GWT is looking to recruit 2 or 3 individuals (including a young person) to join our Board of Trustees and help guide our organisation as it moves forward into what we see as a new and exciting phase.
Our Trustees are responsible and accountable for the overall strategic leadership and direction of the organisation and will share our vision and passion about promoting strong, generationally connected communities.
In particular we are seeking trustees with experience and skills including:
Trustees are appointed for a term of 3 years and are eligible to serve a further 3-year term, after which they must retire from the board.
Board meetings are held four or five times a year (normally in Glasgow). As a small charity it is expected that Board members will take on additional responsibilities between meetings consistent with the objectives of GWT. This may include membership of Task and Finish Groups, Standing Committees or specific tasks consistent with their areas of expertise.
Please note GWT is happy to set up video conferencing for board meetings to allow Trustees to link into the meetings from rural locations throughout Scotland.
GWT has developed out of one of the six core actions from the 2007 Strategy for an Ageing Population. Its vision is for a Scotland where people of all ages value, respect and support each other. It is based on a network of regional groups that covers the whole of Scotland and for a small organisation has had a significant impact to date.
GWT has mainly been funded by the Scottish Government however GWT achieved charity status as a SCIO on the 29th July 2015 to allow additional funding streams to be secured.
Closing Date: Tuesday 30th April 2019
