We are looking for someone with significant experience of supporting clients who are in financial difficulty in order to help maximise their income and apply for appropriate benefits and grants to reduce debts and excellent knowledge of welfare benefits including Universal Credit.
You will work as part of the Housing Solutions Team, preventing homelessness through financial inclusion and support.
You will be expected to manage a busy and demanding caseload and many of your clients will be in crisis and require urgent intervention.
You will be expected to travel across the two districts, including visiting clients in their own home therefore access to personal transport and a valid driving licence will be necessary.
Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils are committed to agile and flexible working practices (subject to business need). We believe that work is something we do and not somewhere we go; we want our staff to feel enabled and empowered to fully embrace these opportunities.
