Citizens Advice Westminster’s Board has 11 Trustees with a broad range of skills, experiences and backgrounds.  We are now looking for a trustee with HR experience to provide strategic direction; and help both the Chief Executive Officer and the Board ensure best HR practice.

Duties of a Trustee and Person Specification

Minimum time commitments

We would expect trustees to committee to at least five days each year for board meetings, with additional time for reading papers and other communication.  Other meetings and events, for example the Finance and General Purposes Committee meetings or development days, will increase this commitment.

We hold Board meetings at least four times a year (plus the Annual General Meeting) to discuss and make decisions concerning the business of the organisation.   All board and committee meetings are currently held virtually due the social distancing measures introduced by the government to stop the spread of covid-19.

Ordinarily, the board meetings and Annual General Meeting are held at a hired venue in central London after office hours (6pm).  The committee meetings are held within our Paddington site during office hours.  All development days are held at hired spaces and are allotted to strategic planning.

Trustees are expected to attend 90% of meetings.

All Trustees will receive a thorough in-depth induction upon appointment, followed by regular skills audits and appraisals.

This is a voluntary role and trustees receive no renumeration.  Trustees are entitled to claim expenses in line with Citizens Advice Westminster’s expense policy for attendance at board and committee meetings, as well as other events necessary for the fulfilment of the trustee’s duties.

If you have any questions you would like to discuss further, please contact our Company Secretary, Sital Gohil:
