Chair of Trustees

Citizens Advice Tadley is looking for a new Chair of Trustees to lead our board and work with our staff and volunteers to consolidate our current service, identify opportunities to expand our activities and work on specific projects to further the strategic objectives of the organisation.

Citizens Advice Tadley is a relatively small rural office and that brings with it some unique challenges and benefits. Our rural location means that for some clients Citizens Advice becomes a vital link to other services, agencies and information.

The role of the chair is to provide leadership and direction to the board of Trustees to enable them to fulfil their responsibilities for the overall governance and strategic direction of the organisation. This includes being proactive in recruiting new trustees. The role also is responsible for providing support and supervision for the Advice Services Manager.

A full description of the role is available.
