New Trustee Vacancies (Voluntary)
We are currently recruiting for two new Trustees
Joining Citizens Advice Rushmoor’s Trustee Board offers a great way of using existing experience and/ or developing new skills – at the same time as contributing to an important local charity. Our Trustee Board is highly experienced and forward looking, with a turnover of over £600,000. This results from strong local partnerships, innovative practices and service-wide commitment to meeting local community needs.
The Treasurer is a voluntary role, sharing responsibility with the whole Trustee Board for governance of the charity. Linking strategic and development objectives to financial management, the Treasurer works alongside other qualified board members to ensure good governance – guiding and advising the board in relation to budgets, accounts and financial statements. A good understanding of accounting procedures, with the financial qualifications or experience to contribute effectively to the organisation, is required.
The role does not involve direct bookkeeping, as a salaried staff member takes responsibility for day-to-day financial management. The Treasurer commitment is circa 2 hours for 1 morning a month in the office; and 2 evening Trustee meetings once every 3 months.
Lead Trustee – People
The Trustee Board formally employs 29 people and over 100 volunteers. This role brings a strategic view to the whole board on people issues, supporting the Chief Officer, and leading Trustee reviews and decision making on this key area of work for the charity. Participation in selection processes, including interview panels on occasion, is also part of the role. We are therefore looking for someone with a current or recent HR background.
There is a well-established management and supervision structure, supported by experienced staff, alongside policy models, guidance and support from the national Citizens Advice organisation. In addition to 2 evening meetings per quarter, an occasional daytime commitment is required for team based work.
