The Carnegie UK Trust currently has a vacancy on its Board of Trustees for someone with financial expertise.

Could you contribute to the work of one of the UK’s longest-established foundations? The Carnegie UK Trust, set up in 1913 by Scots-American industrialist Andrew Carnegie, has a mission to improve wellbeing for people in the UK and Ireland. As a modern operating trust, we seek to influence ideas and policy while also being active in testing and delivering real-life solutions.

Due to a retirement, we are now looking for a new Trustee with financial expertise to help shape and support the work of the Trust as we develop our Strategic Plan for 2021-2025.

Working with the CEO and the Finance and Corporate Services Manager, this Trustee will take a lead role for the Board in ensuring that the Trust’s financial obligations are met, bringing an external perspective and supportive challenge to our financial planning and management.

Candidates should have a strong interest in promoting individual and community wellbeing, with a background in finance and/or accounting in the public, private or voluntary sector. You will be willing to represent the Trust, and to commit time to the governance of the Trust’s wide-ranging work on policy and practice. The Trust is headquartered in Dunfermline, Scotland and works across the whole of the UK and Ireland. We welcome applications from all jurisdictions.

The closing date for applications is 7th February at 5pm and interviews will be held in Dunfermline during the week beginning 2nd March 2020.
