Welfare Benefits Advisor (21 hours per week)

Every four hours in the UK, someone is paralysed by a spinal cord injury. Aspire provides practical help to all who are affected and our Welfare Benefits team are at the heart of the support we provide. This last year has seen demand for our service increase and we are expanding the team to meet this need.
 
We are looking for an experienced Welfare Benefits professional to join our team. You will use your skills and knowledge to support clients through welfare benefit checks, helping them complete forms and, where required, challenging decisions through the appeals process. You will be comfortable working to tight deadlines and with high-volume caseload and have experience of working with vulnerable clients. Excellent communication skills, both with the team and your clients, are essential. 
 
In line with current guidelines, this role is currently home-based but will, ideally, be based back at the Aspire offices as circumstances allow. Flexible working will be considered and, for the right candidate, permanent home working may be an option.
