Energy Advice Caseworker – closing date 25 March 2020

Citizens Advice Reading is looking for a suitable candidate who would be interested in developing their existing advice skills and gaining experience in project work. We will provide a full training and support package if necessary.

You will join a team of advisers within our hugely successful Energy Advice Team, the key provider of energy advice in the Thames Valley area. This team aims to tackle fuel poverty by providing a service specifically targeted at the most vulnerable and financially excluded individuals and families.

Following initial training, the adviser will provide a flexible menu of services including energy and energy efficiency advice, money advice, income maximisation, and welfare benefits via a range of outreach venues/telephone and face to face advice.
