Join Our Board of Trustees!

As we approach Ocean Youth Trust Scotland’s 25th anniversary, we are looking to recruit up to four new Trustees who will bring fresh ideas, enthusiasm and a willingness to help change the lives of young people from across Scotland. 

To keep us sailing in the right direction, we are looking for applicants with experience in the following fields:  

  • Law, who can support the development of our constitution and articles of association, and who can also advise us on the upcoming revised Charities Act
  • Fundraising & Corporate PR, to develop the role of the Board in our fundraising and PR work
  • Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, to ensure our work is relevant and accessible to all current, future and potential beneficiaries, particularly those from marginalised groups and those with protected characteristics

However, we recognise the value of different backgrounds and experiences, and applicants with other skill sets are welcome to apply. 

We are continually working to improve the diversity of our Board. We welcome all applications but are particularly interested in applicants from communities with protected characteristics, e.g. age, disability, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and personal status.

Applicants do not need to show previous experience in a Trustee position. Instead, we are interested to see the unique skills and experience that you can bring to the Board, and how you can support youth work on the waves. 

There is more information about the vacancies, and how to make an application, in our Board Member Information Pack
