Current Opportunities

In late 2017, SIFET advertised for new financial education officers (FEOs) to cover schools in the following four areas in Scotland:-

a) Dundee or Angus,
b) The South West (Dumfries & Galloway)
c) Ayrshire
d) West of Glasgow (including Inverclyde, Renfrewshire and Argyll & Bute).

This is the text of SIFET’s recent advert which provides outline details of the role as an FEO.

As an FEO, you are assigned to cover a specific region, close to your home. You would be self-employed but you would represent SIFET at all times and would be paid for sessions run in schools as well as travel expenses and for attending occasional team meetings for professional development. FEOs have considerable flexibility in managing their own diaries to deliver workshops in schools, typically from September until the end of March.

The workshops are designed to raise the pupils’ financial awareness and include money management, budgeting, and savings. The programme is delivered with all the resources, materials and training supplied by SIFET.

SIFET welcomes applicants from all backgrounds but it is crucial to demonstrate proven strong presentation skills and an ability to engage effectively with young people. It is also important to have a good understanding of, and interest in, the financial issues facing young people.

If you are looking for a flexible, term time, self-employed role and feel that you might be a good fit for SIFET, please forward your CV, including details of your location within Scotland. We are interested in particular in hearing from individuals who may be based in Dundee or Angus, the South West (Dumfries & Galloway) and West of Glasgow (including Ayrshire, Inverclyde, Renfrewshire and Argyll & Bute).

Even though there are no other specific openings within SIFET for new FEOs opportunities, SIFET is interested in hearing from individuals who may have the relevant skills and experience to take on this type of role.

Any applications (to include CVs) should be sent to SIFET’s Project Manager, Paul Heward – paul.heward@sifet.org.uk
