All Citizens Advice Bureaux in Scotland must comply with the Scottish Association of Citizens Advice Bureaux Membership Scheme which sets out the quality assurance standards to which all bureaux are expected to operate. The Citizens Advice Scotland Quality Assurance team are responsible for auditing all bureaux against these standards and reporting to the Association’s Membership Standards Committee. The audit process consists of two parts:
• Quality of Advice Assessment which assesses the quality of advice and information provided by bureaux at the point of delivery and ensures that all bureaux in Scotland meet a minimum standard of service, in terms of the process of advice giving, and the actual technical accuracy of that advice.
• Organisational Audit which examines the written policies and procedures provided by the bureau together with other evidence gathered through interviews with bureau paid staff, volunteers and governing body representatives.
The successful delivery of the SACAB Membership Scheme audit programme requires centralised co-ordination. This role will be allocated responsibility for the co-ordination of the Quality of Advice Assessment programme, ensuring successful delivery and development where appropriate.
As a Quality of Advice Assessment Co-ordinator you will be involved in co-ordinating Citizens Advice Scotland staff and local bureaux to enable effective delivery of the quarterly Quality of Advice monitoring schedule, as well as supporting the Citizens Advice Scotland Quality Assurance team by providing specialist administrative support.
This is a key role in the operation of membership scheme quality of advice assessment function.
