The Organisation

Scottish Attachment in Action is a membership charity aiming to ensure that everyone can understand the fundamental importance of attachment relationships throughout life by:

• Providing training and consultancy in attachment and trauma to practitioners, parents, carers and the wider community

• Providing information through educational resources, conferences, events, research, social media, website, and newsletters.

Scottish Attachment in Action is a small charity with a significant reach and reputation and an exciting range of current areas of influence and work.

The Role

We are now looking to co-opt a new Chair to our Board, someone who shares our values and who also brings strategic leadership skills which will complement those within the existing Board.

We especially welcome interest from those with third sector experience in undertaking a similar leadership role in helping organisations navigate periods of change and opportunity. Full role description can be viewed here.

As Chair you will be required to provide leadership and support to the Board, and ensure its focus on strategic direction, planning and implementation. The role will also require you to share the ambassadorial role of Chair, as well as supervision to one or two members of staff.

Time commitments include attendance at Board meetings (10 per year) plus 2 Development Days, an Annual Conference and the AGM. Our work and meetings are conducted virtually as well as in-person.

This is a voluntary role (necessary expenses, for example travel, will be paid) but one which requires commitment and dependability. Time commitments are currently up to 10 hours per month. In return, as a Trustee you will receive induction and support, an opportunity to shape the work of Scottish Attachment in Action, and channel your passion and skill into making all of Scotland attachment informed.
