Job description

Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) is a rare, progressive neurological condition which affects around 3,500 people in the UK and Ireland. The MSA Trust is the only organisation specifically serving the needs of people living with MSA and those affected by it, such as friends and family.

We are recruiting another Social Welfare Specialist to join our existing Social Welfare service and to complement the support given by our MSA Health Care Specialist Team.

You will work with people affected by MSA to help them access the right support when they most need it.

With a background in advocacy/advice work, including health and social care service provision, you will have exceptional people skills. You will have experience of direct client work, including advocating for clients and supporting people to successfully obtain relevant benefits, care support and other health and welfare services. Current knowledge of social care, Continuing Healthcare (CHC) funding and welfare rights, especially disability and carers benefits, is important.

You will need to be self-sufficient in IT and be able to ensure accurate monitoring of casework and impact. We are small team so close team working, whilst being able to work independently, is essential.

Benefits include: 6% pension contribution, 33 days annual leave (inclusive of bank holidays), long service sabbaticals, death in service benefit three times your salary, cycle to work scheme, season ticket loan, free eye tests and a contribution towards glasses and more.

Location: Home based. Option of working in our London office (SE16) if you prefer.

Closing Date: 5th January 2024 at 5pm. This role may close early if enough applications are received.

Interviews: Week beginning the 22nd January 2024
