Job Role : We are currently looking to add to our current Board through the appointment of a new Treasurer as well as Board Trustee roles. Ideally, we would prefer applications from those who already have some experience of serving on a Board, but if you donít, we would still like to hear from you if you have the desire and enthusiasm to take on a new challenge. In order to be considered, you must have experience of working at board level or at a senior management level, as well as specialist knowledge in one or more of the following areas; governance, finance, HR, IT, income generation / fund raising, marketing & PR, strategic planning and performance / quality management. The roles are rewarding and you would play an important part in developing our strategy and vision, to help victims and witnesses take control and rebuild their lives in the aftermath of crime. A sound business and commercial acumen is important. In addition, an understanding of the principles which govern Scottish charities or the not-for-profit sector would be useful but is not essential. For the Treasurer role, ideally you will be a qualified accountant and / or have significant experience in charity accounting and an understanding of financial planning and forecasting.

Organisation Profile : Victim Support Scotland is the leading national charity providing free, confidential help and support to people affected by crime in Scotland.
