Trustee Vacancies (Voluntary)
We are looking for two Trustee Board Members
Ever thought about becoming a trustee? This is a great opportunity to gain new skills and perspectives; and use your experience to make a lasting difference to a key local charity.
Citizens Advice Rushmoor’s Trustee Board has forward looking members, who bring a fantastic range of skills and experience. We are proud that our leadership has been assessed as one of the most effective within our national network.
As a charity with a turnover of over £600,000, we value strong local partnerships and support innovative practices. Together, we are champions of a team that changes people’s lives and helps to make Rushmoor a better place.
New members benefit from the full range of training and infrastructure you would expect from a national charity. Our exceptional brand recognition, and reputation for excellence, is combined with a welcoming and supportive environment. We look forward to hearing from you!
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.
A salaried staff member takes responsibility for day-to-day financial management, so no direct bookkeeping work is required. On average the time commitment works out at around 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 28 people, with over 100 volunteers also involved in delivering services. This People role supports the Chief Officer, bringing a strategic view to the whole board on this key area of the charity’s work. Participation in selection processes where appropriate, is also part of the role.
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. Involving 2 evening meetings per quarter, an occasional daytime commitment is needed for selection panels or other relevant work.
For an informal discussion on either of the above roles call Alex Hughes, our Chief Officer, on 01252 894287, or email firstname.lastname@example.org with brief details and your cv.
