Hearts & Minds seek new Trustees to join their Board


We are looking for committed individuals to expand the range of Trustee skills as well as to consolidate existing skills with an eye to succession planning. We require dynamic and motivated people who are sympathetic to the aims and objectives of Hearts & Minds to fulfil these voluntary duties. We expect Trustees to contribute actively to the Board by giving strategic direction; setting overall policy; defining goals and setting targets; evaluating performance; ensuring the charity’s effective and efficient administration and financial stability.

In addition, on the basis of a recent skills audit, we are looking for Trustees with any of the following skills/experience: financial/accounting skills, legal, third sector management, to deepen our expertise in these areas.

Trustees are expected to

  • attend Board meetings in the City Centre of Edinburgh, approximately four times per year and an annual planning day;
  • get involved in support work including fixed term projects;
  • contribute advice and support on an ad hoc basis; and
  • attend events.

All Directors volunteer their time to the charity and the role is unpaid. There is no need to have trustee experience to apply.

If you are interested, please send a letter (outlining your skills and interest in our work) and your CV to:
