Join our Board of Trustees

We are looking for people willing to bring energy, enthusiasm, and commitment to the role of Trustee, and who will broaden the diversity of thinking on our board, with a good understanding of the issues affecting the children and families we support.

Trustee - (Non-Executive Director)

We are always keen to hear from those who may be interested in joining our Board of Trustees.

We are particularly keen to hear from anyone with experience in any of the following areas:

  • Finance

  • Accountancy 

  • Book Keeping

 

You do not need previous governance experience – we will provide a full induction and training.

To apply submit a CV by email to HR@craighalbert.org.uk, together with a note of interest of no more than 250 words outlining why you are interested in volunteering as a Trustee for SCCMI. 

Being a Trustee

Our trustees play a vital role in making sure that the SCCMI achieves its core purpose. They oversee the overall management and administration of the charity. They also ensure that the SCCMI has a clear strategy and that our work and goals are in line with our vision.

 

Just as importantly, they support and challenge the executive team to enable the SCCMI to grow and thrive, and through this, achieve our mission to enable all children/young people with motor learning difficulties throughout Scotland to develop their cognitive, psychomotor abilities, and life skills to improve the quality of their lives and achieve their maximum level of independence.

 

Board members have a collective responsibility. This means that trustees always act as a group and not as individuals.

Your Responsibilities as Trustee

You will serve on our Board, overseeing the governance of the charity on a voluntary basis and using your skills and experiences to help us run successfully and deliver projects to support the enablement of children and their families affected by motor impairments to achieve their potential and fulfil their ambitions.

As a trustee, your responsibilities include:

  • Support and provide advice on the SCCMI’s purpose, vision, goals, and activities.

  • Approve operational strategies and policies and monitor and evaluate their implementation.

  • Oversee the SCCMI’s financial plans and budgets and monitor and evaluate progress.

  • Ensure the effective and efficient administration of the organisation.

  • Ensure that key risks are being identified, monitored, and controlled effectively.

  • Review and approve the SCCMI’s financial statements.

  • Provide support and challenge to the SCCMI’s CEO in the exercise of their delegated authority and affairs.

  • Keep abreast of changes in the SCCMI’s operating environment.

  • Contribute to regular reviews of the SCCMI’s own governance.

  • Attend Board meetings, adequately prepared to contribute to discussions.

  • Use independent judgment, acting legally and in good faith to promote and protect the SCCMI’s interests, to the exclusion of their own personal and/or any third-party interests.

  • Contribute to the broader promotion of the SCCMI’s objects, aims and reputation by applying your skills, expertise, knowledge, and contacts.

  • There may be times when the trustees will need to be actively involved beyond Board meetings. This may involve scrutinising board papers, leading discussions, focusing on key issues, providing advice and guidance on new initiatives, presenting externally, or other issues in which the trustee has special expertise.

Trustees are asked, as far as possible to be available for:

  • Board of Trustee Meetings (approximately 4 meetings per year)

  • Trustee business in support of the Centre (approximately 4 hours per month)

Meetings are held in person on a Thursday from 1:30pm - 3:30pm at Craighalbert Centre, 1 Craighalbert Way, Cumbernauld, G68 0LS, with remote attendance available where required.
