The Board has recently recruited a new CEO and together this marks a new phase in SCC’s development with the crafting of a new Business Plan 2020-25, which will be launched at our AGM in September 2020.
It is both an exciting and challenging time to join us as a Director!
So, if you want to truly make a difference in shaping the strategic direction of this highly regarded charity supporting Unpaid Carers in the heart of Scotland, then this is a great opportunity to become a vital part of a highly skilled, dedicated Board and to work with our new CEO, staff and volunteers to help take SCC to the next stage in its development.

• Governance & Charity Law
• Fundraising & Income Generation

Experience and understanding of the Statutory, Third and Health Sectors in general is preferable, though not essential as full training will be provided to all new Directors during their induction.

We therefore welcome applications to the Board from protected characteristic individuals who have lived experience of barriers to access or discrimination. In addition to supporting the statutory governance requirements as set out in the Companies Act 2006 and Charities and Trustee Investment (Scotland) Act 2005, Directors will be invited to contribute their unique skills through contributions to short life working groups, sub-groups, and ad-hoc development work as they arise
