Assessment and Income Assistant - Financial Assessment and Income

As part of our greener future strategies and our commitment to creating a healthy work-life balance, we welcome a conversation with you regarding our remote working options. Remote working to us is a balance of spending time in our communities, our offices and working from home or wherever works best.

The starting salary for this role is £26,080 per annum based on working 36 hours per week.

A great opportunity has arisen for enthusiastic and ambitious individuals to join our Financial Assessments & Income Collection service. You will be the first point of contact and source of information for Surrey residents on how the council charges for care and support services. Assessment & Income Assistants will be co-located with Adult Social Care and finance staff in various settings across the county, and location preferences can be discussed at interview.

These are critical roles at the forefront of the service. You will be required to explain the paying for care process, support residents to use the council’s online financial assessment and payment tools and to actively identify barriers to residents making regular payments of social care charges. You will be required to co-ordinate visits for officers where necessary, answer general telephone and email enquiries and allocate more complex casework where necessary.

With the upcoming social care charging reforms this is an exciting time to join Adult Social Care, as we strive to enable residents to self-serve using online tools and this is a great opportunity for someone with a high level of customer service to join us on this journey.

We are looking for individuals with a flexible approach and a willingness to tackle a wide range of administrative and customer service activities. Flexible and agile working is supported, and successful applicants will be encouraged to explore personal development opportunities across the service.

At Surrey, our values and behaviours are just as important as our skills and abilities. They shape who we are as an organisation. Find out more about the values we follow.

Additional Information
