Spinal Injuries Scotland (SIS) is a national voluntary organisation that exists to support patients and members who suffer from Spinal Cord Injured (SCI) or a Neurological Spinal Cord Condition, their relatives, friends and carers. Our charitable aim is ‘the advancement to health’.

We are looking for 2 or 3 individuals 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. We are looking to recruit enthusiastic and dynamic individuals with experience of operations, fundraising, volunteer support, HR, marketing, communications and/or finance to our Board of Trustees.

Applicants will have the experience and skills to ensure that the charity continues to develop and provide high quality long term services. As a Trustee, you will be required to contribute to the governance of the organisation including attendance at regular board meetings and the AGM.

The Board now meet approximately every 6 weeks.

Spinal Injuries Scotland are particularly keen to receive applications from individuals with personal experience of, or connection to spinal cord injury, but it’s not an essential requirement. A full induction will be given.

The position would be for a trial period, initially for 6 months, to see if this would be a fit for both you and for SIS. In terms of commitment we would expect you to be able to spend at least 5 hours a month serving as a Trustee for a period of at least 2 years.

Preferred candidates will be required to join the PVG Scheme or undergo a PVG Scheme update check will be required to be carried out for the role.

Please see the attached Role Description and Personal Specification.
