GWT is looking to recruit 2 or 3 individuals (including a young person) to join our Board of Trustees and help guide our organisation 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.

  • Work experience in housing/architecture with an interest in intergenerational housing

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.

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.
