About this role

Do the levels of financial insecurity and injustice in the UK leave you seething and impatient to have a real impact on making things better? Are you an expert in welfare benefits, dedicated to improving access to the benefits that your clients are entitled to? The Welfare Benefits Specialist is a vital part of the team delivering this work. We can promise that the level of impact of our work together will exceed anything you can achieve doing face-to-face work. For example, last year alone, 2.5 million people used our benefits calculator to understand what welfare benefits they were entitled to claim.

Turn2us is a national charity tackling poverty and the structural causes of poverty. We work with co-producers and partners to provide people in financial crisis with the means and agency to get back on their feet, build resilience, move forward with their lives and thrive.

If you’re a benefits expert who wants work that will stretch your intelligence and creativity, who is willing to be led by the people you want to support and who genuinely wants to have an outsized impact, we really want to meet you!
