Chair of Trustees (Voluntary Trustee) – Vacancy
Many people’s lives are overshadowed by problems such as debt, housing, employment worries and family difficulties. Our services make a real difference. Central and South Sussex Citizens Advice is looking to appoint a new Chair of Trustees to help lead our Board to shape the organisation for the future.
Central and South Sussex Citizens Advice (CASSCA) is a registered charity and part of the national Citizens Advice Network. We operate with the twin aims of the Citizens Advice service; providing advice people need for the problems they face and working to improve the policies and practices that affect people’s lives. The service we provide is free, independent, confidential and impartial advice to everyone on their rights and responsibilities. We value diversity, promote equality and challenge discrimination.
CASSCA delivers a range of advice services, funded by local and national contracts. It works in partnership with a range of stakeholders (including the local authority, Macmillan, Shelter and various Housing Associations)
To fill this high profile role you will have Board level leadership experience in a voluntary sector, public sector or business environment. You will also possess sound financial skills, a passion for improving services to the public and a genuine commitment to engaging and representing all sections of the community.
We are always keen to hear from potential Trustees – if you do not wish to apply for the Chair but may be interested in a more general role on our Board, please do contact us to discuss.
