Background

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 strand of the charity’s offering works to help young people build the skills, knowledge, attitudes and behaviours to manage their money well. This includes the delivery of free money management workshops in secondary schools and colleges across the UK, which have reached over 160,000 students so far. Workshops are delivered by a pool of self-employed freelance consultants across the UK.

We offer several interactive financial education workshops for Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4 and Post 16 students. These workshops last for either 60 minutes or 100 minutes depending on the school’s requirements.

All our workshops cover budgeting and the importance of savings, understanding credit and financial products, amongst other things. The workshops are designed to be interactive, engaging and bring the topic of financial management to life. For more information, see our website here.

We are looking for freelance consultants based across the UK to add to our network of consultants who deliver workshops in their local area. Applicants should have excellent presentational and interpersonal skills, as well as relevant experience in engaging with young people. They should be confident with using technology, and have enthusiasm for the charity’s aims and objectives.

Consultants also play a role in promoting the workshops, which means they should be able to forge strong relationships with teachers and schools. It also means consultants can control their own diaries and commitments, meaning that this is an ideal opportunity for those looking for flexibility.
