Board Apprentice Trustee
Charity Trustee Board Apprentice
(part time voluntary role)
Can you help us change lives?
We are looking for volunteers to join our board of trustees as a trainee board apprentice.
This is a unique development opportunity for anyone wishing to learn more and contribute to the charitable sector. We seek enthusiastic individuals who can spare a few hours a month, who may lack board/executive level experience and knowledge but have an enthusiasm and commitment to learn on the job.
Our aim is for a diverse board who represent our population and all those that use our services. No specific skills or experience required, but ideally applicants will live, study or work in or nearby the areas we service. Our board comes from many different backgrounds and what they all share is a passion for representing the local community. You may also have experienced disadvantage and/or discrimination and would like to contribute to an organisation working to make a difference.
You will be expected to attend four board meetings per year held quarterly, plus a minimum of four sub-committee meetings per year. A bespoke training and development plan will be agreed with the successful candidate. The voluntary position will be for a fixed term of one year, with potential for an extension. At the end of the programme, you should have a good understanding of governance.
Who we are.
Citizens Advice is a network of 300 local independent charities, and Derbyshire Districts (covering residents of Amber Valley, Derbyshire Dales, Erewash and High Peak) is a well funded and high performing member with over 150 staff and volunteers.
Last year our advice helped people in crisis stay in work, prevented families being evicted from their homes, helped thousands of people tackle crippling debt and enabled people to access the welfare rights they are entitled to.
We would love to hear from you.
We are keen to welcome people from all backgrounds with a broad range of experience as we aspire to have a diverse board which reflects our clients and communities.
