MoneyForce Needs You!

Are you a MoneyForce fan that likes to help others get MoneyFit?

Would you like to play a part in shaping the future direction of MoneyForce?

Think you can help us with the design of new digital tools and apps?

Or even if you’re not a fan, but think you know what’s missing from MoneyForce, we
want to hear from you!

We’re aiming to set up a small group of 6-8 MoneyForce ‘Super users’ to meet up
twice a year to discuss MoneyForce and for you to feed back to us the views of your
friends and colleagues.

What we want
The MoneyForce Users Forum will play an important part in the future content,
design and tools of the website, helping us make it better and more useful for you
and your needs.

The group will represent all four services, and include spouses/family members and
veterans as well as active service personnel. We would like representatives of
different ranks (up to junior officers) to ensure that everyone’s views are

What you get
All UK travel expenses will be paid and refreshments provided at the meetings. If
you’re stationed abroad you can Skype in to meetings (timings permitting!).
We would expect the first Users Forum to meet up in early 2017.
In addition to the twice-yearly group meetings, there may be opportunities to usertest
new tools and features before they go live.

How to take part
If you would like to be part of this exciting new step in the life of MoneyForce, please
email us at moneyforce@britishlegion.org.uk and tell us a little bit about yourself
and why you’d like to join the group.

Look forward to hearing from you!
