Grant Making Trust seeks 2 Voluntary Trustees

  • Management Board
  • Unpaid
  • Edinburgh
  • Closing 4th March 2022

  • Advertised from 2nd February 2022


The Agnes Hunter Trust SCIO is an independent charitable trust that provides grants to registered charities in Scotland that:

  • help disabled people; or
  • assist with the education and training of disadvantaged people aged 16+ who have left school.

The Trust has an annual grants budget of around £550,000/yr, awarding grants at Board meetings twice a year.

We are looking to recruit 2 new Trustees to join the current Board of 6 members. In a voluntary capacity, the Trustees will attend all Board meetings either online or in person in Edinburgh (typically 4-5/yr) and serve for a 5-year term, renewable for 3 years.

This is an exciting opportunity for candidates to assist in the progression of the Trust and we are seeking particular skillsets that will complement the current Board. We would like to recruit:

  • one candidate with investment experience; and
  • one candidate with third sector knowledge/ experience.

Sound knowledge of charity governance would also be of benefit.

The Trust recognises the benefits of a diverse Board and therefore encourages applications from a range of backgrounds, particularly individuals who may have first-hand experience of one of the Trust’s funding policy areas.

Previous Board experience is not essential.
