Ceartas (pronounced KEIR-tis) is a Gaelic word meaning ‘equality, justice and fairness’. These are the values which we promote through our work with the people of East Dunbartonshire.
Ceartas is both a Company Limited By Guarantee, and recognised as a charity by HM Revenue and Customs, registered in Scotland with Companies House SC264199, and registered with OSCR SCO25369.
As such, members of our Board are referred to as either Directors (company) or Trustees (charity).
Ceartas has a strong board of volunteer Directors / Trustees, with a wide range of skills and experience that bring strong governance and direction to the organisation. Being a volunteer on our Board is an unpaid role that requires a degree of commitment, and as such we do not expect Board members to stay in post indefinitely.
What we are looking for:
We are actively seeking individuals who may be interested in joining our Board of Trustees/Directors now or in the future.
We are committed to Equal Opportunities and are looking to ensure we are representative and reflective of the communities we serve.
Whether you are an experienced Director or Trustee or looking to take your first steps onto a Board, we want to hear from you. Our Directors/Trustees will have skills, experience or passion for one or more of the following areas:
• Human Resources
• Lobbying skills
• Business development
• Ensuring services are accessible & inclusive
• Building effective and collaborative working relationships.
• Community Development
Deadline for applications: Monday 27 September 2021
Interviews: W/c 4 October 2021 (either in person or via Zoom)
