Pensionwise Guidance Specialist (Full time, 35 hours per week)

Understanding what to do with your pension and how to get the most out of it can be one of the biggest decisions someone can make.  More often than not, the people coming to Citizens Advice in relation to their pension are overwhelmed by the language and choice of options.  Many people have also lost track of what pensions they have been paying into and the opportunities they could provide.

The UK Government has therefore funded Citizens Advice to provide the fee and impartial Pensionwise Service, providing guidance to people about their defined contribution pension options. 

As a result of continued demand, the UK Government has sought to extend this service, so that we can provide increased support and reach even more people.  This has included the development of telephone and online advice and an expansion in the number of face to face Guidance Specialists.  Citizens Advice Edinburgh are seeking to recruit an adviser to expand their face to face service in Edinburgh.

Successful candidates will have a solid background and proven knowledge of pensions law and practice and a thorough knowledge of pension products.  You will have excellent communications skills and an understanding and sensitivity to wider retirement issues.  You will be able to work in a variety of environments with a range of stakeholders and bring a flexible and creative approach to developing the service to meet the needs of people across Edinburgh.
