Is it time to further your career with a dynamic community-focused charity? Then we have the ideal opportunity for you!

Coventry Independent Advice Service aims to empower Coventry residents, and reduce inequality and poverty, through the provision of high-quality advice, information and support. Our advice is mainly delivered ‘where people are’, in their own communities, using a mix of outreach venues across the city.

We are looking to recruit a dynamic, inspirational and highly motivated Senior Debt Caseworker to work alongside our Director of Service and our Senior Benefits Caseworker to help achieve our objectives.

You will play an important role in delivering advice, providing leadership and support to a small team, contributing to service development and ensuring that effective quality systems are maintained.

You will have significant recent experience of working as a specialist debt adviser and be able to interpret legislation, policy and guidance. An understanding of wider issues in the advice sector, including welfare reform, would also be an advantage.

You will have a track record of leading, motivating and effectively managing others, ideally in an organisation where a commitment to quality standards is paramount.

Client focused, you will have a keen interest in developing and improving services for city residents. You will also have excellent communication, influencing and people skills along with a positive and flexible approach.

For an informal discussion, or to request further details and an application pack, please contact or telephone 024 76521100. You can also find more information about our service on our website at
