Citizens Advice offers confidential advice online, over the phone and in person, for free. We give people the knowledge and the confidence they need to find their way forward – whoever they are, and whatever their problem.  We help with everything from money issues to problems at work, housing to consumer rights.

We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic and motivated individual who is passionate about helping others.  This role is based within the Advicelink team, giving holistic, rights-based advice by telephone to help people who are unaware of the benefits to which they may be entitled which could offer them the support they need. 

The successful candidate will ideally have recent experience in all categories of social welfare law advice and in particular, in advising on welfare benefits, including calculations.  However, training in all aspects will be given to the right candidate.  He/she must have a confident and sensitive telephone manner, effective communication skills, be a team player and be computer literate.

Applications from outside of Ceredigion will be considered.

To join us in making advice accessible to everyone, please request an application pack by email to:  recruitment@cabceredigion.org or download from our website at www.cabceredigion.org

CVs will not be read, please use the application pack and please contact us if you need the information in a different format than the one supplied by email.
