Recruitment of Trustee to The Junction

Unremunerated but reasonable expenses will be paid

The Junction is an award-winning organisation that works with young people aged 12-21, primarily in North-East Edinburgh, to support their health and wellbeing by helping them explore and make their life changes.

Our vision is “For all young people to reach their full potential”

Established in 2005, the Junction understands the various aspects of young people’s lives are interrelated. We take a holistic approach to ensure they are able to access our services in a safe and confidential space without having to fit themselves to defined issues or problems. We maintain a wider outlook, rather than focusing solely on the issue presented, to see the whole person and the different factors influencing their life. This way, no matter who walks through the Junction’s door or engages with us, whatever question or scenario they bring with them, we’ll respond in a way that’s helpful to them.

Having recently moved to new and enlarged premises, we are going through an exciting period of organisational change and have a vacancy on our Board for a Trustee.

A strong and active Board of Trustees is essential so we can build on recent successes and continue to move forward. We are looking for a new member to provide more strength and depth to the Board to ensure the Junction continues to develop. Potential trustees should have the ability to challenge and put forward new ideas; strong communication skills with the ability to relate to and communicate effectively with people at all levels.

We are particularly interested in candidates who have evidence of successfully working in a governance, financial, fundraising or a human resource role in an environment with a vision and values in alignment with our own.

The role will involve at least 6 board meetings per annum and as well as 2 ‘away days’ providing time and space for the organisation to focus on the longer-term strategy. Meetings take place at The Junction, 82-86 Great Junction Street, Edinburgh, EH6 5LL and last approximately 2 hours .
