Job Details

This is an exciting time for this charity in Buckinghamshire. Like the constituent organisations that will form it have done for many years, this new charity will provide independent and impartial advice on debt, benefits, housing, employment and family issues that will help people get their lives back on track, as well as using on-the-ground knowledge to improve local and national social policy.

While the merger was planned long before the COVID-19 crisis, this newly-formed, larger organisation will be better placed to meet the increasing demand for our services. It also matches the geography of one of our primary funders, the newly-formed unity authority, Buckinghamshire Council, which will allow them to build strong working relationships at county level.

Each of the constituent charities have considerable areas of strength, providing services that respond to the need in their local communities. The charity must maintain these strengths and the local “feel” of services, whilst also ensuring the same high quality, availability and consistency of services across the county, and developing a strong, shared internal culture across the new charity.

We are looking for a Money Advice Manager to join the team.
