Help to Claim service.
  • Work to the direction of the training supervisor in the development and training of help to claim volunteers.

You will report to the Advice Services Manager and must have:

  • Ability to manage a caseload, manage time, meet deadlines whilst maintaining progress to targets and meeting quality standards.
  • Ability to give and receive feedback objectively and sensitively and a willingness to challenge constructively, and support others with their development.
  • Ability to work effectively as part of a team in a busy environment and coordinate the day to day running of a service.
