Charity registered in Scotland SC046842
Scotland’s women and labour market expert, Close the Gap, is looking for new trustees. Committed to women’s labour market equality, you’ll have the ability to think strategically and creatively, and to respond to the needs of the organisation. You’ll also be able to commit the time to fulfil the role of trustee, and help us meet our strategic objectives.
Close the Gap is strongly committed to equality, and recognises that diverse boards are more effective, and result in better governance practice. We would particularly welcome applications from Black and minority ethnic people, disabled people, and lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people who are currently under-represented on our board. We’re also particularly interested in receiving applications from people that have knowledge and experience in finance and fundraising.
Close the Gap is Scotland’s expert policy and advocacy organisation working on women’s labour market participation. We work strategically with policymakers, employers and unions to address the causes of women’s inequality at work. Close the Gap was established as a partnership initiative in 2001, and became a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation in 2016.
