Freelance Adviser Positions

The WBU uses experienced benefits advisers on a freelance basis to provide occasional cover of our advice line (phone and email). This allows us to obtain extra support in busy times or to cover annual leave and sickness.

Freelance advisers join the team in the York office to provide the service.

The WBU advice line operates Monday to Friday between 9 am to 1 pm and 1 pm to 5 pm and work is allocated to cover a four-hour morning or afternoon session.

Freelance advisers are paid £20 per hour plus up to £20 towards travel costs.

We receive a wide range of interesting calls – some quite straightforward and others needing more information and guidance. The team here will support you during the session.

Work is offered on a sessional basis and we are unable to guarantee a minimum number of sessions.
