Using your community services skills, you will assess client needs, eligibility for our services, assist with loan applications, maintain excellent customer records, make appropriate referrals to internal or external supports and assist with day-to-day operations of the Good Money site.

The role will see you working in a small, close-knit team where warmth, professionalism and diligence are shared values.

Responsibilities

  • Greet clients and guide them through the Good Money finance options.
  • Respond to enquiries (phone, face-to-face and online), assess eligibility, determine customer needs and respond appropriately (this may be through providing direct services, information provision, or referrals to internal and external supports). Assist people from diverse backgrounds with complex needs in a way that is respectful, appropriate and professional.
  • Utilise local networks to provide information and make referrals to other support services, as required.
  • Assist clients with all aspects of loan applications, including conducting one-on-one interviews with clients, preparing a budget with them, and checking supporting documentation.
  • Respond to enquiries regarding existing loans and ongoing loans management (this may include following up with customers who have missed repayments).

Qualifications and Experience

  • We’re looking for someone with experience working with disadvantaged/vulnerable clients. Studies in community development or financial counselling are a bonus but not essential. Most importantly we’re looking for a customer focused person and a team player.
  • If you are warm, professional, committed and reliable and find it easy to learn new systems and processes, we’d love to hear from you.
