Borrowers could cash in on loan work

Need cash to pay off your student loan? Then why not work for the Student Loans Company chasing up other borrowers who are in arrears?

The SLC is seeking applications by August 16 for part-time collection agents working a 16-hour week in its central Glasgow headquarters.
