We are seeking a Welfare Benefits Caseworker who is motivated and organised. The role will be 37.5 hours per week.
You will work as part of our dynamic and growing Macmillan Welfare Rights Team, providing welfare benefits advice to maximise the income of clients and their families.
The team was established 14 years ago and is recognised by Macmillan as being one of their highest-performing teams in the UK.
Clients are referred to us from the Royal United Hospital, Macmillan, Dorothy House, MS Society and now also from Bath Mind. Therefore, clients will be suffering from life-altering and life-shortening conditions like cancer, MND and MS and may also have mental health conditions.
Some home working is an option with this role along with working at the Citizens Advice (CA) Bath&NES head office and multiple outreach sites in Bath, Midsomer Norton and Keynsham. A full driving licence and access to a car will be necessary as it will also involve travel to support clients in their homes.

Please send your completed application to firstname.lastname@example.org Your employment history will be reviewed, but your application will be marked against the person specification so please ensure you provide examples of how you meet each point.
