About the job

The Citizens Advice network is set to deliver a comprehensive, enhanced support service called Help to Claim. From April 2019 Dundee Citizens Advice Bureau will provide the advice and support people need to submit their claim for Universal Credit and support them through to their first payment.

We are looking for a client-focused individual with experience of providing welfare benefits advice, to join us as a Help to Claim Adviser (Universal Credit). In this role you will help ensure our clients get the support they need face to face.

The successful candidate will demonstrate relevant experience and knowledge of the wider welfare benefit system including Universal Credit, demonstrating strong oral and written communication skills.  We are also looking for a proven ability to work effectively and well organised. Proficiency using a range of IT tools to carry out your work, including case management systems, online claims’ services and Microsoft Office applications is essential. Committed, results-driven and supportive to the needs of others, you work well within a team and are willing to follow and develop agreed procedures.

As Help to Claim Adviser (Universal Credit), you will deliver a holistic advice and support service aimed at clients on completing their initial Universal Credit claim, and to support them through to their first payment. This will involve helping with the online forms, the evidence required, and verifying their identity online using face-to-face.
