Who we are

We help people resolve their legal, money and other problems by providing advice and information about their rights and responsibilities. We also work to influence local government and other decision-makers to improve policies and practices which affect local communities. Citizens Advice Westminster collaborates with the broader Citizens Advice service to advocate for positive changes in laws and services at both local and national levels, utilizing evidence from our clients’ problems.

The role

​The Chair holds the Board and Executive Team to account for Citizens Advice Westminster’s vision and mission, providing leadership to the Board and ensuring effective governance of the charity. The Chair is pivotal in creating the conditions for overall board and individual trustee effectiveness.

We’re seeking someone with integrity, strategic vision, independent judgment, creativity, understanding of legal duties, a strong commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion, and ability to foster supportive relationships with the Executive team and Board.

“This role is an incredible opportunity to make an impact in Westminster at a time when more and more people need support to navigate the challenges of economic recession and housing shortage. If you are passionate about the role of impartial advice and have the skills to help us shape the future direction of the bureau, we are looking forward to hearing from you!” Ksenia, current Chair

This is an exciting opportunity to get involved in an engaging, decision-making role in a charity that is now at the heart of the most deprived neighbourhoods in the borough it serves.
