What will you be doing?

As a Financial Education Facilitator for 16-25 year olds, you'll be instrumental in guiding young adults towards financial empowerment and stability. Your main role is to provide personalised financial mentorship within this age group, helping them navigate various financial challenges and make informed decisions about their money. Your responsibilities include:

Personalized Financial Mentorship: Working closely with students and young adults to understand their unique financial situations, goals, and challenges. Through individual sessions, you'll offer tailored guidance and support, empowering them to take control of their finances.

Goal Setting and Strategy Development: Assisting young people in setting realistic and achievable financial goals, whether it's saving for a major purchase, paying off debt, or planning for the future. Using your expertise in financial planning, you'll collaborate with young people to develop practical strategies and action plans to reach these goals.

Financial Education and Coaching: Utilising your knowledge of budgeting, saving, investing, and debt management to educate young people on essential financial concepts and principles. Serving as a coach and mentor, you'll provide guidance on effective money management techniques and help develop healthy financial habits.

Empowerment and Support: Going beyond providing advice by empowering young minds to make confident and informed financial decisions. Offering ongoing support and encouragement, you'll help overcome obstacles and stay motivated on their financial journey.

Impact and Contribution: By helping young adults build strong financial foundations, you'll make a meaningful impact on their lives and futures. Your role extends beyond financial guidance to fostering financial literacy, resilience, and independence among the next generation.

What are we looking for?

Financial Expertise: A strong understanding of financial principles, including budgeting, saving, investing, and debt management, is essential. Experience in financial planning, advising, or coaching is highly desirable.

Communication Skills: Effective communication skills, both verbal and written, are crucial for conveying complex financial concepts in a clear and understandable manner. The ability to actively listen and empathise with clients is also important.

Empathy and Patience: Empathy towards clients' financial challenges and the patience to guide them through their journey towards financial empowerment are key qualities for a successful Money Mentor.

Analytical Thinking: The ability to analyse clients' financial situations, identify areas for improvement, and develop practical strategies and solutions tailored to their individual needs is essential.

Problem-Solving Skills: Strong problem-solving skills are necessary for addressing clients' financial challenges and finding creative solutions to help them overcome obstacles.

Adaptability: The financial landscape is constantly evolving, so a Money Mentor should be adaptable and open to learning new concepts and strategies to stay up-to-date with industry trends and best practices.

Interpersonal Skills: Building rapport and trust with young clients is essential for effective mentorship. The ability to establish positive relationships, inspire confidence, and maintain professionalism is crucial.

Organizational Skills: Managing multiple clients and their financial plans requires strong organisational skills to prioritize tasks, meet deadlines, and maintain accurate records.

Ethical Conduct: Upholding high ethical standards and maintaining confidentiality are paramount in financial mentorship. A strong commitment to integrity and professionalism is expected.

Passion for Helping Others: A genuine passion for empowering individuals to achieve financial success and a commitment to making a positive difference in clients' lives are fundamental qualities for a Money Mentor.
