THE Citizens Advice Bureau is looking for a new chief executive for its Huntingdonshire branches.

Trustees of Rural Cambs CAB are recruiting for a replacement for Beverley Howard, who has fulfilled the role for 10 years, managing the teams giving advice and information to people with money, legal and other problems.

Mrs Howard, who has decided to step down for family reasons, said: “It’s a busy job and needs someone who can be full-time.

“Hopefully we will get a good successor who can move the bureau on to the next stage.”

The post is being advertised with a salary of between £36,000 and £41,000 and involves overseeing the CAB’s staff and volunteers in Huntingdon, St Neots, Ely and Wisbech.

Trustees want someone with a passion for serving the community and an understanding of the challenges faced by the voluntary sector.

Mrs Howard, who finishes at the end of September, said the successful applicant would also play a vital role in helping to establish a new contact centre in Huntingdon.
