About the job

We are looking for experienced online learning content writers, willing to work on a module-based contract for services, to write the content for our debt advice learning programmes.


Citizens Advice Scotland in collaboration with Money Advice Scotland created the MATRICS Learning Programme. Our mission is to produce confident and compliant debt advisers in Scotland, by developing a well-structured blended learning programme aligned to the Scottish National Standards for Information and Advice Providers (SNSIAP).


Our Money Advice Consultants write the briefs for all the debt advice learning modules in a templated wireframe, with clear guidelines and additional resources that will need to be consulted in order to write the content. Our online learning content writers will then be required to develop short online learning modules using these briefs.

We use a variety of ways to develop our debt advice learning programmes, from text, animations, videos, podcasts, interactive and applied activities, to quizzes and competency-based assessments. We aim to create short online learning modules, which won’t take longer than 10-20 minutes to complete, therefore the length of content shouldn’t go over 10 pages templated document. As point of reference, not longer than 2500-3500 words/module.


We are looking for experienced online learning content writers, willing to work on a module-based contract for services, flexible hours but tight deadlines.

Ideally, you will be a subject matter expert in one or more of the below, but this is not absolutely essential:

  • Soft skills (communication, interviewing skills, etc.)
  • Digital skills (phone, email, software, etc.)
  • Scottish law
  • Money Advice.

To be successful in this contract role, you will:

  • Have excellent English writing skills: proofreading and editing skills
  • Have a passion for writing and research content
  • Be flexible, reliable and able to work according to deadlines
  • Be willing to follow guidelines and produce high quality content
  • Have some affinity with or interest in debt advice-related content.
How to apply

Please write a short (up to 500 words) personal statement to explain why you are suited for this role, detailing your expected rate of pay per module, what your available hours are and when you would be available to begin work. Please send this, along with your your CV and and a sample of your previous work (or a link to live content you have written) to
