Do you feel passionately about advice delivery?
Could you shape future strategy and help us to achieve our mission?
Citizens Advice Camden provides a wide range of advice services to the people who live, work or study in Camden. In addition to our offices in Kentish Town and Albany we are providing services through various venues including GP surgeries, Great Ormond Street Hospital and the Royal Free Hospital.
We are recruiting a Chair for our trustee board. We are seeking someone with governance skills who can provide leadership and enthusiasm to lead Citizens Advice Camden into the future. You will ultimately be responsible for the overall direction, vision and strategy of Citizens Advice Camden. We are looking for candidates who can bring innovative ideas, enthusiasm for our values, and excellent judgment to help determine our objectives. You will be prepared to assist our organisation in taking on any future challenges and play a key role in our success.
We are looking to appoint a Chair who shares our values and is committed to providing free information and advice services to Camden residents. In particular we would also like to hear from individuals who have charity governance experience/skills and a passion for advice services and possibly experience of income generation and business development.
This role is voluntary and unpaid but reasonable expenses will be reimbursed. Trustees will be expected to attend about 6 meetings and one away day each year and the overall time commitment is around one day a month.
If you have the required skills and enthusiasm we would love to hear from you. For an informal conversation about the role contact the CEO Margie.email@example.com .
