Citizens Advice was founded in 1939. Since then, we've given free, independent, confidential and impartial advice, information and support to anyone who needs it. This is an extremely interesting time for the charity, and a good time to be joining the Board. We have made great progress with our plans to help more people, and have strengthened our influence in order to make things fairer. Building on our successes over these past 77 years we continue to search out better ways of doing things.
Our One Service Strategy is helping us get a deeper understanding of our clients' current and future needs, the changing context our service will be working in, and the practical things we must do to make our advice brilliant and our campaigning influential. We are now looking for a high-calibre trustee to join our Board at this exciting time.
You will have a proven record of significant achievement in your own field, ideally within a substantial or complex organisation, and be used to operating at a strategic level, confronting challenges and driving through initiatives. The best candidates must be able to demonstrate a broad range of influencing and enabling skills, display keen judgement, and give evidence of facilitating strategic transformation. You will bring a practical understanding of quality customer service.
Of particular interest for this round of recruitment would be experience in the following areas:
- Commercial or business development experience
- Experience of living or working in Wales
We value diversity, promote equality and challenge discrimination. We want to increase the diversity of our leadership and particularly welcome applications from women, disabled and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people, as they are currently under represented on the Board.
You can contact our employment agency advisers Green Park on CA@green-park.co.uk or 020 7399 3993 and ask for Jaimi Keemer.
The closing date for applications is noon on Thursday 12 October 2017.
