MND Scotland’s vision is a world without MND. Until that day comes we’re on a mission to ensure everyone affected by MND across the country has our support every step of the way. Our current three-year strategy builds on the achievements of the last forty years and also seeks to correctly position MND Scotland for a sustainable future to ensure we deliver our mission. We’d like your help to do that.
We are recruiting three new Trustees to join our Board. Whilst we’re always interested in receiving applications from a wide range of backgrounds, at this time we’re particularly keen to hear from individuals with the skills to fulfil the following roles;
As a Trustee you will play an important role in setting the strategic direction of the charity whilst providing support, guidance and constructive challenge to the Board and the CEO. You will also act as an ambassador for MND Scotland and help us ensure that everyone right across the country knows of the work we do and how we can help them if they need us.
Becoming one of our Trustees is not something to be undertaken lightly. It takes commitment, passion and dedication. You may be pushed out of your comfort zone on occasion or indeed frequently. If that makes you uncomfortable then you’re probably not who we are looking for. If however, you are looking to help make a real difference to people’s lives and to grow both personally and professionally then we’d be really keen to hear from you, particularly if you have a background in any of the specified areas we are looking for.
Previous Board experience would be great but it’s not essential. You don’t have to have a personal link to MND. Nor do you have to have a charity background, however, this may be beneficial. What is much more important is your passion, ability to think strategically and your desire to get involved and make a difference. It’s also important that you know MND Scotland has a strong commitment to embracing diversity and inclusion.
