The Role



The UK government are currently implementing many changes to the welfare system.

In particular, the launch of Universal Credit and Personal Independence Payment will be two of the biggest changes being made to the welfare system since the 1940's.

IncomeMAX CIC are on a mission to help people understand these changes.

It will be incredibly important for professionals working with low income households and disabled people to get updated on the changes so IncomeMAX, in partnership with Advice UK will be running a series of learning events to enlighten and inform!

Attracting delegates from a range of sectors (e.g. financial services, water, energy, health, charities, social enterprises, housing associations, local authorities and debt management) IncomeMAX Learning Events will be fast-paced, informative, practical training seminars which provide delegates with key information on the various welfare changes.

The Marketing & Media Officer will help us market the learning events across the UK, through our website, social media and over the telephone.

Responsible for making these events a sell-out success, the successful candidate will have a unique opportunity to take resposibility of their own project, with full support from IncomeMAX and Advice UK.

Our first event (GETTING TO KNOW...PIP) is on 29th April 2013 at London's Living Room in City Hall. A team of expert trainers, experts and very special guests have been assembled to help delegates understand this new disability benefit.

So... it's fair to say you'll hit the ground running!

If you are great with people, passionate about projects which help people, social media savvy and telephone talk terrific we want to hear from you.

Come and join our friendly, buzzy, busy team and help us make IncomeMAX Learning Events a sucess.
