Job Information

We are delighted to be working with Citizens Advice Cornwall who are looking to appoint a new Chair of the Trustee Board.  The charity provides advice across the County to nearly 20,000 people each year who face issues with debt and benefits.  This important service is delivered through 43 dedicated staff and 158 trained volunteers.  We are looking for someone who has a strong social conscience and understanding of the importance of the role the Citizens Advice Cornwall plays in the lives of its clients and the contribution it makes to our communities.

The ideal person will demonstrate an understanding of the strategic aspect of the role of a Trustee and will have the ability to lead the Board and develop the governance of the charity in a positive way.  It is important to understand the charitable ethos of the organisation and how their funding works together with the importance and value of diversity. Previous experience of working with local authorities would be really helpful.

The Board meets quarterly during the day in Camborne, but a new Chair might recommend a different time and location.  It is expected that the Chair would also meet with the CEO on a monthly basis.

Please contact Jackie Dawkins (Director) at Shine Charity Recruitment if you would like to discuss this opportunity in more detail.
