Charity Link helps thousands of local people facing poverty, hardship or crisis. We help by finding funds for people and children in need to purchase basic items such as beds, cookers, clothing, and in emergencies, food. These items can have a huge impact of people’s lives and ensure that local people and children are warm, safe and fed.  We are now looking to expand our team and recruit a new Caseworker.

You will be responsible for managing a caseload of applications for people who are in need. Your job will be to prioritise these, assess applications, gather information and make clear concise written applications to UK trusts, secure funds to purchase goods to help.

The post will be based mainly at the Leicester office, but will require occasional travel in Leicestershire, Rutland and Northamptonshire.  

You will need to have excellent communication skills, be computer literate and be able to deal sensitively with a wide range of people. It is also essential that you are a team player and can demonstrate your ability to work well under pressure to meet deadlines and targets alike. You will need to be able to drive, have a full clean driving license and regular access to a vehicle.

This role offers a great opportunity to make a tangible difference to the lives of local people and children, and the wider community.

As an equal opportunity employer, we would particularly welcome applications from people with an ethnic minority background or those with a disability, as we are currently underrepresented in our workforce.
