Job description

Would you like to join a dynamic, growing organisation where you can really make an impact, not just on the company but to improve the lives of people in Northern Ireland? 


Advice Space, formerly Citizens Advice Belfast, is all about making sure that advice services are accessible and available across Northern Ireland. Providing a high-quality service for more than 50 years, we support clients in delivering specialist advice and speaking up for them where we can.


Funded by Macmillan Cancer Support, we are currently seeking an experienced Benefits Service Adviser who will undertake casework, assisting clients to access their entitlements to welfare benefits and other sources of financial help. You will have an opportunity to really make a difference to people at a very difficult time in their lives. You will provide this service to patients, family, carers, social work staff and other cancer support service workers, who come into contact with the service.


To be successful, you will need an understanding of the financial implications of a cancer diagnosis, along with a minimum of 1 years’ experience gained within the last two years, providing benefits advice to the public.

You will have completed a recognised Adviser Training Programme and be able to demonstrate a client centred approach of understanding, empathy and flexibility with people coming to terms with difficult situations.


If you feel you have the right skills and experience, then please apply today.


The charity strongly believes in an inclusive and supportive work culture. They recognise the importance of a good work-life balance and the need for a fulfilling and rewarding career. They understand the changing demands of life and the need for flexibility in working arrangements to meet these demands. They are an equal opportunity employer and as such will consider all qualified applicants regardless of gender, race, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age.
