Description

This is an exciting opportunity to join a team of Trustees in a friendly organisation making a difference to the lives of vulnerable children in Scotland. Support and mentoring can be provided to those who are interested but may be early in their careers and/or lacking experience in acting as a board member.

Harmeny is committed to equality of opportunity and the promotion of diversity, including in relation to its Board. While we welcome applications from all parts of society, we are particularly interested in receiving applications from candidates from racially diverse backgrounds, younger candidates and those who are care experienced (such as someone who has been in care or the parent or carer of such a person). We welcome individuals contacting us to discuss whether they might be suitable.

A fuller job description and person specification can be provided by request or here http://www.harmeny.org.uk/jobs. Harmeny is a values-led organisation and a good fit with our ethos is as important to us as having relevant experience.
