CAP debt coach needed

We are looking for a CAP Debt Coach at C3 church, Cheltenham. Unmanageable debt is a real and growing problem in Gloucestershire and we are committed to meeting this need through our CAP Debt Centre, which has been running successfully for almost 9 years. The Centre is managed by C3 church and supported by many local churches in Cheltenham and beyond.

By expanding our capacity through the employment of a CAP Debt Coach, we will increase our impact on our community, especially our support for those who are struggling under the burden of debt.

The CAP Debt Coach will assist the CAP Debt Centre Manager in the efficient running of the CAP Debt Centre and achieving the aims of CAP – seeing people freed from the entrapment of debt and coming to a personal faith in Jesus Christ. You will visit clients in their homes, delivering debt advice, encouraging them to work with CAP, communicating affordable budgets and repayment plans and supporting them through their debt management plan.

Part of the role, when not seeing clients of their own, may be to help with admin tasks, food shopping, befriending clients and helping with the monthly CAP lunches. We would like the DC to be available to attend monthly prayer meetings if possible and also to attend regional CAP days.

You will be compassionate, a good listener, and able to relate to the poor, needy and vulnerable with a desire to solve financial problems, while sharing the Christian faith. It is also important to be a good communicator, and proficient in the use of media and IT.

Working alongside the CAP Debt Centre Manager you will communicate the mission and culture of CAP, in the community and local churches, continuing to expand our network of external referral agencies, while at the same time helping to build the team of volunteers.

Full training will be provided by a dedicated team.
