Trustee Vacancy – Young Person

GWT is looking for a young person to join the board of volunteer trustees who has some experience of working in the voluntary, public or private sector who want to become actively involved.

Our Trustees are responsible and accountable for the overall strategic leadership and direction of the organisation and will share our vision and passion about promoting strong, generationally connected communities.

This volunteer will bring a young person’s perspective to the board and the work of GWT, have strong communication skills, a range of expertise and experiences plus understanding and enthusiasm to contribute.

To support the successful applicant the board will ensure the young person is mentored by one of our experienced trustees. The chair will also ensure that board meetings involve active questioning and listening given to all trustees.

Trustees are appointed for a term of 3 years and are eligible to serve a further 3-year term, after which they must retire from the board.

Board meetings are held four or five times a year (normally in Glasgow). As a small charity it is expected that Board members will take on additional responsibilities between meetings consistent with the objectives of GWT. This may include membership of Task and Finish Groups, Standing Committees or specific tasks consistent with their areas of expertise.

To apply please email a covering letter stating why you are interested in joining the board of GWT along with your CV to Alison Clyde, National Development Manager.
