Glasgow North East Carers Centre is a registered charity, with a team of 16 staff members, providing services to unpaid family Carers who look after a family member or friend who cannot manage alone due to illness or disability, including Young Carers and their families.
We are looking to increase the membership of our volunteer Board of Directors, and whether experienced, or looking to become involved in a management board for the first time, we would like to hear from you.
In a hugely rewarding role, our Directors/Trustees provide oversight of the leadership and direction of our service provision, and the legal, financial and strategic management of the organisation.
Our Directors typically have knowledge, experience and interest in some of, but not limited to, the following areas:
• Issues affecting unpaid family Carers, and their essential role within our communities
• Finance and fundraising
• Business management
• Managing people
• Monitoring performance and service standards
Board meetings are held six weekly in the evenings, for 2hrs approximately. Sub committees meet in between as needed.
A full induction and ongoing support is provided, in addition to any training needed.

Our Family Support staff work directly with Carers, including Young Carers and their families, identifying supports and services which enable them to manage their caring role and maintain their own health and wellbeing.
Although assessment and care management experience is desirable, a willingness and commitment to learning is key, underpinned by strong admin, communication and organisational skills.
Delivering key supports and services to Carers during the current pandemic, the successful candidate will support our work via a mix of both home and office working.
