Angus Citizens Advice Bureau (SCIO) was formed in 1985 to provide a holistic advice service to the residents of Angus. As a member of the Scottish Association of Citizens Advice Bureaux network, Angus CAB aims to ensure that individuals do not suffer through a lack of knowledge of their rights and responsibilities or through an inability to express their needs effectively.

Since its establishment, Angus CAB now has offices in Arbroath, Forfar and Montrose which are supported by over 50 volunteers and 15 members of staff. The Bureau supports individuals with a number of enquires each year whilst project staff provide specialist support on topics including social security, debt, utilities, NHS concerns & complaints and support for the armed forces and their families.

Following our current Chair coming to the end of his tenure, we are seeking to appoint a new Chair as well as additional Trustees. We are excited to offer the opportunity to join our Board of Trustees to up to 3 individuals to help guide our organisation into what we see as a new and exciting phase. We are looking to recruit enthusiastic and dynamic individuals with experience of operations, fundraising, volunteer support, HR, marketing, communications and/or finance to our Board of Trustees.

Applicants will have the experience and skills to ensure that the charity continues to develop and provide high-quality long-term services. As a Trustee, you will be required to contribute to the governance of the organisation including attendance at regular board meetings (currently 4 times per year) and the AGM. Please note that we are currently conducting virtual Board meetings.

For the role of Chair, you will have additional responsibilities which will include chairing Board meetings, representing the Bureau at events (including Citizens Advice Scotland AGM) and working closely with the Chief Officer on strategical issues.

These roles are not accompanied by any financial renumeration, although expenses for travel may be claimed in line with our expenses policy.
