Age Scotland, the national charity for older people, works tirelessly to help improve the lives of everyone over the age of 50. Our vision is a Scotland that is the best place in the world to grow older and for us all to live the very best life we can in ‘later life’. We are dedicated to inspiring, advising, involving and engaging older people, and influencing all those whose decision-making impacts on the lives of older people. Age Scotland works in partnership with Age UK, based in London, although we are an independent charity with our own Board and executive team responsible for our work in Scotland.
The timing of new Trustees joining us could not be more important. We are currently thinking about how we evolve our strategy and approach to make us the most effective Scottish charity we can be, so we need people with the ambition and imagination to help us define and shape that future direction, and our priorities and goals, building on the exceptional contribution our team is already making to the lives of older people in Scotland.
We are recruiting four new Trustees as part of planned succession and to bring strength, expertise and engagement to our Board. We need people with knowledge and commitment and the drive and energy to be part of Age Scotland’s mission to serve older people. In particular, we are looking for Trustees with the following experience:
- finance, commercial or social enterprise
- knowledge of challenges facing older people or practitioner experience
- HR, change and transformation
We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic people who are currently under-represented within Age Scotland. We are also particularly interested in applications from people of all gender identities and sexual orientation. Our goal is to be a diverse board of Trustees where our Trustees have the opportunity to bring their valuable knowledge and perspective to our discussions.
