We have a vacancy for a new volunteer to support the trustee board as Clerk to Trustees.

Knowledge/experience of Citizens Advice is not essential.

The Board normally meets seven times a year at 6.30pm in Addlestone. There are also strategy and training events and a day-time AGM that require you to be available for up to 4 days per year in working hours.
