Trustee vacancies

Trustee (2 POSITIONS AVAILABLE)

Join our fresh and talented board at an exciting phase of our organisations’ growth - you can help lead the strategic development of one of Dundee’s most promising new charities!

We would particularly welcome applications from candidates who are young people with lived experience of mental health and wellbeing challenges, and these roles are reserved for women and non-binary people at this time.

The Details

Feeling Strong is an exciting Dundee-based charity with the ambition to improve the lives of young people living with mental health and wellbeing challenges by fostering the skills, confidence and aspirations they need to flourish. Our services are designed by young people, delivered by young people for the benefit of young people, and we believe that this youth-led/peer-led approach is our biggest asset in tackling issues around mental health and wellbeing. We support stable recovery journeys for young people, lead campaigns to tackle societal issues, develop quality resources based on our own research, and tackle the disparity they face in unemployment, underemployment and accessing opportunities like further and higher education.

Your Commitment

Whilst the Trustee Board meets for formal meetings 7 times a year, successful candidates will be expected to contribute to the organisation more widely, taking part in fundraisers, external events, strategic planning and advising the staff team when needed. The average contribution expected of Trustees is around one hour a week.

Work-related travel costs will be reimbursed.

Applying

Training and induction will be provided, and we expect the candidate to develop skills once in post, but we are looking for candidates with any of the following experience:

  • Governance and previous board experience

  • Finance and accounting

  • Law and legislation

  • Entrepreneurship and Business Development

To apply for this opportunity send a copy of your C.V. along with a cover letter to apply@feelingstrong.co.uk. Please read the Job Description attached below for further information and if you have any other questions then please do not hesitate to get in touch.

The closing date for applications is 28/10/20, with interviews to take place on the 04/11/20.
