Become a Trustee

Citizens Advice Knowsley are currently recruiting for Trustees to help govern our organisation.

Trustees are volunteers who are expected to use their skills, knowledge and experience to help guide and govern Citizens Advice Knowsley. They work with the Chief Executive and other staff to shape strategy and give direction.

This includes making sure that Citizens Advice Knowsley:

  • Doing what we were set-up to do, such as offering high quality advice services to the local community.
  • Complying with the law, including upkeep of premises, insurance, recruitment and equipment.
  • Securing money to meet current and new demands, and that all funds are used responsibly.
  • Ensuring that we are recognised and valued by local organisations, funders and people, who are aware of the vital service that Citizens Advice Knowsley provides.

Attendance at regular meetings is expected by all trustees. Sometimes trustees will get involved in additional governance projects, such as supporting fundraising, developing strategy or overseeing HR procedures.

Within a board, some trustees will have a specific role, such as being the Chair, Treasurer or Secretary. These positions have defined responsibilities, such as chairing and facilitating meetings (Chair), overseeing the budget (Treasurer) and taking and circulating minutes (Secretary).
