Become a Trustee

Become a Trustee

As a registered charity, by law, our organisation has to have its own board of trustees who are responsible for leading the organisation and deciding how it is run.

Trustees are volunteers with the skills, knowledge and experience to help guide and govern us. As a trustee you will work with the Chief Executive and other staff to shape our strategy and give direction.

What can you offer us?

  • Contribute your skills towards setting, reviewing and monitoring our vision and strategic priorities

  • Attend regular meetings and make a valuable contribution. On average local Citizens Advice trustees spend around 8.5 hours every month undertaking trustee business

  • Provide additional support where needed. This might be getting involved in additional governance projects, such as supporting fundraising, developing strategy or overseeing HR procedures

What can we offer you?

  • The opportunity to help shape our profile as a key local charity, knowing you are making a difference
  • The opportunity to gain valuable experience and skills to add to your CV and to network across the wider Third Sector

  • The opportunity to develop your understanding of Citizens Advice and see the positive impact we have

  • The opportunity to meet and work with our dedicated Trustee, staff and volunteer team

Within a board, some trustees will have a specific role, such as being the Chair, Treasurer or Secretary. These positions have defined responsibilities, such as chairing and facilitating meetings (Chair), overseeing the budget (Treasurer) and taking and circulating minutes (Secretary).
