As part of our succession planning, we are seeking to have new Board members to work alongside our existing board in supporting the work of Granton Youth.
Becoming a Trustee can help develop transferable skills that can support career opportunities such as leadership, strategic planning and communication skills.
We are particularly interested in applications from those with a background in leading a charity or other organisation and/or would like to have the opportunity to develop leadership skills.
Who we are looking for:
As a registered charity with the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) Granton Youth trustees have responsibility for the effective governance of the organisation. They are responsible for the legal, financial and organisational overview of the organisation. The board supports a full time Manager who has day-to-day operational responsibility for the charity. GY has a clear strategy that underpins our work. The board includes people from across all sectors who bring their skills and experience to the role.
Granton Youth is guided by the legislation and good practice provided by OSCR.
The Board meets every 8 weeks or, as and, when required. Meetings are a mix of virtual and face to face. Meetings last approximately one hour to one and a half hours.
Successful applicants will require to undertake an PVG application process before taking up role – the charity will pay for associated costs and process applications.
An application form is attached to express an interest.
