Wellbeing Economy Alliance (Scotland) – Trustee recruitment notice
The Wellbeing Economy Alliance (WEAll) is a new global collaboration of organisations, alliances, movements and individuals working together to change the economic system to create a wellbeing economy; one that delivers human and ecological wellbeing.
Scotland is a key player in the global movement for a wellbeing economy. Across Scotland, the purpose of the economy and the dominant model of growth is being reconsidered, with pioneering projects springing up within different sectors. WEAll (Scotland) will connect these initiatives, amplify narratives and create a safe space for government, businesses and society to question the current economic model and champion bold new policies. See https://wellbeingeconomy.org/scotland
We are seeking to recruit three Trustees, from a variety of backgrounds, to join our Board and drive forward our work to support positive change. You will be passionate about the need for economic system change, and you will have a good understanding of the issues facing our economy, society and natural environment. You should be confident that you can make a valuable contribution to our work and comfortable with working at Board level. However, prior Board experience is not a requirement.
The Board will play a vital role setting WEAll Scotland’s strategy, overseeing a small core team and acting as ambassadors of the charity. Trustees will be appointed for an initial period of up to three years with potential for extension. The commitment required is a minimum of one day per quarter (attending Board meeting and preparation). We would also expect trustees to take an active role and interest in the charity beyond attending meetings, for example by attending public events on behalf of WEAll and by taking on pieces of work for and on behalf of the Board. There is no remuneration, however all necessary travel and accommodation expenses will be reimbursed.
If you feel you have the passion, experience and commitment please send a letter/email setting out why you are interested in the role and your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The closing date for applications is 31st May.
