Citizens Advice Staffordshire South West is a medium sized charity providing information, advice and support across Stafford Borough & Cannock Chase.
We’re looking for an ambitious and forward-thinking trustee to help us deliver on our dual mission in the future: giving the advice people need to solve the problems they face and advocating to address their underlying causes.
What will you be doing?
Our trustees play a vital role in making sure that Citizens Advice Staffordshire South West (CASSW) achieves its core purpose. They oversee the overall management and administration of the charity. They also ensure that CASSW has a clear strategy and that our work and goals are in line with our vision. Just as importantly, they support and challenge the executive team to enable CASSW to grow and thrive, and through this, achieve our mission. Board members have a collective responsibility. This means that trustees always act as a group and not as individuals.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for people willing to bring energy, enthusiasm and commitment to the role, and who will broaden the diversity of thinking on our board. You do not need previous governance experience – we will provide a comprehensive induction, training and online learning. We are particularly, but not exclusively, interested in hearing from people with the following skills/experience:
- Human resources/Employment
- Business development/Strategy
- Income generation
What difference will you make?
No one else sees so many people with so many different kinds of problems, and that gives us a unique insight into the challenges people are facing today. That’s why we’re here: to give people the knowledge and the confidence they need to find their way forward - whoever they are, and whatever their problem. We share knowledge and best practice so people can expect the same quality of support across our service. We also work to fix the underlying causes of people’s problems.
The board meet 4 times a year. For further details, please see the candidate pack.
