AdviceUK is the national charity supporting the UK’s largest network of independent advice centres. Our 700 member organisations help more than two million people every year with problems relating to debt; housing; employment; immigration & asylum; welfare benefits and consumer rights. As their association body since 1979, we support them with a range of services to help them be effective in helping others.
We are governed by a board of trustees some of whom are drawn from the membership while others bring particular knowledge, skills and experience. We are currently seeking to recruit a suitably qualified person to act as Hon. Treasurer. If you would like to apply your skills and experience in a national role supporting our members to help people resolve problems and overcome injustice we’re keen to hear from you.
We operate as a social business and, unusually in our sector, we generate a high proportion of our own income. We have a clear strategy for future independence and sustainability through enterprise. We therefore seek to appoint enterprising and independently-minded individuals to our board who will relish the challenge of helping a charity to succeed in an increasingly difficult environment.
Position: Hon. Treasurer and Trustee / Director.
Salary: Voluntary - unpaid. Reasonable travel and other expenses reimbursed.
Commitment: Equivalent to approx. 1 day per month - initial term of 3 years.
