John Scott - Welfare Benefits and Energy Adviser

John ScottJohn joined Melville in October 2020, taking over from long-serving (and now retired) benefits adviser Jacquie Mather. As well as help with benefits, John also provides Melville tenants with advice on their energy bills.

With more than 20 years experience in the field of housing advice and support, John joins from Home Group where he worked as a Financial Inclusion Officer and before that with West Lothian Council's Advice Shop.

In his spare time John enjoys cinema, football and live music and is looking forward to making up for lost time (and gigs) in 2021.

"I’m really looking forward to using my previous experience to help Melville tenants in what are very tough and testing times. Even once we see the back of COVID, we’re all going to be feeling the effects for quite some time yet. Once things do start to get back to normal I’m really looking forward to getting to know everyone properly."
