Can you bring your professional expertise and passion for the Church, to a rewarding role as an Assembly Trustee? Would you like to share your skills & knowledge to serve on a recently created body within the Church of Scotland?
Following on from the 2019 General Assembly, the Assembly Trustees were set up in recognition that the existing structures could not deliver on the changes that were needed, and so as an Assembly Trustee you will be directly involved in ensuring the agencies of the Church are working to deliver the policies, projects and strategic objectives of the General Assembly.
Four of the first trustees must retire in May 2020 and their skills must be replaced with equally enthusiastic church members.
We are particularly looking for individuals who can bring experience of finance, human resources, grant making, civil law or IT.
Our aim is that the make up of the Assembly Trustees reflects the membership of the Church and the interests of those we serve and so we seek to ensure we have appropriate diversity within the Assembly Trustees.
