An experienced Welfare Benefits Caseworker is sought to deliver our Macmillan Cancer Support (MCS) Project.

This project has given equal access to all people affected by cancer in SW London and integrates further with MCS direct services. The postholder will have prime responsibility for ensuring delivery of the five day a week benefits caseworker service with support from support workers. The postholder will be expected to offer outreach appointments at the Macmillan Centres at Croydon University and Epsom & St Helier Hospitals.
You will need at least two years in depth experience as a trained welfare benefits Citizens Advice caseworker or equivalent. Own transport is essential as there is a requirement to undertake outreach appointments. An enhanced DBS check will be required for this role.
