A spokesper­son for the bureau told the Ad­ver­tiser: “Train­ing to be an ad­viser will suit those who en­joy work­ing with peo­ple and are look­ing for a new chal­lenge.

“It may par­tic­u­larly suit those who may have re­cently re­tired or are think­ing of re­turn­ing to the job market.

“No ex­peri e n c e is nec­es­sary, but re­cruits must be over 18-years-old and pre­pared to com­mit seven hours per week, for a min­i­mum of six months, af­ter their com­ple­tion of the bureau’s train­ing pro­gramme.”
