At Citizens Advice Solihull Borough we’re looking for volunteers to help lead our charity. We’re looking for people who can consider the big picture and have experience in finance or running a small business.
Citizens Advice Solihull Borough is a small charity providing information and advice helping people resolve their problems, including benefits, debt, employment and housing. We provide free and independent advice to help people solve the difficulties they face, and improve the policies and practices that affect people’s lives. We helped 3234 people with 12467 issues last year.
Citizens Advice Solihull Borough is a member of the national Citizens Advice charity but as an independent charity, we’re responsible for running our own affairs within agreed standards. We have a small paid staff team and 40 volunteers delivering services across 28 sites.
You’ll need to:
- be available to attend a monthly evening meeting
- have a willingness to work as a team
- actively participate in discussions that relate to the running of the organisation
- act in the interests of Citizens Advice Solihull Borough, of its team and local people.
We welcome applications from all sections of the community to help us achieve a diverse trustee board that reflects our clients and communities.
You do not need experience of working or volunteering with Citizens Advice service. We are particularly looking for people with knowledge of charity and company law, finance and fundraising.
The post of trustee is voluntary. The role provides you a great deal of experience, satisfaction, the opportunity to develop your skills, utilise your expertise and knowledge.
For more information or an informal discussion about this trustee role please contact Kerry Turner, Chief Executive Officer by email firstname.lastname@example.org
