Money Advice Service - Peer Reviewer

Money Advice Service - Peer Reviewer Recruitment

02:02PM

The Money Advice Service Peer Review Scheme has now been operational for the last 7 months, initially rolled out to organisations receiving Money Advice Service funding in England and Wales. We are entering the second year of delivery in the Autumn, which will include a wider delivery remit comprising expansion into Northern Ireland and potentially with national telephone based advice providers. We have now launched a second phase of recruitment and are now seeking to appoint additional resources of between 12-14 experienced debt advisers into the role of a Peer Reviewer.  Applications are invited from those individuals that are interested in the role and that meet the essential requirements as defined with the Person Specification. 

 

 The principles of our approach to delivering the Peer Review Scheme are as follows:

 

  • Transparent delivery managed by an impartial provider using non-conflicted Peer Reviewers.
  • Desktop based process of peer review activity totalling approximately 3.5 days per organisation.
  • Stakeholder engagement with MAS funded and non funded agencies  to ensure the  objectives of the Scheme are clear and understood
  • Develop expertise within the Peer Reviewer team to identify good practice and areas for development at both an organisational and individual adviser level.
  • Utilise the Peer Review Scheme as an organisational and personal development opportunity for debt advisers who are planning to move into senior management, training or continuous improvement
  • Create advocates/champions for improving the quality of debt advice delivery from the Peer Reviewer team for when they return to their organisation
  • Analyse the research base of knowledge from the peer reviews to identify common challenges and learning/solutions which can be shared with all providers of debt advice
  • Remuneration of an individual’s time whilst undertaking peer review activity will be paid directly to their employer organisation, rather than the individual themselves.
  • Active participation and peer review assessment delivery will be required to commence from September 2016.

Our approach will be to compensate the organisation for the loss of their debt adviser and allow you to back-fill their position. Remuneration for the Peer Review role will therefore be made directly to you as the employer of the appointed reviewer.  Remuneration will include all activities undertaken whilst active in the role as a Peer Reviewer, including any CPD and training activities.

Remuneration will be paid at a rate of £200 plus VAT for peer review assessment activities, and £100 plus VAT for all training and CPD related activities.

The closing date for applications is midday 1st July 2016.
