An exciting and high-profile role has arisen at Money Advice Trust for an experienced media and public relations professional, with a passion for using their communications skills for positive change.  

The Money Advice Trust is an influential national charity at the forefront of a dynamic policy area that attracts significant political and public interest. We support people through our advice services, train the free advice sector and creditors, and campaign for change - helping hundreds of thousands of people each year to tackle their debts and manage their money with confidence.
