Citizens Advice Rural Cambs (CARC) is an independent local charity providing expert information and advice to over 10,000 people per annum.
They seek three trustees who can each be responsible for the strategic oversight for a particular area of work as follows:
Strategy and Planning.
Leading research on the issues that trouble their clients most and conducting campaigns to address those issues.
Developing innovative approaches that will improve the service to their clients, particularly those in more remote areas.
Fundraising and drafting bids for funds.

There are 3 main challenges for the organisation:

Responding pro-actively to the changing expectations and needs for advice with high standards of service.
Continuing to attract funding for their work, particularly non-governmental funding, in an increasingly challenging environment.

They seek trustees who will play a key part in all aspects of the company Board, contributing new ideas, communicating new research and working in partnership with others. They should have good general management abilities and the expertise to be able to perform one or more of the duties listed above.
Personal attributes will be:
Empathetic and Pragmatic.
Proactive ‘can-do’ attitude.
Before you apply:
