The Borders Third Sector Interface (TSI) is one of a network of 32 TSIs operating in Scotland, with one for each local authority area. Scotland's network of Third Sector Interfaces was established in 2011. Funded by the Scottish Government, TSIs aid the development of voluntary and community organisations, social enterprises, and volunteering. TSIs provide a vital link between the third sector and community planning.

The Borders TSI is transitioning into an independent charity in its own right. This fresh dynamic organisation is looking to maximise the capability of the voluntary organisations it represents across the Scottish Borders. It is an exciting time to join our Board and shape the Organisation’s future.


Are you passionate about helping the Third Sector, the local economy, shaping volunteering, influencing policy, aiding community development and supporting social enterprise, charities and community organisations across the Borders? Borders TSI [BTSI] are looking for an Independent Chair and Trustees to join its Board.

This is an exciting opportunity to become part of our governance team supporting and overseeing the development of the new organisation to ensure the delivery of high quality, responsive services to Third Sector Organisations in our area. You do not need to know everything there is to know about the Third Sector, but you will need to prove that you are interested in our work, be reliable, action focussed and committed to our principles and values.

We are keen to hear from those who may have experience or skills in the areas of HR, IT, legal, fundraising, marketing, social media and charity governance.
