Citizens Advice Watford is looking for new members to join our Trustee Board
This is a dynamic role in which you will play an active part in shaping the future of the service. We are particularly interested in hearing from you if you have skills and experience in strategic management, law, HR, fundraising, PR or accountancy, and are willing to commit your time and energy to serving your local community. We welcome applications from all sections of the community to help us achieve a diverse trustee board that reflects our clients and community.
Our Trustee Board meets four times a year, and members attend an annual strategy day and the AGM. Members also serve on sub-committees and working groups, attend ad-hoc meetings as required, and are encouraged to attend monthly workers’ meetings of volunteers and staff. The role of trustee is a voluntary one but all reasonable expenses are reimbursed, and you will gain a great deal of experience and satisfaction, the opportunity to develop your skills and utilise your expertise and knowledge.

We are recruiting new volunteers to our advice service in Watford.
Covid-19 has brought unprecedented challenges to people in the Watford community and our advice is needed now more than ever. While the office is closed our volunteers are delivering advice by telephone from their homes, supported by funding from the National Lottery Community Fund. Support, supervision and training are all managed remotely using video conferencing and online resources.
This new environment presents opportunities for volunteers to work in a more flexible way, accessing online learning and delivering advice by a variety of channels including telephone, email and webchat. If you would like to play a part in supporting people in your local community, please read our booklet Information for Prospective Volunteers for details about the roles we have available and the requirements for each role.
Citizens Advice believes that the skills, experience and satisfaction that come from volunteering should be available to everyone. We welcome volunteers from all walks of life, backgrounds and communities to reflect the diversity of the community we serve. If you would to apply for a role, or you would like any further information, please complete our Enquiry Form and we will respond within three working days.
We look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you to our team of dedicated and committed volunteers here at Citizens Advice Watford.
