This Post is based within our Advice Team in Edinburgh and will operate as part of the wider benefits advice and income maximisation service funded by the Edinburgh Integration Joint Board.

The Advice Worker will provide income maximisation, advice on welfare benefits and debt as well as tribunal representation within our projects.

The model of provision will, typically, involve a half day of direct client contact, followed up with a further half-day casework. The direct client contact will usually take place in outreach locations in the community, with the casework undertaken at CHAI’s main office or appropriate venues. With social distancing measures in place, the Advisor will deliver advice on the phone until it is safe to resume face to face appointments. Casework will also be undertaken from home when possible.
