What will you be doing?

We are an independent charity and part of the Citizens Advice network across England and Wales. People come to us with all sorts of issues: money, benefit, housing or employment problems. We help people who may be facing a crisis, or just considering their options. As we are an independent charity, we need a Trustee board, which works in a similar way to a board of Directors. Our Trustees work collectively to make key decisions, set the strategy, and keep us on track with our mission. They help ensure local offices are fulfilling their purpose of helping people and have all the relevant procedures in place. This means they take on a huge responsibility for the overall health and efficiency of our organisation.

What are we looking for?

No formal qualifications are required and we welcome trustees from a wide range of backgrounds. We are particularly interested in strengthening our skills in finance, fundraising and/development, people and culture and property management. Experience in the health and social care sector, local government and local corporate organisations would also be helpful.

What difference will you make?

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Trustee at Norfolk Citizens Advice – a local charity for the whole community. You will be joining us at a time when there is increased demand for our services, as the economic challenges impact on people’s financial circumstances and their general well-being. Our immediate imperative is to continue to maintain excellence in service delivery. Citizens Advice is a service that prizes quality very highly, and earlier this year we secured the highest levels of accreditation for our advice service that can be attained. We have long been a bold organisation that has the confidence to forge new paths and new relationships in pursuit of our commitments and stated objectives. It is vital that our trustees share our passion for supporting our communities, valuing diversity, promoting equality and challenging discrimination wherever we see it.
