Job details:

The Money Charity is the national financial capability charity which helps people across the UK stay on top of their money to help them live happier and more positive lives as a result.

A core part of the charity’s offering works to help adults build the skills, knowledge, attitudes and behaviours to manage their money well. This includes the delivery of money management workshops in community settings and workplaces. In addition the charity produces printed and digital tools and materials to help everyone make the most of their money throughout life.  The charity also works with the financial services industry to improve practices, both from a preventative financial capability perspective and when things go wrong.

We are looking to recruit to this exciting role, which will lead on the charity’s work with adults and the industry. The Adult & Industry Programmes Manager will report directly to the Chief Executive and will manage the adult team. The role is crucial to the success of the charity and the applicant will hold responsibility for development and management of all aspects of our adult & industry work, in particular growing and marketing this area of our work.  This includes day to day responsibility for staff, relationships and budgets for our existing programmes and projects, as well as the opportunity to lead on creating new and exciting ways to reach many more adults. 

The right person for this role will need to be able to hit the ground running.

They will need to be able to take charge of their own workload and that of their small team.  The successful candidate will be an advocate for the ethos and culture of the organisation and will be willing to do what is required in order to achieve our strategic vision.

This is an exciting and varied role - which will provide an excellent opportunity for the applicant to work within an innovative team and charity and will provide the chance to really make an impact.  We hope over time that the successful applicant will develop and increase this area of our work, so development and growth is a key focus.  This means that there is potential for this role to become part of our Senior Management Team, and for a change in title to reflect this.
