Hours per month
10 to 20 hours
Long Term

We are pleased to invite expressions of interest in a vacancy that we have on our Board.

Money Advice Plus is a major charity based in Brighton/ Hove and Eastbourne. We help people to manage their money effectively through expert benefit, debt and budgeting advice, and practical money-handling support. Our non-judgemental and flexible approach is tailored to each individual, and we work with some of the most vulnerable people in the community.

The Board of Trustees are looking to bring into their team an experienced accountant or someone with equivalent financial management experience. We hope that this person will bring a high level of enthusiasm and commitment, and be involved in all aspects of the work of the Board. We already have an excellent Treasurer, but in time the successful applicant may seek to take on this crucial Board role.

We have been operating in one form or another since 1897. Like all charities, MAP faces huge challenges driven by changes in social policy and funding for this sector. MAP has an outstanding staff team, and the new Board member will have a crucial role in ensuring that they have the support and representation that they deserve.

For the successful candidate, it is a great opportunity to gain experience of strategy and governance, and to make a significant difference to our community. As always, we will welcome the opportunity to increase the skill set and diversity of the Board.

More information about the role of the Board and its members is available on our website.
