Job Description

Volunteer Trustees are responsible for setting the overall strategic direction and development of the charity, for governance and financial controls, and for establishing an effective fundraising strategy.

We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds who can bring different skills, experience and perspectives to strengthen our Board. In particular, we are looking for a Finance Trustee to oversee the financial management of our Charity.

We meet as a Board eight times per year (including the AGM) at different locations – so some travel is involved. Trustees also lead projects and do work outside of Board meetings.

Citizens Advice service is committed to valuing diversity and promoting equality.  We encourage and welcome applications from suitably qualified candidates from all backgrounds regardless of age, disability, gender and sexual orientation.

We are looking for Trustees from across all four (Torridge, North, Mid and West Devon) of our districts.

For the Finance Trustee role you will need to possess a recognised accountancy qualification such as ACA, ACCA, CIMA, CIPFA and have several years commercial, in-practice or similar experience.  Experience of the third sector is desirable but not essential.
