Interested in running Citizens Advice Eastleigh?
At Citizens Advice Eastleigh, we are looking for a volunteer to help lead our
charity, as part of our Board of Trustees. We are looking for people who can
consider the big picture and who have good independent judgement and
useful knowledge and skills.
You might run a small business or have useful knowledge and skills gained from your work
or personal life that you would like to share.
Citizens Advice Eastleigh is a small charity that provides information and advice to help
people resolve their problems, including benefits, debt, employment, and housing. We
provide free and independent advice to help people solve the difficulties they face, and
improve the policies and practices that affect peoples’ lives. We offer specialist debt and
welfare benefit advice, and ‘Pension Wise’ services. We help over 3,500 people with over
8,000 problems every year.
Citizens Advice Eastleigh is a member of the national Citizens Advice charity. This means we
have access to the services, resources and support provided by national Citizens Advice but
as an independent charity, we are responsible for running our own affairs within agreed
standards. We have 12 staff and 36 volunteers, a budget of approx. £260,000 and have one
main office in the town centre and three outreach locations.
You will need to:
We welcome applications from all sections of the community to help us achieve a diverse
trustee board that reflects our clients and communities.
You do not need experience of working or volunteering with Citizens Advice. We are looking
for people with a wide variety of skills and a diversity of background and experiences.
The post of trustee is a voluntary one but all reasonable expenses are reimbursed. The role
gives you a great deal of experience and satisfaction, the opportunity to develop your skills
and utilise your expertise and knowledge.
Please contact us for more information or an informal discussion about this trustee role;
