More about the job

About the job

GNWCAB’s board of directors are looking for two new trustees to work alongside the chair, vice-chair and other board members to oversee and support our new Chief Executive to deliver an exciting new business plan over the next three years with our dynamic team of staff and volunteers.

The board is currently made up of 8 members, each offering a different skill-set designed to support the on-going governance needs, and strategic development aims of the organisation. The board has identified a gap in finance skills, and would welcome applications from individuals with experience of working across financial management, accountancy or other finance related professions.

GNWCAB’s staff team, volunteers and customers come from a diverse range of backgrounds, and widening access and inclusion is central to our business development plan. We welcome applications to the board from protected characteristic individuals who have lived experience of barriers to access or discrimination.

In addition to supporting the statutory governance requirements as set out in the Companies Act 2006 and Charities and Trustee Investment (Scotland) Act 2005, board members will be invited to contribute their unique skills through contributions to short life working groups, sub-groups, and ad- hoc pieces of development work as they arise.

GNWCAB is committed to the ongoing development of our staff and volunteers, and we provide opportunities for training and engagement across the organisation on a regular basis, some of which are delivered nationally our membership body, Citizens’ Advice Scotland.
