Make a Difference as a Trustee for Citizens Advice Oxford (voluntary)

We can all face problems that seem complicated or intimidating. At Citizens Advice Oxford we believe no one should have to face these problems without good quality, independent advice. Thousands of people each year come to us for advice on employment, housing and benefits. Could you help us ensure we are delivering this much-need service to the people of Oxford?

Citizens Advice Oxford is an independent local charity that is part of the well-known national network of local advice services. As a local charity, our Trustee Board is responsible for leading the strategic direction of the organisation, ensuring it has the right resources to fulfill its charitable objectives.

As the city emerges from the impact of the pandemic, we are thinking about our future advice framework and to learn from our experiences of the past year. We are looking for new Trustees to strengthen our Board so that we can respond appropriately to the changing landscape for our services.

We are therefore looking for trustees who have general relevant experience but particularly with skills and experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • Community engagement
  • Campaigning on social issues
  • Finance and risk
  • Customer service
  • IT and data analysis
  • HR and legal matters
  • Funding and commissioning

The Trustee Board also wishes to ensure it has representation in keeping with our equality and diversity values and so would particularly welcome applications from all backgrounds.

You can find out more about the role of a trustee here and if you would like to discuss the role informally with us before submitting your application, please email our Chair of Trustee Board

Applications should be submitted on application form which can be requested by contacting


Citizens Advice Oxford recognises the positive value of diversity, promotes equality and challenges discrimination. We welcome and encourage job applications from people of all backgrounds
