Do you want to help the community where you live, study or work?  Could you be interested in being part of the team which runs Citizens Advice Cheshire West?

We’re looking for people to help us develop our advice services for the people in our communities who need them and to secure the vital resources we need to go forward.   We are seeking to fill a number of trustee roles, and are particularly interested in backgrounds in HR, law, marketing or fundraising but will consider a range of skills and experience.

We are a member of the national Citizens Advice charity which means we have access to the services, resources and support provided by national Citizens Advice but as an independent charity, we’re responsible for running our own affairs within agreed standards. We have 34 staff,  approximately 120 volunteers, and offices situated in Chester, Ellesmere Port, Northwich and Winsford.


We offer a full induction and relevant training.  You’ll need to:

  • be available to attend at least six evening meetings each year
  • have a willingness to work as a team
  • actively participate in discussions that relate to the running of the organisation
  • act in the interests of Citizens Advice Cheshire West and that of its staff and clients.

People from all backgrounds are welcome and we aspire to have a diverse trustee board that reflects our clients and communities. We particularly welcome applications from women or the BAME community.

You do not need experience of working or volunteering with Citizens Advice service. We are looking for people with a wide variety of skills and a diversity of background and experiences.

The post of trustee is a voluntary one but all reasonable expenses are reimbursed. The role will provide you with a great deal of experience and satisfaction, the opportunity to develop your skills and utilise your expertise and knowledge.

If you’re looking for a rewarding and challenging volunteer role and would like further information, please send us an expression of interest with your contact details to Nicki Berg by email: [email protected]  or by telephone on 01606 815266.

Citizens Advice Cheshire West is committed to equality and diversity and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
