Central and East Northamptonshire Citizens Advice is an independent local charity committed to helping people find their way forward and overcome the problems they face. We do this by providing free, confidential advice, and by campaigning to make society fairer for everyone.

The organisation has expanded considerably in the last few years and now provides direct advice services to around 12,000 local clients annually although through providing a range of ancillary and regionally significant services, its total reach is considerably more. Total income for this financial year is expected to be in excess of GBP1.3 million and the organisation now employs over 40 people in a mixture of full and part time positions, working alongside almost 100 volunteers.

We now require:
