MAP is a charity providing free and independent advice, counselling, youth work and education for young people.

Join MAP in supporting young people across Norfolk

At MAP, we are advisers, counsellors, youth workers and other professionals working together to provide the best support we can to young people aged 11-25, in a way that works for them.

At MAP we work for social justice. We are an inclusive workplace, welcoming everybody to bring their authentic whole selves to work every day. Upholding equality at MAP is not only about eliminating discrimination; it is about actively recognising and valuing difference; making the most of everyone’s potential.

The Generalist Advice Service at MAP offers advice on a range of issues that affect young people, such as Housing, Benefits, Debt, Sexual Health and Employment. We operate primarily via drop ins in Norwich, Great Yarmouth and Kings Lynn. As an Adviser you would deliver generalist advice as part of a skilled, dynamic and caring team. The successful candidate will be based at our Kings Lynn office, part of our newest and fastest growing drop in, and supported by a Senior Adviser.

We are currently looking for a self-motivated, hands on and autonomous Adviser to provide advice to young people. The ideal candidate will have relevant experience working with vulnerable or hard to reach young people in our age range of 11-25. You will have experience of delivering social welfare advice or will demonstrate a keen understanding and ability to learn this area of work. You will also have knowledge of other local services which a young person can be signposted and referred to.

The successful candidate will be highly organised and able to keep clear, up to date and accurate records so that young people receive a seamless service when they visit our drop ins. You will have experience of working in a team and enjoy working in a fast-paced changeable environment and will also have experience in managing the risks that arise when working with young people.

Advisers at MAP are provided with appropriate relevant training in Social Welfare Advice and continued training and development as they advance their advice practice skills.

If you have any questions about the role please contact Georgie Murdoch, Senior Adviser, at georgiemurdoch@map.uk.net.

The successful candidate will receive a range of benefits including:

  • competitive salary
  • 30 days holiday increasing to 35 after 5 years’ service (plus bank holidays)
  • generous pension contributions
  • company sick pay
  • Counselling and support through an Employee Assistance Programme
  • excellent on-going training and development opportunities
