We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic person to join the Client Finance Team within the Adult Care Financial Services Team. You will be responsible for managing the property and financial affairs of a portfolio of service users who lack the capacity to manage their finances themselves.

As you will be responsible for all aspects of a service user’s property and financial affairs, you will be able to work on your own initiative, have a high attention to detail, be able to prioritise competing tasks and effectively manage your workload.

You will be a confident communicator, with the ability to communicate professionally, effectively and empathetically with service users and their families, providing accurate advice and resolutions to queries and problems relating to their finances. You will also be able to form good relationships with a range of people including, social workers, support providers and government agencies.

Training will be provided on all aspects of the role, but you will have some knowledge of Adult Social Care and Health and some knowledge of the state benefit system would be useful, although not essential.

Appointment to this post is subject to an enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service check.

Disabled applicants who meet the essential shortlisting requirements will be guaranteed an interview. A job share scheme is available for all full time posts: both permanent and temporary, unless otherwise stated. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and we expect all staff to share this commitment and undergo appropriate checks.

The County Council welcomes applications from all, irrespective of gender, marital status, disability, race, age or sexual orientation.
