Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) is a rare, progressive neurological condition with about 3,500 people diagnosed with MSA in the UK and Ireland. The MSA Trust is the only organisation specifically serving the needs of people living with MSA and those affected by it, such as friends and family.
We are recruiting for an experienced Social Welfare Specialist to complement the support given by our MSA Nurse Specialist Team.
You will work with people affected by MSA to help them access the right support when they most need it.
With a background in advice work, including health and social care service provision, you will have exceptional people skills. You will have significant experience of direct client work, including advocating for clients and supporting people to successfully obtain relevant benefits, care support and other health and welfare services. Current knowledge of social care, CHC funding and welfare rights, especially disability and carers benefits, is essential.
You will need to be self-sufficient in IT and be able to ensure accurate monitoring of casework and impact. We are small team of less than 12 staff so close team working, whilst being able to work independently, is essential.
