Trustee

  • Management Board
  • Unpaid
  • Glasgow
  • Closing 3rd August 2020

Role

The Glasgow School of Art Students’ Association is a student led charitable organisation, centred around supporting the needs of its members at the Glasgow School of Art. It is committed to ensuring that students at the Glasgow School of Art are represented academically, pastorally and creatively during their time at GSA. It has a Student Representative Council and works in partnership with GSA to deliver formal academic representation for students. The Trustee Board is made up of a combination of Sabbatical Officers and student trustees, who are members of the Student Representative Council.

We are seeking individuals with a good balance of skills and experience to support student trustees in their role, as well as to strengthen governance and leadership in the organisation.

Purpose of the Role

The role of an external trustee is to bring a professional perspective, informed by your experience and judgement, to decisions made concerning the governance and direction of the charity. You will ensure that the Association meets with all of its regulatory requirements as well as ensuring best practice in these areas. It is important that you align yourself with the aims and objectives of GSASA and its commitment to representation, accessibility, safe(r) spaces, equality, diversity and sustainability. You can find our recently updated Constitution here.

Further information about the role of Charity Trusteeship, legal responsibility and good practice within the role can be found on the OSCR (Scottish Charity Regulator)

Time Commitment

Given that the role of External Trusteeship is a new one for the Association, it is expected that external Trustees would be required to meet on a monthly basis for the first 4 months of their role. Thereafter, it is expected that the time commitment of Trustees would amount to 7 meetings a year as well as an Annual General Meeting, with additional meetings convened when necessary.

Board members are expected to serve a maximum of 2 terms of 3 consecutive years.

Person Specification

At this time we are particularly looking for candidates with a background in Law, and/or a background in management of cultural institutions or creative industries, however if you think you have skills and knowledge that would be of value to our organisation please do get in touch.
