Job Description

The Money Advice Trust is seeking to appoint Trustees to its Board.  This is a unique opportunity to play a part in the future of one of the UK’s most influential debt advice charities.

The Trust helps hundreds of thousands of people in financial difficulty each year directly through our advice services, supports debt advisers through training, and is at the forefront of a dynamic and high profile policy area, which attracts significant political and public interest.

There has never been a greater need for accessible, effective debt advice which changes lives for the better.  Our vision is to help people across the UK to tackle their debts and manage their money with confidence, and our strategic plan focuses on how we will help more people, more effectively.  The Trust:

  • Provides telephone, webchat and online debt advice to the public and small businesses via National Debtline and Business Debtline;
  • Seeks to work more effectively with other key charities in this area;
  • Is a centre of practical and policy expertise, thought leadership, training and support for the free debt advice sector, and training and consultancy which helps creditor organisations identify, understand and support people in vulnerable circumstances.

We are ideally looking for someone whose profile includes a background in consumer insight and debt advice, experience of growing a commercial enterprise, and/or financial skills.  We are also interested in appointing people with diverse backgrounds, skills and experiences, and we welcome applications from all sections of the community.

Trustee positions are unremunerated, voluntary positions.  Reasonable travel and subsistence expenses can be reimbursed.  The time commitment is a minimum of five hours per month.  For more information on the Trust, please visit our website www.moneyadvicetrust.org and to download a recruitment pack, click on vacancies.
