New Trustees Needed!

By 13th July 2020 No Comments

We are looking to recruit a number of new Trustees with a wide range of skills and experience to support the strategic development of the organisation. Whilst all applicants will be considered, we are particularly looking for candidates with experience and knowledge of working with children and young people, law, accounting and finance and the third sector.

As a Trustee you will be responsible for the strategic direction and accountability of the organisation, ensuring it meets its charitable objectives and complies with its governing document, legislation and regulations.

The Board meet once per month and a time requirement of approximately 4 hours per month is required of Trustees. Meetings would normally be held at our premises in South Bridge Resource Centre, 6 Infirmary Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1LT, however in the current circumstances meetings are being held online.

All appointments will be subject to PVG and reference checks.

To apply please send a copy of your CV to Clare Jamieson at with a covering email detailing why you would like to join Canongate Youth as a Trustee. Informal discussions to provide more information and answer any questions are also welcomed at the above noted email address.
