The service was established in 2011 and has played a lead role in the set-up and delivery of our Help2 Initiative (tenant support fund), and proudly led campaigns to raise awareness of the dangers associated with illegal money lending and loan sharks; with CBH winning two ‘National Champions’ awards as a result. The service has also been shortlisted on three occasions for prestigious housing industry awards.
The philosophy of our Benefit and Money Advice team is simple; the service must be accessible to all. Perseverance and varied methods of communication are used to encourage customer engagement and you will be key to supporting this approach.
Is this a challenging post? Yes, without question. However, the positive outcomes and appreciation shown by our customers makes being part of this successful team incredibly rewarding. The team are often confided in, and you truly have a part to play in identifying those most in need of help and making a real difference to people’s lives.
The role is advertised at 37 hours per week over five days (Monday to Friday). However, to secure the best person for the post we are happy to discuss should you require some flexibility to this working pattern.
Please do ensure that you answer the recruitment screening questions thoroughly and make certain that you take the opportunity to tell us about your knowledge, experience and transferable skills.
