Voluntary Trustee (2 posts)

Agnes Hunter Trust

Location Edinburgh

Position Part time

Salary n/a

Application deadline 8 March 2019

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

·         help disabled people

·         assist with the education and training of disadvantaged people aged 16 years or over who have left school

The Trust has an annual grants programme of around £400,000, awarding grants twice a year.

The charity is looking to recruit 2 new Trustees to join the current Board, replacing 2 retiring members. In a voluntary capacity, these Trustees will attend all Board meetings 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 the grant award process, and the Board is keen to develop its diverse representation.

In particular, the Trust is seeking candidates with experience in:

·         legal matters, preferably in charity law

·         the voluntary sector, particularly those who have lived experience and/or involvement in service delivery

The Trust recognises the benefits of a diverse Board and therefore encourages applications from a range of backgrounds.

The closing date for applications is midday Friday 8th March 2019.
