Role

Cornerstone is one of Scotland’s largest charities and a leading provider of social care services to around 2,400 adults, children and young people with disabilities and other support needs. We employ 2,100 people across Scotland and are fully committed to delivering high quality care and support.

We are excited to share this great opportunity to join our Board of Directors. It is a very important time for Cornerstone, as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic and set a course for the future, following a comprehensive review of our pioneering Local Cornerstone strategy.

As a member of our Board, you would be instrumental in guiding the strategic future of the charity and ensuring exemplary governance and fiscal control. The main Board meets four times a year and, as members may be asked to support our key strategic subcommittees. You will also act as a local ambassador for Cornerstone.

Whilst we welcome applications from all who feel they can make a positive contribution to our charitable activities, our Board is particularly keen to hear from those with skills, knowledge and experience in one or more of the following areas:

• Financial planning and management

• Legal background

• Technology

• Lived experience of learning disability within your family

Cornerstone is committed to Equal Opportunities and we believe having a diverse Board is vital to our ongoing success. We particularly welcome applications from groups currently under-represented on our Board, including people from black and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds and people with disabilities. We welcome applications from anywhere in Scotland.

There is no renumeration attached to the role but expenses will be reimbursed.
