Job Description

Convener
Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO)

We’re on the hunt for a new Convener. Could you take on one of the most influential board positions in Scotland’s third sector?

At SCVO, we passionately believe in the power of people, communities and the third sector.

We lobby and campaign to enhance the position of around 50,000 charities, community groups and social enterprises that make a massive difference to our most vulnerable citizens every day in every community.

Our services help free up time and money in third sector organisations across Scotland so they can focus on what they do best, whether that’s supporting the most vulnerable people in our communities or conducting cutting edge research. From providing a payroll service to creating thousands of jobs for young people in charities across Scotland, SCVO’s services make a real difference.

The new convener will join an organisation that is embracing digital change and that includes a series of successful, well-established business brands including Goodmoves, Third Force News and the Gathering.

They will also have an early and substantial opportunity to influence the future direction of the organisation through a strategic review in 2018.

We are searching for a special individual who can advocate for the third sector, and lead SCVO’s board and staff into the future. Candidates will already have significant experience and a high profile in Scottish public life, but they will also have a special affinity with the values and aspirations of Scotland’s third sector.

To apply please click the button below to submit your CV and covering to the Chair of the interview panel, Graham Curran. 

Closing date for receipt of CVs is Friday 22nd December 2017 (by 12 noon)
