Money Advice Scotland has a membership drawn from local authorities, CABx, housing associations, voluntary sector projects, insolvency practitioners, all of whom have an interest in the provision of money advice and/or financial capability/education.

We particularly wish to appoint a Subject Matter Expert who has significant knowledge of money advice, writing training materials, including assessment and evaluation of learning.

Money Advice Scotland supports flexible working. We need to recruit the right person with the right skills to deliver the content for the training programme. It is an exciting time of change, and the blended approach is enabling us to reach out to communities across Scotland.
