The Marie Trust is a charity with an excellent and established reputation for its multi-faceted and progressive services delivery within the homelessness sector in Glasgow. The dedicated, experienced and highly skilled Board, staff and volunteers of The Marie Trust work tirelessly for and with some of the most disadvantaged individuals in Glasgow, many of whom exist in total destitution.
The charity has a centrally located operational base, providing vital holistic intervention and counselling services, a fully equipped training café, and several co-located outreaches, including a founding part in the award-winning CAN initiative, with a thriving charity shop based on Paisley Road West, and a large community of volunteers that support all areas of The Marie Trust’s mission.
The Marie Trust is now at an exciting juncture in its development, with a new Chief Executive in place and the formation of a new strategy fit for what will be a crucial but challenging period ahead.
To fulfil our ambitious strategy, we are therefore seeking 2-3 new Board members with skills and expertise in key areas such as Finance & Risk, Fundraising & Social Enterprise, and Law/Legal work. Experience and understanding of the Third Sector generally and of homelessness in particular is preferable, though not essential as full introductory and continuous training is given to all Board members.
Closing date: 31st March 2019

All new Board positions will be co-opted initially and co-opted again or elected at the next AGM.
