Join our Board of Trustees

Glasgow City Heritage Trust is recruiting for three Trustee positions on our Board of Trustees.

Glasgow City Heritage Trust is an independent charity and grant funder. Through our grant programmes we enable projects which promote the understanding, appreciation and conservation of Glasgow’s historic built environment.

An opportunity has arisen for three Trustees to join the GCHT’s Board. The roles are unremunerated and will require a commitment to attend quarterly Board meetings and additional sub-committee(s).

Applications are sought from enthusiastic and innovative individuals with business expertise at a senior level and a passion for Glasgow’s historic environment. We encourage applications from all backgrounds, communities and industries, and are committed to having a Board of Directors that is made up of diverse skills, experiences and abilities. We actively encourage BAME and disabled applicants and value the positive impact that difference has on our Board. 

If you feel you possess skills that would complement those of the existing Board, send a CV and covering letter explaining reasons for your interest by email to our Director Torsten Haak, with subject line “Trustee”:  

Closing date is Friday, 30th October 2020. 

Company registered in Scotland No SC318618 & Scottish Charity No SC038640

Additional information:

  • Trustee meetings are held four times a year in March, June, September and December, always on a Wednesday afternoon for around two hours. Due to COVID-19 restrictions these meetings are currently held via Zoom. Eventually they might revert back to our premises in Glasgow’s Merchant City. The AGM is held directly after the September Board.
  • Trustees are expected to join at least one Sub-Committee, either Finance, Grants or Outreach. These Committees meet quarterly two or three weeks before each Board meeting on Wednesday afternoons for two hours.
  • Each year, usually in September on a Wednesday, the Trustees and Employees hold a joint Strategic Away Day usually at a previously grant aided property or unusual venue in Glasgow to discuss the strategic direction for the next year followed by some external training and/or site visits to grant aided properties. This could be a 10am to 3-4 pm event. NB: This year’s event is scheduled for December 2020 via Zoom.
