Opportunity to join our Board …
Citizens Advice Rushmoor is looking to recruit to our Trustee Board. This is an exciting opportunity for committed individuals, following the planned retirement of two long term Board Members. We are keen to find energetic and enthusiastic people who can contribute to the continuing success of our charity, making a real difference to the lives of local people.
Citizens Advice Rushmoor is a forward looking and active organisation. We are particularly proud of our strong local partnerships, and our track record in providing key services to meet local community needs.
Trustees undertake a voluntary role, working together as a Board to share responsibility for the overall governance of the organisation. Specific duties include:
- Providing strategic leadership, and directing business planning
- Ensuring effective use of resources to meet client and community needs
- Taking formal responsibility as an employer
- Overseeing sound financial management and reporting
The Board is always looking for people with Financial, Legal, Marketing and HR skills but we are also keen to welcome applications from anyone with broader business and leadership experience who wants to make a real contribution to the local community.
We want our Board to reflect the diversity of the local area, so welcome interest from all members of our multi-cultural community. If you have a passion to develop our services and are motivated to work with us to improve our offerings and support to the people of Rushmoor you will be a perfect addition.
Becoming a Trustee will also give you opportunities to develop strategic skills and gain new perspectives, through being part of an organisation with an established reputation for leadership and recognised best practice. As a member of the national Citizens Advice service, we are well supported professionally through training, networking opportunities and an extensive knowledge base.
If you think this might be the right opportunity for you, do contact us:
- email Anne Fillis on firstname.lastname@example.org with your cv and details
- or for an informal discussion contact Alex Hughes, Chief Officer, on 01252 894287
More information about the organisation is available on our website, and a quick introduction to our current board is on http://citizensadvicerushmoor.org.uk/home/about-us/meet-our-trustees/
We value diversity, promote equality and welcome applications from all sections of the community.
