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 new positions attached to the food insecurity agenda to help us achieve our vision of “A better life for the people of Fife”.

Food insecurity occurs where people no longer have reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable nutritious food.  These posts will be attached to various providers of food across Fife, helping improve the financial circumstances of those using the emergency food services and providing a sustainable path out of food insecurity.

The successful applicant will deliver a financial inclusion service to clients accessing a variety of emergency food providers across Fife, providing personalised income maximisation advice and support.  This service will include 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.

The successful candidate will also be required to demonstrate a commitment to CARF’s vision and values.
