Advice Direct Scotland
Advice Direct Scotland

Charity registered in Scotland SC034473

Our mission is to connect advice and information with the people who need it. We believe technology will allow us to address the huge unmet need for help and advice in Scotland. Impartial advice should be available to everyone in Scotland, at no cost, regardless of personal circumstance. No subject matter is inconsequential, unimportant or a waste of time. Pick up the phone, ping off an email, talk to us via webchat or even send us a tweet – we are here for you whenever you need us.

We have been providing advice and information to the citizens of Scotland since 2004 and have been an independent organisation since 2019. We know that linking advice and information with the people who need it is fundamental to the success of any society.

Our innovative, multi-channel programmes move at pace, and we are looking for imaginative and unique individuals who can contribute to our programme of change.

Joining us as a Trustee will provide you with a platform to develop your existing strategic and leadership skills, learn from other members of the board and executives, and make a lasting contribution both to the people of Scotland and the staff and volunteers.

There are five formal board meetings per annum. You will also need to attend our Annual General Meeting and Annual Celebration. This will take place on September 11 in 2020. Board meetings are normally on a Tuesday afternoon, with the AGM and Celebration taking place in the late afternoon and into the evening.

We are particularly looking for candidates who have strong networks, whether this be as part of their career or with community groups. We are very proud of our diverse workforce, and are looking to improve the representation of minority groups on our board.
