We aim to build a sustainable business that provides great homes and supports customers to improve their lives.

To complement this service we are looking to strengthen our team further with an additional experienced welfare rights worker to provide direct benefits advice and casework to our tenants in their homes. This role will work closely with other staff within the team to help inform service delivery and to provide technical knowledge to support their work. The roll out of full service Universal Credit across Livin's area of operation is well underway; the post-holder will ensure that processes and services evolve as necessary to continue to meet the needs of people moving onto Universal Credit, and that staff are responding effectively to other benefit changes.

The successful candidate will possess excellent communication and organisational skills and a proven track record of delivering high quality welfare rights services.
