Salary:                £25,000 pa

Annual Leave:   5 weeks plus bank holidays

Term:                  Initially funded for 3 years but may be extended

 

As welfare reforms continue to bite, our advisers are seeing increasing numbers of clients wanting to challenge benefits decisions.  Accessing free specialist help has been problematic since the withdrawal of legal aid for social welfare law.  To help address this problem in Portsmouth we have secured a grant from a charitable trust, to employ a full time paid specialist adviser/caseworker for three years.

Based at our city centre headquarters at Ark Royal House, Winston Churchill Avenue, you will also deliver outreach work, including home visits to vulnerable clients and therefore a DBS check will be required.  

You will also help to support volunteers in advice delivery, including acting as technical consultant and monitoring quality of advice.

You will have a strong background in social welfare law; excellent written and verbal communication skills and the confidence to represent clients at Tribunal.
