Trustee with Financial Experience (Voluntary)

Citizens Advice South Lincolnshire (CASL)  is one of 271 local Charities that make up the National Citizens Advice network, giving advice to those in need, and lobbying government to put right injustices.  The organisation performs well in the current challenging environment, with sound governance and strong finances, operating across a large region from Spalding to Stamford, Grantham and Market Deeping.

Due to retirement, CASL is now seeking to appoint a Trustee with financial experience, to guide and advise the Board and the Chief Officer on the key assumptions and financial implications of CASL’s budgets, operational and strategic plans.

They will monitor CASL’s income and expenditure, and in conjunction with the Chief Officer and other staff, present quarterly reports, including income and expenditure statements and balance sheets, to ensure that Board members understand the implications of accounts.

This is an opportunity for you to:

  • join a respected national charity
  • make a positive impact for people in your local area, and
  • gain valuable board experience and build leadership and strategy skills. 

The time commitment would be approximately 5 Board meetings and 5 committee meetings each year, plus an involvement of 1-2 days per month.

 For an informal discussion please contact the Chair, Monica Stark, at
