Information & Advice Officer (part-time)
Do you have a background in customer care, excellent communication skills and a desire to help people?
Age UK Somerset is an independent local charity leading teams of staff and volunteers to provide information and other services that create opportunities for people in later life.
Our Information & Advice team is at the heart of our organisation, providing a service directly to older people and others who need advice on issues affecting older people.
We are pleased to invite applications for the following part-time role, based in our Taunton office.
Information and Advice Volunteers
Our Information and Advice (I&A) Volunteers help improve older people’s lives by assisting them in claiming the benefits that they were entitled to. This can make a huge difference in reducing financial anxiety. Volunteers help clients over the phone or by visiting them at home to help fill out forms. Our I&A volunteers tell us that contributing to a successful claim can be very satisfying and they also report how much they enjoy meeting new people and how they like the feeling of being useful and keeping their brains active!
Full training is given. This opportunity is very flexible and suits someone who is good with paperwork and well organised.
This ‘free-to-client’ service covers the whole of Somerset and North Somerset. Understandably demand is high so we are always looking for volunteers to help!
