WELFARE BENEFIT CASEWORK ASSISTANTS

We are currently looking for volunteers to work on a new, exiting project starting in the middle of September 2017.
The ideal candidate should have some knowledge of the Welfare Benefit system and the challenges which applicants may face. However experience is not necessary as full training will be given.

 

The Welfare Benefit Casework Assistant will liaise with clients referred by SWLLC and support them with general benefit advice, assist in the completion of all appropriate benefit claims and follow up claims with external departments, in order to maximise their income.
