The Society provides direct financial support to single women who are aged 50 or over and resident in Scotland for at least 2 years. Following a strategy review, this new post will offer some beneficiaries additional support so that they can improve the quality of their lives and make the most of the opportunity offered by our financial support. While an understanding of welfare rights / money advice will be important, this is not primarily an advice role. Instead we are looking for a candidate with the holistic support / coaching skills to help older women living in poverty to become more financially resilient. The post will also involve other aspects of casework including assessing new applications etc.
In return we offer excellent conditions, flexible working and the opportunity to have significant input into the development of an innovative project. While the post is home based, it will involve travel throughout central Scotland. It is funded for 3.5 years initially with funding available for extension if successful. PVG membership is essential. The Society is a registered Scottish Charity SC016095 and is striving to be an equal opportunity employer.
