Money Advice Trust
We are a national charity helping people across the UK to tackle their debts and manage their money with confidence.

We have a strong set of values that we live by: be balanced, be supportive, be innovative.
These values are reflected in our strategy, and the way we do things on a daily basis. We are a Living Wage Employer.
What our advisers say
"There is a massive commitment by everyone to doing the best for the people we help, and everything is informed by this; people are so helpful and supportive of each other, and the training reflects the complexity and importance of the work we do."

Our Social Committee arranges a variety of events and activities throughout the year. This includes Christmas and Summer gatherings for colleagues based at our Birmingham office and for colleagues based in our London office.
The people we help are really important to us and this is why we have a robust induction programme that will let you know who we are and how we run our services and departments. In addition to this we have a six-week Giving Good Debt Advice induction programme that all our debt advisers will complete.
We have in place a comprehensive upskilling programme for Triage Advisers to move up to specialist roles with National Debtline and Business Debtline, with full training and support provided along the way. As a growing organisation, we also have opportunities to advance to other roles via promotion, transfer or secondment, and we also offer apprenticeships for some roles.
As well as this our Wiseradviser service delivers debt advice training for all of our debt advisers that enables them to update and maintain their high standards of customer service and debt advice provision. These services are available as e-learning modules as well as classroom delivery modules.
We also encourage learning and development through a variety of other formats such as coaching, seminars, conferences, secondments, shadowing, and qualifications.
Learning and development
Our continued success depends upon achieving our objectives which are set annually and reviewed regularly in one-to-ones with your line manager. We will support and encourage you to develop your potential and to realise your aspirations for role and career progression.
