Kirklees Citizens Advice and Law Centre has a vacancy for a part-time Debt Caseworker. The aim of the post is to deliver debt advice across Kirklees, working in liaison with the Money and Pension Wise Manager to ensure the effective running of the team.  The Debt Caseworker will be responsible for ensuring that advice is delivered to consistently high standards and meets the technical requirements of the Money and Pensions Service.

The ability to work flexibly and efficiently in a demanding environment is essential. Excellent communication skills and the ability to think on your feet are also important aspects of the post.

Suitable candidates for the post will have recent experience of delivering debt advice to a wide range of clients (face to face and on the telephone). Priority will be given to applicants who are an approved Debt Relief Order Intermediary. We will not consider applicants who do not have the experience we require.

The job will require some working from the first floor of our Huddersfield offices and we regret that there is no lift which means that it may be unsuitable for some people with a mobility impairment.

 Closing date: Monday 22 February at 12 NOON
