Context of role
After nearly 6 months of advice being delivered by phone and email by our paid staff during lockdown we see this as an exciting time to develop our volunteer contribution to our local telephone and digital client solutions.
We are looking for someone with at least 12 months recent experience of supporting staff in a local Citizens Advice office or similar social welfare advice environment. We will also consider candidates with at least 2 years of delivering generalist advice who can demonstrate the skills and enthusiasm to support the development of volunteer advisers. Reporting to the Operational Senior Manager you will provide regular support face to face, via phone, zoom or hangouts to our team of paid staff and volunteers across all areas of advice. You will work with the Training Manager to ensure that we develop the skill sets of volunteers by direct supervision of advice, feedback and mentoring and by being observed by trainee advisers, ensuring they observe and develop good practice in their advice giving and case write-ups.

Annual Leave: 28 days
