TRAINEE DEBT ADVICE CASEWORKER/
DEBT ADVICE CASEWORKER
Part-time (22.2 hours per week) days of work to be agreed.
We are looking to recruit an experienced Debt Advice Caseworker, or someone who has transferable skills and wants to train to become an accredited Debt Advice Caseworker, to work as part of a small team, covering the full range of debt work throughout South Devon.
The successful candidate may not have the necessary advice experience but will be positive, professional, flexible and adaptable. Strong people skills, the ability to work in an empowering way and a positive attitude are important; as are good numeracy skills for calculating and helping clients prepare budgets, along with literacy skills for drafting correspondence and reports.
If applying as a trainee, you will be expected to undertake training to reach caseworker level within an agreed period; and subsequently, you would be expected to work towards gaining the Certificate in Money Advice Practice and DRO intermediary status. Therefore, the successful candidate will need to demonstrate evidence of recent learning.
You will need to be able to prioritise your own work, meet deadlines and manage your caseload successfully.
The post will involve visiting people in their own homes, so there will be a need for travel throughout Devon, to fulfil this role: and the use of your own car is an essential requirement.
You will be based in our Exeter office
Salary - £18,000 - £22,000 pro rata (depending on experience) +3% pension
(Rising to £22,837.50 on satisfactory completion of training)
