We are keen to employ a diverse workforce that reflects the people of Scotland. We welcome applications from all backgrounds and particularly from groups currently under-represented, including people with disabilities, those from minority ethnic communities or from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds

This role is based within the Advice Shop, where the successful candidate will deliver on a new project funded by the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

In this role, you will provide advice, assistance and advocacy to help people work toward long term financial security. You will focus particularly on engaging with clients who are working with low income or experiencing in-work poverty.  

You will work with a caseload of clients to set goals and identify barriers to financial inclusion, working pro-actively to address these. This project offers a holistic service, providing advice in the areas of welfare benefits, debt, housing and energy advice, so experience in advice giving is essential.  Empathy, listening skills and understanding are vital to excel in this role.

Good partnership working is an essential part of this role and you will have the opportunity to build strong working relationships with key partner services and organisations, including local employers to raise awareness and develop activity to encourage engagement with the service.
