Chair of the Board of Trustees

Closing date: Monday 10th December


LGBT Health and Wellbeing is governed by a Board of Trustees, who are who are responsible for ensuring that the charity is well-managed in line with its vision and mission and that it abides by its charitable objectives.

Our Board of Trustees is made up of a range of individuals from across the community who bring wide perspectives from different sectors of Scottish life and ensure that the organisation maintains a clear focus on our strategic objectives and vision. Alongside regular Board meetings, Trustees contribute their expertise to the organisation through the Trustee-led Marketing and Communication, People and Audit, Finance and Fundraising Subcommittees. Details of our current Board members can be found on our website, here.

As Chair, you will facilitate and lead the Board of Trustees in overseeing the execution of LGBT Health and Wellbeing’s mission and vision. The Chair will provide inclusive and collegiate leadership to the Board of Trustees and working with all Trustees and the Company Secretary to ensure that the individual members of the Board fulfil their duties and responsibilities for the effective governance of the charity. The Chair will also provide support and constructive challenge to the Chief Executive through acting as line manager for that post. They will act as an ambassador and the public face of the charity in partnership with the Chief Executive.

Anticipated time commitment is approximately 7 hours per month (variable, as required) which includes 6 or 7 Board meetings a year, Annual General Meeting and support and supervision for Chief Executive, attendances at Board sub-committees and ad hoc meetings/engagements.
