Join our Board of Trustees

Do you have current or recent experience in human resources or IT?

As a trustee of Uttlesford Citizens Advice you could use your experience, together with your knowledge of the local area, to make a positive impact by ensuring our charity is sustainable and continues to meet the needs of the community. 

Trustees are volunteers who are expected to use their skills, knowledge, and experience to help guide and govern our local charity. They work with our Chief Executive and other staff to shape strategy and give direction.

This includes making sure that we are:

  • Doing what our charity was set-up to do, such as offering high quality advice services to the local community.
  • Complying with the law, including upkeep of premises, insurance, recruitment and equipment.
  • Securing money to meet current and new demands, and that all funds are used responsibly.
  • Recognised and valued by local organisations, funders and people, who are aware of the vital service that we provide.

Attendance at regular meetings is expected by all trustees. Sometimes trustees will get involved in additional governance projects, such as supporting fundraising, developing strategy or overseeing HR procedures.

Although you don’t generally need specific qualifications or skills to be a trustee, we are currently looking for a board member with current or recent experience in Human Resources or IT (ideally cloud based).  We welcome people of all ages, backgrounds and experience who are passionate about advice services and can bring innovative ideas, unique perspectives and good judgement. We are particularly keen to increase diversity on our board.

You must also:

  • demonstrate awareness of some of the issues that affect our local area
  • understand and accept the responsibilities and liabilities as trustees
  • be non-judgmental and respect views, values and cultures that are different to your own
  • have good listening, verbal and written communication skills
  • be able to exercise good independent judgement
  • have good numeracy skills to understand accounts with the support of the treasurer
  • be willing to learn about and follow the Citizens Advice aims, principles and policies, including confidentiality and data protection
  • be willing to undertake training in your role

Evening meetings are usually held in Saffron Walden, 8 times a year. For more information about the requirements of the role, click here, or visit the Citizens Advice website .
