Citizens Advice Waltham Forest is recruiting Trustees for our Board

Citizens Advice Waltham Forest has served the local community for over 40 years, providing independent advice, information and advocacy on a wide range of subjects.   We now have a number of vacancies on our Board which we are seeking to fill with people local to Waltham Forest who are passionate about supporting the people and communities of our borough.

About Citizens Advice Waltham Forest

During the past three years we have made our service even more accessible to local people by increasing our outreach to 14 different locations across the borough and offering digital as well as face-to-face advice.

Since March 2020, we have been responding to the pandemic by working even more closely with the council and other borough partners to ensure that together we continue to support our community.

We are now looking forward to ensuring our strategy continues to meet the needs of our Waltham Forest communities in the challenging months and years ahead.

 

About our Board of Trustees

We are looking for local people who have an understanding of the Waltham Forest area, can exercise independent judgement, have strong communication skills and are willing to give their time and commitment to being a trustee. We would particularly welcome applications from those who can bring financial skills, people management/ HR experience, and from those who have used our services.  The Board currently meets a minimum of four times a year for full Board meetings. In addition, trustees are actively encouraged to join one of our subcommittees, according to their particular area of expertise or experience.

Our volunteers come from a range of backgrounds and we particularly welcome applications from disabled people, people with physical or mental health conditions, LGBT+ and non-binary people, and people from Black Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities.  We would also encourage young people to apply.  If you are interested in becoming a trustee and would like to discuss flexibility around location, time, ‘what you will do’ and how we can support you please contact us. 

See the Trustee role description below. To express interest, please send a copy of your CV with a covering letter explaining your reasons for applying to [email protected] The closing date for applications is 5pm on Friday 2nd July 2021.
