Board Director – Volunteer Vacancies

Are you passionate about equality? Interested in Education, Community Learning, Volunteering or the Charity sector? Looking for a new opportunity?

We are looking for people to join our passionate and committed team of non-executive directors. We’re especially looking for people aged 18-30. You don’t need to have had experience of being on a board before, as we provide training and support.

We’re running 2 information sessions on Zoom for people aged 18-30 to find out more and talk to current board members. Please register below:

  • Our vision is of a fair society where disabled people and carers have an equal opportunity to learn, participate and achieve their potential
  • Our mission is to influence change and provide personalised learning, befriending, advice and information services

Our work is really important. We are the only organisation in Scotland offering personalised, community and home based support to learn with the option of accreditation. We also run Scotland’s only specialist post school education helpline for disabled people.

If you believe in our vision and mission, please get in touch with the Chair of Lead Scotland via Emma Whitelock, Chief Executive Officer,, 0131 228 9441. We are happy to have an informal chat on the phone about the roles, what is involved and answer any questions you may have.

Hear from our current board members in this video for Volunteers Week 2021!

What is the commitment?

Quarterly Board Meetings are held during the day, either face to face (Edinburgh, Perth) or virtually. Directors are also encouraged to participate in at least one of our quarterly sub-committees. Occasional extra meetings and travel expenses are reimbursed. 

We welcome expressions of interest from anyone who believes they can make a positive contribution to the continued growth and development of the organisation. We are particularly keen to recruit an individual with a background in fundraising or marketing or digital skills but we also seek Directors with a background of other business or interest related skills. Lead Scotland are committed to diversity and welcome expressions of interest from people of all backgrounds.
