Citizens Advice SNPT LogoEach year Citizens Advice Swansea Neath Port Talbot help over 5,000 local people, and give advice on around 20,000 different issues.

They offer a range of specialist advice and support services, such as debt, welfare benefits, budgeting, fuel advice, for people of all ages and conditions.  

Trustees are volunteers with the skills, knowledge and experience to help guide and govern us. As a trustee you will work with the Chief Executive and other staff to shape our strategy and give direction.

It is an opportunity to be a leading part of a charity which helps some of the least well-off people in our community. 

The role of the Trustees is to make sure that the organisation lives within its means and plans for the future. They take ultimate responsibility for the work of their volunteers and paid staff.  It is sometimes challenging, but always rewarding to be part of an organisation which is able to help and advocate for some of the most disadvantaged members of our community. 

As you will appreciate, with the current Cost of Living crisis the work of CASNPT has never been more desperately needed, demand from the public is significantly high, and they operate in a very a challenging financial environment. 

Following a refresh of the Trustee board, they wish to appoint up to five new Trustees with ANY of the following experience and/or skill sets: 

  • A connection with Swansea Neath Port Talbot
  • Lived experiences of the types of issues affecting our clients 
  • Partnership working within Public Health/NHS/Local Authority
  • Marketing and Communications
  • Welsh Language Development
  • Finance
  • Legal 

Experience of working with boards or committees is not essential. If you share their values they’d love to hear from you, and offer support and training.

The trustees of CASNPT are committed to increasing the diversity of the Board (and of their thinking), and so would particularly encourage applications from women and any underrepresented groups.
