Citizens Advice Edenbridge & Westerham has opportunities for volunteers to train as advisers. Advisers are at the heart of delivering the Citizens Advice service. Our advisers help our clients with a wide range of problems, including benefits, debt, employment and housing issues.
You don’t need specific qualifications or experience, as advisers you will receive full training and always have a supervisor available. As an adviser, you could be:
- exploring and identifying the clients’ problems;
- researching information using Citizens Advice resources;
- explaining options to clients;
- helping clients make informed decisions about how to deal with their problems.
- you could also be acting on behalf of the client, negotiating, drafting or writing letters, making phone calls or appropriate referrals.
