Citizens Advice Peterborough are able to offer paid training opportunities to three individuals to provide valuable information and guidance to even more local people.

This two-year funding from the Controlling Migration Fund will resource a project called Shared Vision; which will see the three trained workers giving advice in new outreach services located in community based locations such as GP practices and other community hubs throughout Peterborough.

The primary aim is to increase the provision of free face to face general advice, by providing an increased number of trained advisers, within financially excluded areas and to deprived communities.

Trainees will not need to have experience of providing general advice or case work but will need to demonstrate: -

• The ability to communicate effectively and sensitively with clients,

• Educated to degree level preferably in Social Sciences

• Good written and numerical skills

• Be a confident self-starter with an organised approach to work.
