Trustee Board Members
As a member of the national Citizens Advice network, each local Citizens Advice charity is independent and led by its own Board of Trustees.
Trustees are responsible for the governance and strategic management as well as acting as ambassadors for the organisation.
The Trustees acting individually and collectively have an overall stewardship responsibility for the well-being of Citizens Advice Broxbourne, providing strategic direction, ensuring that it works effectively towards its vision and mission, harnessing its resources to maximum effect and upholding its core ethos and values and fulfilling a duty of care, in accordance with its governing documents, relevant legislation and regulatory requirements.
Our small but active Board of Trustees is looking to expand. We are particularly (but not exclusively) keen to hear from you if you have experience, expertise or an interest in PR & Profile, Research & Campaigns, Legal and Compliance, Human Resources, or Governance.
Prospective candidates will need to:
- Have time to dedicate to this role (up to 3 days per month);
- Have empathy with the charitable objectives of the organisation;
- Have the ability, commitment and drive to take the organisation forward.
The Board meets in the evening around 6-8 times per year, and trustees are expected to be able to spend some time each year during the working day with staff and volunteers. Trustees will also be invited to take the lead on a particular project or theme. The position is voluntary (unsalaried) with some reasonable expenses reimbursed.
