2 skilled Trustees needed to join the Board of Uttlesford Citizens' Advice Bureau

Could you help run the CAB?

Do you believe in social justice & want to help change things for the better?

 Uttlesford Citizens' Advice is a charity created to serve the local community. They help around 3,000 clients each year with problems relating to benefit entitlements, debt and budgeting, housing, relationships, employment rights and health and care needs. 

They aim to work with people to try and fix the underlying cause of their problems, give them confidence to take action and to help them become more knowledgeable about their rights.  Problems don’t happen in isolation and solving them can stop situations from escalating.  Our advice helps to prevent homelessness and housing evictions, reduce use of NHS services and keep people in work – as a result we save society money.

Could you help run our charity?

They need to recruit two skilled trustees to join our board. Experience of using, working in or volunteering for Citizens' Advice is not essential, just a willingness to give time and commitment to the role. They are looking for people with a wide variety of skills and a diversity of experiences but some knowledge of marketing / communications or human resources would be preferred.  The post of trustee is unpaid but will provide you with new challenges, the opportunity to give something back and great satisfaction!

The Board of Trustees hold 6 evening meetings and 2 daytime planning meetings each year.  All reasonable expenses are reimbursed.

They are particularly keen to achieve a more diverse board of trustees and welcome applications from all sections of the community.
