  • Glasgow
  • Closing 23rd December 2021

Playbusters have an exciting opportunity for 3 individuals to join the Board of Trustees to assist and guide our organisation as it moves forward. We are looking to recruit passionate and dynamic individuals.

Skills sought:

We are currently particularly interested in hearing from individuals with the following backgrounds or experience:

  • HR/Legal
  • Finance
  • Education
  • Youth & Community Work
  • Third Sector within Glasgow
  • Individuals living or working in the North East of Glasgow

However, we do have a few spaces available, so please do still get in touch if interested but have a different skillset to the above.

Commitment to the Charity:

As a minimum, you need to be able to commit to:

  • Frequently attending board meetings, of which there are approximately 8 per year (every six weeks, on a weekday evening, for 2.5 hours)
  • Attending infrequent development or strategic planning sessions (usually no more than once per year)

From time to time other short life working groups may be established by the board to progress particular pieces of work. In addition, individual trustees may agree to work closely with member(s) of the staff team on a specific issue, depending on their own skills and areas of expertise.

More widely trustees are expected to advocate on Playbusters behalf using a wide range of networks and may become involved in supporting and representing Playbusters at fundraising or other events.

Organisation Profile:

Playbusters supports some of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable people across the East End of Glasgow; including young people, families and the wider community. We provide opportunities for children and young people to socialise and take part in positive activities to improve health and wellbeing in a safe and secure environment and for their families and wider community to connect and form relationships.
