Non-Executive Directors

  • Management Board
  • Unpaid
  • Glasgow
  • Closing 3rd November 2023

The Family Therapy Training Network is seeking committed individuals who can provide strategic leadership to our organisation.

Established in 2012, the Family Therapy Training Network provides professionally and academically accredited, masters-level systemic family psychotherapeutic training to a variety of health, social care and independent/third sector services. Systemic therapy helps people who are in relationships, including to, amongst others, children and families who want to change their relationships and staff teams and organisations who seek to improve communication and coordination of services.

We are a professional board with a range of skills, but following the departure of two key board members we are taking the opportunity to review our board’s membership. To increase the diversity of our board, we are looking for three individuals with a range of skills. Most importantly, our board members need to have a commitment to children and families getting the best services, and receiving support to improve their relationships and the quality of their lives.

Non-Executive Members/Trustees - Board members will contribute to the overall governance, financial health and strategic direction of the organisation. Previous board experience is not required, and while we welcome applications from a range of backgrounds, we are particularly interested in hearing from those with the following skills:

• HR and people skills

• Corporate/business experience

• Strategic planning

We want our board to be active in our organisation and in addition to four to six board meetings, and our AGM, we welcome attendance at our continuous professional development events. Because of the wide application of the systems and relationship ideas that inform our training, we hope board membership will enhance directors skills in their own work context. We are based in Glasgow but most of our directors meetings are online. The post is unremunerated but any travelling expenses are reimbursed.
