Salary scale:
£37,500 to £44,000 per annum

37 (full time). Flexible work patterns considered.


About us:
Citizens Advice Plymouth is a medium-size charity which is part of the Citizens Advice national network of over 200 organisations delivering advice and information across England and Wales. Our main purpose is to deliver quality advice and information, engaging with clients through a range of routes.

Citizens Advice Plymouth has grown tremendously during the past four years, and we are now one of the largest local offices in the Citizens Advice network.

We are not a traditional Citizens Advice because over half of our funding is from national corporate partnerships, meaning we support clients across the United Kingdom via telephone and digital services.

During the last eighteen months we have worked hard to ensure we sustain our growth and are able to offer a competitive service to potential corporate partners. We have carefully reviewed the utilisation of our workforce and developed our understanding of social return on investment.

About the role:
We are looking to appoint a passionate and energetic leader who is confident in developing ambitious strategies and able to take our business to the next level.

You will be a natural salesperson and able to work well under pressure. You will not shy away from ambitious income generation targets and will continue to build a ‘gold standard’ brand.
