The Yare Valley and District Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) has begun the search for a new chief executive officer.

The bureau, which has offices in Wymondham, Attleborough and Yarmouth, needs someone to take the reins after the death of former CEO Lesley Jones.

Mrs Jones died last month after a long illness. She was 50.

Will James, acting chairman of the Yare Valley and District CAB, said the board of trustees, staff and volunteers had been working hard to ensure the smooth day to day running of the bureau and clients had not seen any changes in the services provided during Lesley's illness.

“It has been difficult for the board as Lesley was a lovely person who was very switched on and good at relating to our partner organisations” he said.

“We have a board of trustees who are all volunteers, many with day jobs. Since Lesley became ill, we have pitched in to help the senior staff with the day to day management, but we're looking forward to a new CEO. I'm acting as chairman for a couple of months as our usual chairman Judy Watson has become exhausted.”

The new CEO, who would receive a salary of up to £35,000, would in charge of the general management of the bureau, including managing its finances, building relationships with funders and community groups, maintaining its profile and strategically planning how the bureau will cope with today's challenges and those likely to arise in the future.

“We're looking for someone who can manage the organisation and shape its development,” said Mr James.

The closing date for applications is May 10. For an application pack, email chair@yarevalleycab.org.uk
