The Money Advice Liaison Group (MALG) has announced that is looking for a new Chair. Current MALG Chair Liz Barclay will step down later this year after three years in the role.
MALG says the new Chair must be passionate about improving the lives of people in problem debt; someone with influencing skills and ambition to bring together creditors, advice bodies, policymakers and others active in the debt sector, to share best practice, insight and understanding in an open, non-judgemental forum. The Chair should bring exceptional leadership skills and an ability to bring balance in MALG’s work, recognising the diverse interests of those operating with the sector.
The role is unremunerated but reasonable expenses incurred in fulfilling the Chair’s duties will be reimbursed. Board and committee meetings take place quarterly in London with work between meetings usually carried out by telephone or e-mail. A time commitment of around two to three days a month would be necessary.
MALG’s Executive Officer Bob Winnington said: “This is a dynamic period with a number of changes taking place within the sector that will impact the work of MALG. Working with the Board and Executive Committee the new Chair will review the organisation’s strategy and plans in the light of these changes and the need to ensure value is provided for members.”
MALG is a not-for-profit UK membership organisation whose purpose is to galvanise organisations to ‘work together to improve the lives of people with problem debt.
