Made of Money development worker
Closing date: 5.00pm Thursday 14th September, 2017
“It was like a journey. You look back on how far you’ve come and it makes you strong”
Made of Money participant
Established in 2005, Made of Money is a project that seeks to transform families’ relationships to money and each other. This is addressed through the delivery of locally-focused workshops for those on low incomes and a national training programme supporting professionals across the UK to apply similar ideas in their own communities.
You will primarily be working on developing a new project that will support parents of children aged 7-11. Building on Made of Money’s existing firm foundations, this pilot will involve a more comprehensive support service for parents; using one to one coaching, group sessions, and some digital nudges to assist them in increasing the financial capability of their children.
A smaller amount of your time will be spent working on the professional training arm of Made of Money, sharing our knowledge with a range of other practitioners across the UK.
We are looking for two new colleagues who are keen to learn, eager to stretch themselves, and excited about contributing to one of QSA’s flagship projects as it continues to evolve.
The role – and the organisation – will suit someone who is looking for a close-knit and supportive working environment, who understands the need to be flexible and sometimes all-hands-on-deck. The rewards will be in having a varied workload, within a friendly work environment and making a direct contribution to the charitable aims of QSA.
