Vacancy – 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.

Opportunities are available to join our Board of Trustees in their strategic management of the Trust.

This is a fantastic opportunity for those looking to either build good CV-enhancing experience or simply devote some free time to make a valuable contribution to the running of a friendly, impactful and highly regarded charity.

Applications are sought from enthusiastic and innovative individuals with a passion for Glasgow’s historic environment. It would be particularly valuable to have new board members with FundraisingConservation Accredited Architecture or Surveying, Property Law or Accountancy expertise. Although we are primarily looking for experience in these areas, we welcome interest from all backgrounds and experience.

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 are actively encourage BAME and disabled applicants and value the positive impact that difference has on our Board.

Time commitment:

  • 6-8 meetings per year.
  • Board meetings are held four times a year in March, June, September and December, always on a Wednesday afternoon for around two hours at our offices on Bell Street, Glasgow or via Zoom. The AGM is held directly after the September Board.
  • Trustees are expected to join at least one Sub-Committee, either Audit & Remuneration, Grants or Business Development. These Committees meet quarterly two or three weeks before each Board meeting on Wednesday afternoons for two hours, at our offices on Bell Street, Glasgow or via Zoom.
  • 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.
