Role summary: The Agnes Smith Advice Centre is looking for a new adviser to join a small, highly motivated, and friendly team, initially for a one-year fixed term, with the possibility of extension. The role will involve both advice and casework. You will have substantial and recent knowledge and experience of money advice and/or welfare benefits advice.
At the heart of the local community in Blackbird Leys, the Agnes Smith Advice Centre provides a wide range of advice, with a particular focus on welfare benefits and money advice. You will be committed to the provision of excellent quality advice.
Normally, you will work from the centre most of the time, but you may also be asked to do some advice sessions at our outreach venues. During the Covid-19 crisis, advisers are working mainly from home. You may be expected to work from the office on one or two days per week on a rota basis, subject to an individual Covid risk assessment. We are following government guidance to ensure all work at the centre is Covid-secure.
As an equal opportunities employer we value diversity, and encourage and welcome applications from people of all backgrounds.
