Trustee Vacancy

GWT is looking to recruit 2 or 3 proactive and motivated individuals (including a young person ) to join our Board of Trustees and help guide the charity as it moves forward into what we see as a new and exciting phase.

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.

GWT is keen to attract people to our board with skills, knowledge and experience in:

  • Fund-raising and sponsorship
  • Communications and marketing
  • Education
  • Health & Social care
  • Housing/Architecture – with an interest in developing intergenerational housing in Scotland

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.

Application notes:
To apply please email a covering letter stating why you are interested in joining the board of GWT along with your CV to the Chief Executive Officer, Alison Clyde.

Please note GWT is happy to set up video conferencing for board meetings to allow Trustees to link into the meetings from rural locations throughout Scotland.

To discuss the Trustee role further please email George Kay, Chair of the Board.
