Do you feel passionately about social justice?
Could you help shape the future of Citizens Advice Camden?
Citizens Advice Camden provides independent advice services to people who live, work or study in Camden. We are governed and managed locally but with the benefit of being part of the influential national organisation, Citizens Advice. In 2018-19 we dealt with over 11,000 clients a year and helped with over 36,000 issues. In 2019-20 we expect to have an annual turnover of £1.1 million. We have 32 paid staff who support 120 volunteers.
We are looking for a number of new Trustees, including a Treasurer, to be responsible for the overall direction, vision and strategy of Citizens Advice Camden. We are seeking people who can provide governance, leadership and enthusiasm to lead Citizens Advice Camden into the future.
We are looking to appoint people who have the capacity to make a significant contribution; whether in full-time employment, on a break from employment, working part-time or retired. We are keen to recruit Camden residents.
We seek candidates who can bring innovative ideas, enthusiasm for our values, and excellent judgment to help determine our objectives. You will be prepared to spend time working with us attending at least four evening Board meetings a year and also participating in one of two Standing Committees that meet each quarter.
This is a voluntary, unpaid appointment, although reasonable travel expenses will be paid.
