As an occupational charity, caba helps the ICAEW community thrive by equipping individuals with the practical, emotional, or financial tools to manage whatever’s in front of them, from everyday situations to exceptional life-changing circumstances.
We want everyone in our community to thrive, but sometimes things get in the way or they’re too overwhelming to handle. Whether it’s the everyday or exceptional, expected or out of the blue, we’re there for our beneficiaries, whether they’re an ACA student, an existing or former ICAEW member or a close family dependent.
We do this through offering innovative solutions in supporting our membership in all aspects of their wellbeing be it physical, mental or financial, and also relationship, carers and careers support.
The Service Users, Support and Engagement Committee plays a key part in the charity, overseeing the charity’s support and services processes and policies. It also ensures that there’s an appropriate engagement strategy for the organisation and that caba understands who it is reaching and receives quality feedback on its services.
caba’s Service Users, Support and Engagement Committee currently comprises 3 members. They include experienced individuals with high-level expertise in a variety of roles including the charity sector and diversity and inclusion.
The successful candidate will have familiarity with similar support charities or broader experience in engagement and marketing and an awareness of how charities operate and an ability to operate at different levels, furthering the committee's work and the work of caba generally, within its charitable objects.
We’d particularly welcome candidates who have experience of:
- grant giving bodies support systems and frameworks benevolent bodies.
We welcome candidates with experience in any of these fields or from candidates who may wish to consider the role as part of their wider career development.
