Do you want to help a local charity support our local community through the cost of living crisis and some of the most challenging and difficult times in living memory? We are looking for three new Trustee Board Members to join us. We’re looking for individuals who share our passion and values, who will support us to deliver our mission to empower and support citizens throughout Perth and Kinross in areas such as debt, benefits, employment, consumer rights, and to create a more equal and inclusive society.
The Board’s role is to provide overall governance for the Bureau, to set strategic direction, and to ensure that as an organisation we are providing the services required to support the community. We are looking for individuals who want to share their knowledge and experience, to work collaboratively with other trustees and our CEO to ensure Perth Citizens Advice Bureau continues to thrive in responding to the needs of our community.
If you don’t think you meet the ‘traditional’ profile of a charity trustee which may have put you off applying in the past then we want to hear from you! We want our board to reflect the communities we serve and would welcome applications from diverse backgrounds.
We currently lack the following skills on our trustee team so if you have current experience or knowledge in these areas then we’d also love to hear from you: Communication or Marketing, HR and Fundraising and Income Generation.
Our trustees are asked to attend a board meeting once every two months and to join at least one sub-committee; Finance, Governance and People. The time commitment is between four and six hours a month including meeting preparation.
Please complete our application form. If you have any difficulties you can get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like an informal chat to discuss the role please contact our CEO email@example.com
Once we have received your application form you will be invited to an interview with David Abercrombie, our Chair, and Jane Adams, our CEO.
Closing date for applications is 31st August 2022
