Citizens Advice Gateshead is an independent charity and an affiliated member of the national Citizens Advice network. Our vision is for a fair society for all, with lives well lived. Our mission is to mobilise knowledge so the system works, it works for everyone, and it powers the changes we need to be an equal and inclusive society. To achieve this, we deliver services locally to almost 13,000 people a year, and support over 400,000 people nationally through digital advice and information services, including the discrimination advice service.

The role

This newly formed role has been introduced to manage all aspects of our highly valued Money Advice and Pension service contract. It will involve monitoring and continually improving the quality and recording of our debt advice through structured, adviser-centred supervision, supporting Citizens Advice Gateshead to continually improve the effectiveness and consistency of our working practices and the support we deliver to clients. Where appropriate the Money Advice Specialist will also undertake debt casework to provide the best possible outcome for clients facing more complex and challenging issues.

What you can expect

The Money Advice Specialist will join a charity with strong social values and a clear vision that is innovative and forward thinking.
