Following the Scottish Government’s programme of reform of the college sector, which saw colleges grouped into defined geographical regions, The Lanarkshire Board performs the statutory function as the Regional Strategic Body for Lanarkshire and East Dunbartonshire and is responsible for the effective governance of New College Lanarkshire and South Lanarkshire College.
To meet current and anticipated recruitment needs, we are seeking applications from individuals who have the right skills, knowledge, attributes and experience to make a valuable contribution as a Board Member to the Board’s work and the strategic direction of the Lanarkshire colleges.

The vision of the Refugee Survival Trust is that all refugees and asylum seekers in Scotland receive just and respectful treatment and support appropriate to their needs. We've been working for more than 20 years to assist some of the most vulnerable members of our society, particularly those who are facing destitution.
RST is based in Glasgow, with an income of around £350k pa and fewer than than five full-time employees, providing grants and integrated support services to asylum seekers and refugees living in Scotland. These alleviate poverty and destitution, or help with access to education and employment, and thus to integration.
Our Treasurer and the head of the HR subgroup are standing down from our volunteer Board of Trustees, so we are now looking particularly for suitably experienced enthusiastic professionals with HR or Finance / Accountancy expertise to fill these incredibly important positions on our board.

Those with suitable skills and experience in these and other areas (such as senior management, organisational development / strategy, fundraising and others) would be of interest. We are keen to recruit people with previous experience of charity or corporate governance. The board is made up of people with a variety of backgrounds and experiences who share our vision and who bring a range of skills essential to the successful governance of the charity, offering leadership, strategic direction, financial management and general oversight, along with a willingness to help as needed to promote the success of the Refugee Survival Trust.
Board meetings take place every 6-8 weeks, alternating between Edinburgh and Glasgow and board members should have the motivation and time to commit around 6-10 hours per month to help with the management and smooth running of the organisation. Travel and other expenses will be reimbursed.
