Trustee Vacancies/Chairperson Vacancy

  • Management Board
  • Unpaid
  • Clackmannanshire
  • Closing 25th October 2021

  • Advertised from 27th September 2021


Would you like to help improve the lives of women, children and young people who have experience of domestic abuse in Clackmannanshire? Do you have an understanding of the feminist analysis of domestic abuse? Some time to give on a voluntary basis to provide leadership, legal and fiscal oversight, and to support the ongoing development of the vital services we provide?

We are looking to appoint experienced, enthusiastic and committed women, aged 16 years or over to our Board. We have several vacancies, one of which is the Chairperson’s position.

The Opportunity:This is an exciting opportunity to become part of our feminist governance team supporting and overseeing the development of the organisation to ensure the continued delivery of high quality, responsive services to vulnerable women, children and young people in our area. You do not need to know everything there is to know about domestic abuse, but you will need to prove that you are interested in our work, reliable, action focussed and committed to our principles and values.

We welcome applications from women with strategic vision, good independent judgement and the ability to work as part of a diverse team. We are committed to diversifying our Board so women representing all sections of the community are welcome! We are keen to add to existing skills and knowledge so we particularly want to hear from women with the following professional backgrounds: human resources/employment law, organisational development and change management, finance/charity accounting, fundraising, IT and women from a legal background. We also strongly encourage women who have personal experience of domestic abuse to offer us their personal insight into accessing and using the range of services offered by women’s aid and partners.

Time Commitment:The Board currently meet monthly via Zoom. The frequency and the method of meeting will continue to be reviewed regularly to meet the needs of the organisation. It is important that prospective trustees recognise that they will also be, at times, responsible for progressing pieces of work in between meetings, either on an individual basis on behalf of the Board or as part of a short life working group or a sub-group of the Board. There is also an expectation that new trustees will fully participate in a comprehensive induction, as well as ongoing training and support.
