Independent Lives Vacancy- Direct Payment Advisors

Independent Lives is recruiting two Direct Payments advisors. You will be working for one of the best employers in the country (Skills for Care Best Employer shortlist, 2017) supporting an award winning charity (Guardian Public Service Awards winner, 2016)!
Direct payment funding comes from either the Local Authority or NHS paid directly to an individual with disabilities and/or long term complex health conditions and enables people to have more control, to purchase the support that is right for them, either via a service or by employing their own support workers – known as personal assistants (PA).
We are looking for two compassionate and motivated people to help people explore how they want to manage their care and support and to talk through different options. Should they choose to employ PAs, you will provide step by step advice and guidance on how to become an employer using a range of resources and guidance to support you e.g. provide job description templates and advice on how to write these.
