The Robertson Trust is currently recruiting four new trustees to join and support their work to build lasting solutions to poverty and trauma in Scotland.
Whether a candidate has previous board experience or not, they are open to new ideas, perspectives, and challenge. They particularly welcome applications from interested people with lived or professional experience in any of these areas:
Working with people facing poverty and trauma in Scotland
Equity, diversity, participation and rights, especially in advancing racial justice
Social Impact Investment
Rural development in Scotland
Corporate governance, business or finance roles
The trust also recognise they have the greatest chance of success if their board and staff teams draw upon a wide range of experience and knowledge. Having a more diverse board is a key priority. They want to improve gender balance, which has shifted following a recent pattern of retirements. They also want to enrich the range of experience we currently have on the board by encouraging applications from a variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds.
