Job Vacancies at Community Law Service
Community Law Service (Northampton and County) is a registered charity and an independent provider of specialist social welfare advice. Our aim is to improve the health and wellbeing of local residents through the provision of specialist advice in the areas of Welfare Benefits, Debt, Housing, Energy Advice, and Immigration.
In the current economic climate organisations like Community Law Service play a vital role in providing advice and support to clients in debt crisis or in danger of losing their home. These are two of the major areas of activity for our staff.
As the board of directors of the company and trustees of the charity, we are now actively seeking new board members to increase our skill base and support the charity. In particular we are looking for candidates with a background in finance or fundraising who can bring their skills and expertise to the organisation supporting a substantial budget from a number of different funders.
Board meetings are held each month, either online or at our main office in Hazelwood Road, Northampton, at present on a Tuesday. The Board is responsible for setting the strategy and policies of the organisation and guides and supports the Chief Executive and her staff.
