Seeking Board members — 3 positions available
At U-evolve we support young people aged 11-18 in North Edinburgh to build confidence, resilience and self belief. We work in some of the lowest SIMD (Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation 2020) areas in Edinburgh and the young people we work with often experience socio-economic deprivation. Many are disengaged from education, experiencing mental health problems and relationship breakdowns. We believe all young people deserve happy and fulfilling futures, no matter where they are starting from.
This support has never been more needed, and we have seen a significant demand in our services as a result of the emotional pressures of Covid-19.
We are a grassroots charity committed to delivering incredible impact for young people. We are seeking new board members to help us drive forward our ambitious growth strategy and diversification, joining our recently appointed CEO to develop and implement the future work of U-evolve.
We welcome applicants from a diverse range of backgrounds who will add diverse perspectives and skills to U-evolve. We are particularly keen to see applications from those with strategic level experience in one or more of the following areas:
• Commercial or social enterprise
• Charity experience
Previous Board experience is not required, but proven experience in a leadership role is.
Closing date: 19 March 2021
If you share our vision and values and want to contribute to our success, please email our CEO Becky Duff your application form explaining why you want to join U-evolve and what you can bring to us. Send us an email if you want to arrange a chat with Becky or our Chair. The closing date is 19 March 2021.
Following shortlisting, interviews will take place using Zoom. Successful applicants will then be co-opted on to the Board at the next 2021 Board meeting and confirmed at our next AGM.
