You will assist the caseworkers in a wide variety of casework-related tasks, such as applying for grants and other destitution support and researching education opportunities. In this role, you may be asked to  advocate on behalf of members or support them to communicate with support services e.g. Universal Credit, colleges, medical professionals etc. You will receive training and materials from our caseworkers, and will be working closely with them.  

We have a mixture of remote and office-based working styles and (preferences can be discussed at the interview stage). You will be provided with a laptop and phone for this role.
