More about the job

About the job

Citizens Advice and Rights Fife (CARF) is an independent and innovative advice organisation providing holistic advice and support to local people.  Our service continues to grow and expand, and we are now excited to be able to announce a new income maximisation vacancy working between CARF’s Carers Income Maximisation Project and CARF’s Food Insecurity team.

The successful applicant will work across these two projects delivering person centred income maximisation advice and support including assessing welfare benefit entitlement, budgeting assistance, and information on banking services and affordable credit.  The service will also actively refer both internally and externally where further issues are identified e.g. debt issues.

As this role is split across two projects the successful candidate will need to be well organised with good planning skills and a well-disciplined approach to work.

In addition, you will have a good standard of education, high quality personal skills and a desire to improve lives.  Experience of working in an advice giving capacity and/or a knowledge or interest in the social security system would be advantageous but not essential.

Applications must be received by 12 noon on Wednesday 1 June 2022.

We are committed to Equal Opportunities and applications are welcome from all communities.
