A DEDICATED debt advisor has moved up the career ladder to take on a management role.
Lynemouth Grandad Brian Wight, 58, has been appointed Contracts Delivery Manager at DAWN Advice.
Mr Wight is already a familiar face to many of the social enterprise’s clients, having joined as a debt and housing case worker in 2005.
Now he will oversee services and ensure the efficient delivery of contracts so that people receive the most appropriate support as quickly as possible.
He said: “I’m delighted to be taking on the new challenges which my new position will bring.
“During the time I have been at DAWN Advice it has grown considerably to an 80-plus team, which handles thousands of calls annually, but it has managed to maintain its friendly and welcoming atmosphere, which is extremely important when building relationships with our clients.”
DAWN Chief Executive Liz Chadwick is delighted to see Mr Wight in his new post.
She said: “As a committed and long-serving employee Brian was an excellent candidate to help support the organisation as we continue to move forward in offering high quality and impartial advice to people living throughout the region and beyond.”
The service offers free, confidential and independent advice on issues such as housing, debt, employment, benefits and family law.
