• Citizens Advice Eastbourne - Trainee Chair

        • Citizens Advice Eastbourne is looking to recruit someone willing to be trained and supported to take over as Chair of the Board of Trustees from October 2023.

          With so many local people struggling to cope with the rising cost of living at the moment, Citizens Advice Eastbourne is playing a vital role supporting people to  access the benefits and support they are entitled to. We are now offering an opportunity for someone who wants to use their skills to make a real difference to their local community to be trained to take over as Chair of our Board of Trustees from October 2023 when our current Chair steps down. 

          We are a small organisation run by a dedicated and experienced Board of Trustees with a great team of staff and fantastic volunteers giving advice and support to people in desperate need.

          If you are looking for a way to use your leadership skills and share our values, we would love to hear from you. You do not have to have had any previous experience of working or volunteering with Citizens Advice but you will need some experience of
          serving as a Director, committee member or Trustee.

          We are offering up to a year’s handover period, during which time you will be
          provided with plenty of training and mentored by the current Chair. In addition, as
          members of Citizens Advice, we can access a wide range of training opportunities,
          guidance and information to support the role.
