Aberdeen Cyrenians is a charity and social care services provider with a 54 year history of supporting some of the most vulnerable people in North East Scotland. First started by Aberdeen University students as a soup kitchen, Aberdeen Cyrenians now put the needs of North East Scotland's most vulnerable and socially excluded people first — leading at the frontline of service, care and influence.
From these beginnings, Aberdeen Cyrenians has grown into a cornerstone of Aberdeen, supporting the most vulnerable people in our city facing crisis, trauma, addiction, homelessness, and isolation.
We are currently recruiting for 2 new Trustee Directors to join our Board of Directors. This is a voluntary role with the typical time commitment being approximately 3 hours each month reading documents in advance and attending our Board Meeting and a further one to two hours supporting a sub-committee working group which you will be part of.
We welcome applications from candidates from all walks of life, but are particularly interested in hearing from groups that are under-represented on our current Board, such as those with extensive working experience in Social Work and/or Social Care.
You can find further information on the role and our requirements on our website. You can also contact us to arrange a confidential discussion using the contact details in the Recruitment Pack.
Given the nature of our work, it is a requirement that all volunteers and employees of Aberdeen Cyrenians undertake an enhanced disclosure through the Protecting Vulnerable Groups (“PVG”) Scheme.
