More about the job

About the job

Parkhead CAB is seeking applications for a suitably experienced and enthusiastic individual to join our staff team. 

The post of Money Adviser is a vital post with Parkhead Citizens Advice Bureau.  We believe strongly in making a difference for our clients.  Our aim is to ensure that no one suffers through lack of knowledge of their rights and entitlements and that equally through social policy action we strive to make long lasting changes for everyone.

The post holder will contribute to this through providing money, financial capability and income maximisation.  The applicant must have a proven record in voluntary sector money advice and welfare benefits knowledge for effective income maximisation.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone who wants a job that makes a real difference. The post holder will be working with colleagues and supporting highly trained volunteers to deliver money advice to our clients. You should have advice delivery experience and thrive on a challenge and assisting your clients to tackle their issues and support them to move forward and plan long-term solutions rather than a quick fix. We believe strongly in delivering a quality advice service in line with the Scottish National Standards. We are also committed to staff and volunteer training and we will ensure that you are fully supported in your role.

Parkhead CAB prides itself in recruiting staff who want to make a positive difference to the lives of those around them. Our priority is to make a welcoming and trusted environment for clients and an enjoyable work place for our staff and volunteers.  If this sounds like something you’d be interested in then we would love to hear from you.    

Due to current Covid restrictions interviews will be held via secure zoom or MS teams.

We are currently providing advice services via remote access and safe face to face for emergency vulnerable clients only.  The post holder should expect to be office and home based.  Post Covid we expect to continue a blend of remote and office working and we will continue our commitment to flexible working for the benefit of our clients and employees.  Some of our flexible options have included working with our staff around school start and finish times to enable those with caring commitments to take up employment.

How to apply

Closing date for applications is Monday 7th December 2020.

Interviews will ideally be held on Thursday 10th December 2020.
