Volunteer to be a trustee

CARC is a company limited by guarantee and a registered charity. It is one of 290 local charities providing advice and information services. Operating under the national Citizens Advice Brand, we have to comply with the most stringent accreditation requirements. Rural Cambs sees annually more than 10,000 clients and deals with four times that number of individual issues.

The organisation has offices in Wisbech, Ely, Huntingdon and St Neots plus a Call Centre and has over 100 Volunteer Advisors supported by a Chief Officer and approximately 20 mostly part time staff. Major Funders include three District Councils and annual income exceeds £500,000.

Oversight and Strategic Direction is provided by volunteer Trustee/ Directors (currently the Board is comprised of 6), who themselves are not involved in the provision of advice. The Board normally meets 5 times a year usually in the evening and has an annual Away Day when strategy for the coming year(s) and other matters are discussed. However, members are expected to be involved in some additional activities, many of which may relate to areas of special interest to the individual concerned.

Three additional appointments are to be made. These opportunities will be attractive to individuals who seek one or more of the following:-

  • Support and contribute to an organisation that offers approachable, professional and non-judgemental advice to all sections of the local community
  • Deploy or develop organisational skills and experience which could include General Management, Finance, Marketing/Communications, Research and Campaigning and People Management.
  • Gain Board level experience of a dynamic organisation with sophisticated policies and procedures and modern IT.
  • To make a difference
