About Nacro

We believe that for people who end up in prison, it should be the start of somewhere better – not a road to nowhere. We don’t just talk about positive social change at Nacro. We do it every day: challenging unfairness, breaking down barriers, and giving some of the most vulnerable people the best chance at a second chance.

Do you want a career that makes a real difference to peoples’ lives? Do you want to work for an organisation that will invest in your personal development?

You’ve come to the right place! Join our growing team Finance, Benefit & Debt Advisors.

  

What do our Finance, Benefit & Debt Advisors do?

Our FBD Advisors provide tailored resettlement support to individuals under probation supervision in the community, with the aim of supporting them with Finance Benefit and Debt needs, delivered via group and individual interventions, according to need. They work collaboratively in a multi-agency setting as required, maintaining professional relationships and appropriate confidentiality of information.

Who are we looking for?

You will need to be a great communicator, enjoy working in a busy people focussed role, organised and solution focussed. The right candidate can engage with others and is non-judgmental. You will bring with you, integrity, a proactive attitude, and good ICT skills (MS Office including excel and custom databases).

Our ideal candidate will have experience of delivering interventions in a group setting with the ability to engage with and motivate challenging service users from a diverse range of backgrounds.

Knowledge of the criminal justice sector and finance, benefits and debt legislation are highly welcomed, however we will provide you with the relevant training and support required for the job.

If you want to work as part of a dynamic supportive team who delivers results for the people we support every day, Nacro could be the place for you.

At Nacro, we believe in the power of a diverse and inclusive team. We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds, including those with criminal records and those with first-hand experience of the criminal justice system. All applications are assessed on merit.

Vetting Requirements

If you would like advice about applying for work with a criminal record, please contact our confidential Criminal Record Support Service on 0300 123 1999 or by email at helpline@nacro.org.uk
