External Trustees

Are you an experienced professional, looking to utilise your skills experience and knowledge to help others? Do you want to undertake a Trustee role where your efforts will make a genuinely positive change to people’s lives?

Every year, over 300,000 people need and receive impartial advice on money, legal and rights issues from Citizens Advice Scotland.

The network has 60 members, and coupled with the Extra Help Unit, deliver Scotland’s Largest Independent Advice Network.

Their work encapsulates the entire geography of Scotland and every demographic: they look at the problems people bring to their advice services and campaign for change where it’s needed most. So when they speak out about something, it’s because it matters to people – whether it’s limiting the damaging effects of welfare reform or making sure payday loan companies can’t ruin lives.

In order that they can maintain the governance structure of the organisation, we are seeking experienced and motivated people from outside the Citizens Advice service to join their Board of Trustees.

In particular, we are keen to appoint individuals with the following knowledge and experience:

  • Significant senior management experience in a substantial organisation
  • Awareness of relationships with Government at Westminster and local level

This is a highly rewarding position, where you can help strategic decisions whilst ensuring the highest level of governance and service to those people who need independent advice the most.

There is a full information pack about the organisation, position and application process at www.aspenpeople.co.uk/CAS however if you have any direct questions or indeed want to help determine your suitability to the position, please call Steven Murray on 0141 212 7555 / 07807 074548 to discuss in complete confidence. 

Internal Trustees

If you are part of the CAB network and have a passion and commitment to ensuring that our governance and strategy development within CAS is of the highest level then we want to hear from you.  As a CAS Trustee you will be confident in your ability to contribute to Board discussions, to challenge constructively and to take collective responsibility for Board decisions.  In return for your hard work, you will get to play a key part in ensuring the Association delivers for the benefit of our community in Scotland.

In keeping with our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion, we encourage applications from individuals regardless of their sex, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief or marriage and civil partnership status.
