Clean Slate is an exciting and innovative social enterprise working towards a world where everyone can provide for themselves and their families, where society addresses everyone’s needs and where it does not cost more to be poor. We believe in fair opportunity for all so anyone willing and able can access employment. We enable people to improve their financial wellbeing, supporting them to access the help they need to manage their money well and find work. Clean Slate, in partnership with Quids In! magazine, is re-writing the rulebook on helping low income households to become better off.
Clean Slate is expanding. We are looking for Support Workers to join the bank of staff we can call on in Bath and North East Somerset and Gloucestershire to support us in delivering a remote service at Quids In Centres by outreach to local people struggling with their finances: the risk of debt, rent arears and ultimately even homelessness. You will make contact with new referrals by phone and email and provide information, support and guidance, including signposting them to specialist advice and regulated bodies. You will help people to use digital tools to be better off. You will support clients to build their skills, take control of their finances and find employment. You will work with partner agencies and statutory bodies in the local area and will assist us with the money skills and employment workshops and training run by our tutors.
To succeed in this role, you must be a great communicator with a naturally coaching style and the ability to provide a service that is welcoming to all. You will have insight into the needs of vulnerable people from diverse backgrounds and understand the need for confidentiality when working with personal information. You must be a competent user of IT, including email and using the Internet, and an organized administrator. It would be helpful if you already have an understanding of discrimination and equality and diversity issues, including those not set out in law such as the ‘poverty premium’. The ability to speak Polish, Romanian, or the language of another group that is affected by financial and digital exclusion would be an advantage but sharing our values is essential.
As we are looking for bank staff, this is an ideal opportunity for anyone studying, with caring responsibilities or who already has a part-time job. We can offer you £12.09 to £12.63 per hour, depending on the skills you bring to the role, and would welcome a discussion on how this work could fit around the other commitments in your life. Other staff benefits include access to mental and emotional health support via our partner agencies and opportunities to further develop your skills, including by our own excellent in-house training. Our culture is open and we encourage everyone to contribute to the direction of the organization. If this sounds like a role where you could flourish, please apply by Monday 30th November indicating which area you are applying for.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
