Overview

Opportunity: Board of Trustees for Money Advice Plus  – Trustees with experience of campaigning/ marketing

We are pleased to invite expressions of interest in two vacancies that we have on our Board.

Money Advice Plus is a major charity based in Brighton/ Hove and Eastbourne. We help people to manage their money effectively through expert benefit, debt and budgeting advice, and practical money-handling support. Our non-judgemental and flexible approach is tailored to each individual, and we work with some of the most vulnerable people in the community.

The Board of Trustees are looking to bring into their team two Trustees with skills and experience that reflect some of our current challenges. In particular, we are seeking to

·         strengthen our ability to campaign and influence social policy;

·         strengthen our ability to market and develop our business.

In addition to these specific areas, we hope that our new Trustees will bring a high level of enthusiasm and commitment, and be involved in all aspects of our work. In time the successful applicants may seek to take on officer roles on the Board.

We have been operating in one form or another since 1897. Like all charities, MAP faces huge challenges driven by changes in social policy and funding for this sector. MAP has an outstanding staff team, and the new Board members will have a crucial role in ensuring that they have the support and representation that they deserve.

For the successful candidates, it is a great opportunity to gain experience of strategy and governance, and to make a significant difference to our community. As always, we will welcome the opportunity to increase the skill set and diversity of the Board.

More information about the role of the Board and its members is available on our website. www.moneyadviceplus.org.uk
