Client Advisor

Term: Permanent subject to funding

Salary: £16,635 – £ 19,921 per annum

We are looking to recruit a highly motivated and confident person to join our hardworking Social Enterprise team in the role of Direct Payment Support Client Advisor.  A Direct Payment Advisor supports disabled people to employ Personal Assistants they recruit to support them in their own home, providing choice and control over how they manage their own care and support.

WECIL is undergoing significant change to redesign work across the organisation along Systems Thinking principles. The Direct Payments Support Team are the flagship of this process as they are currently evaluating performance and redesigning work to provide the most effective service to our customers.

The process of implementing the Principles of Systems Thinking is ongoing; the successful candidate will need to have the ability to use practically, and support colleagues across WECIL, in adopting our Principles of Systems Thinking. They will need to work in a dynamic way to redesign the way customer demand flows through the team and value is delivered for our customers – as such caseloads and practices will be subject to change during the successful candidate’s probationary period and the person appointed will contribute to the redesign work directly.
