£35,000 - £40,000 (negotiable)
Fixed term contract, 6 months
Citizens Advice York provides free, independent, confidential and impartial advice to everyone who lives or works in York. It is a successful charity providing a high standard of advice and client service to over 5000 clients a year across a wide range of areas and issues.
Our current CEO is leaving to head up a larger Citizens Advice Centre elsewhere and we’re looking for someone with Chief Executive or similar experience to lead the staff and volunteers team, to continue the implementation of our current plans and contribute to the Trustee Board discussions on future strategy.
You’ll need to have senior experience in an organisation providing advice and support to the general public on a wide range of issues and to access benefits and services. Ideally, but not necessarily so, this would be within a Citizens Advice Centre. You will also need a good understanding of financial management; successful experience of income generation and contract management, the professional and personal qualities to lead our team of staff/volunteers and to work well with funders and other stakeholders.
The interim contract will start at the beginning of February and is expected to last for six months. In the current situation we believe that the work will need to be, and largely can be, done remotely and normally only one or two days a week will need to be spent in York.
If you have the skills and experience for this role, we’d like to talk to you about this opportunity.
