We have exciting full and part-time opportunities within our Help Hub Advisor team.  We are looking to recruit people that can respond and provide support regarding HertsHelp services while assessing support needs via a triage process. 

Successful candidates will make referrals to advocacy support services and arrange for appropriate external service referral, signposting and provision of relevant information, advice and guidance.

Giving people a voice – and making sure it is heard – is something POhWER does every day. We are all about promoting equality, challenging unfairness and giving disadvantaged and vulnerable people access to high quality information, advice and advocacy services.

We are looking to recruit people who share our core values and can demonstrate that they apply and live those values in their daily working practice.

Successful candidate’s will be supporting a wide range of vulnerable adults often with profound and multiple needs, affected by significant health and social care issues who find it difficult to speak up for themselves, so you will have strong experience of this type of work, along with a good working knowledge of public and voluntary organisations.

You will be a confident positive team player, able to work in partnership with clients and professionals, gaining an understanding of their issues by listening, exploring options and taking action as needed.

Our ideal candidates will have worked in information and advice services or similar roles including experience working with vulnerable adults within the health, social care or voluntary sectors. 

You will need to have a flexible attitude and must be comfortable handling highly sensitive information whilst able to work well independently and confidently on behalf of others. Strong communication skills and time management skills will be required and you will need to be computer literate.

Because of the nature and location of the role, applicants must live within commutable distance from our Stevenage Head Office.
