About Money Advice Plus
Money Advice Plus is a registered charity, working both locally in Sussex and nationwide. Our mission is to help people manage their money effectively. We do this by providing free innovative money handling and advice services, working in partnership with other agencies. Our independent, confidential and flexible approach is tailored to individuals’ needs, allowing us to reach those who find it most difficult to access advice.
Our vision is a community where people have the advice and support they need to manage their money effectively, helping them to maintain control of their lives, promoting greater peace of mind.
You will be joining a large team of Money Advisers based in our Hove office, who provide debt,
benefits and money management advice and casework across a range of projects. We are looking
for an experienced Adviser who will feel confident in quickly building a caseload of short to
medium term specialist debt and benefits advice and casework clients.
We routinely deliver our service through one-to-one appointments from our offices, in different
local outreach venues, by telephone, and occasionally via home visits, as needed. We also provide
drop-in services at Foodbanks and other venues across the city. Since March 2020 most of our
advice has been delivered by phone, but we are beginning our return to outreach venues and
seeing clients face to face, and this aspect of our work will be increasing in coming months.
The work is varied and interesting, and our team are very experienced in working with clients who
often find it hard to engage with advice, so you will become agile in working in flexible and
innovative ways to help clients find tailored and sustainable outcomes to meet their advice needs.
We’re a friendly and supportive team, and you will have regular casework supervision sessions, ad
hoc assistance on hand from our Duty Supervisors, and access to relevant training to enable you to
work to our AQS standards. We’re committed to supporting you to do well in this role.
Please note this role requires a satisfactory Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly Criminal
Records Bureau) check (to be completed through Money Advice Plus on appointment).
