Can you engage and inspire young people?
Do you have a creative facilitation style that leaves a lasting impression?
Then being a MyBnk Education Officer might be for you…
MyBnk is the largest, specialist financial education charity for children and young people. We work in partnership with schools, youth organisations and local authorities and, increasingly, directly with young people, in-person, virtually and online. Our mission is to empower young people to take charge of their future to make money choices themselves. We are about ‘doing something that works’ not just ‘doing something’ and we are committed to the strongest evidence of impact.
Together with young people, we have created innovative, high impact and high energy workshops that bring money to life, covering topics such as saving, budgeting, debt, independent-living, and student finance. Under the Money Twist, Money Works and The Money House brands we build money knowledge, mind-sets and habits and embed skills to survive and thrive. We leverage our expertise in content and training to support partners and to create systemic change. We are the winners of the 2021 London Homelessness prevention award. Three quarters of our work is with young adults most in need.
Since 2007 we have helped over 290,000 young people. From this strong base, we have entered an exciting period of growth, taking our in-person programmes national, and adding online services accessed directly by young people.
MyBnk’s financial education is focused on Need:
• Young adults in the greatest need – Who cannot afford mistakes.
• School children with low financial capability – who need help most
The best times to make a difference:
• The very young – When habits are set.
• All young adults entering independence – Making choices now.
• Aged 11-16 increasingly engaging with money – Preparing for the future.
And on influencing key stakeholders:
• Government, commerce, partners
You will organise and deliver MyBnk’s programmes in youth organisations . While not geographically restricted, we envisage a majority of delivery to happen in Aberdeen City & shire, with some work reaching further afield. Programme delivery will be centred around supporting more in need young adults aged 16-25.
