    Citizens Advice and Rights Fife (CARF) is an independent and innovative advice organisation providing holistic advice and support to local people. Its service continues to grow and expand, and the team is now delighted to recruit a new Income Maximisation Worker to join the highly successful Making it Work for Families project.

The service will also actively refer both internally and externally where further issues are identified e.g. debt issues.

    Experience of working in an advice giving capacity and/or a knowledge or interest in the social security system would be advantageous but not essential.
