About the role and team

We are seeking a Caseworker to join our busy team to work predominantly on Court of Protection matters.  You will be assisting the Deputies in making and implementing financial decisions on behalf of our clients.  This can be anything from making regular bill payments, arranging for a boiler to be fixed, to investigating the most appropriate car choice (to name but a few), no two days are the same.

About the candidate

The successful candidate will be a great team player, have a good head for figures and enjoy working under pressure. You will need to be able to understand the bigger picture of individual clients’ financial affairs and future needs whilst completing the day to day tasks. You will be expected to multi-task and deal with anyone from a distressed mentally ill person, an angry carer to an unhelpful official and be able to charm the birds from the trees in securing positive outcomes for our clients.

The role requires the ability to work under pressure with ever changing priorities, a flexible and adaptable approach, an excellent level of common sense and life skills, together with excellent client care and IT skills. The role will require a level of travelling to meet with clients to assess their needs and properties.

This is a great opportunity to join a supportive firm which values its staff and the contribution that you make
