Apex Scotland is looking for new members who can bring enthusiasm and experience to the Board of a dynamic and hard working third sector organisation. For over thirty years Apex Scotland has been a leading provider of innovative and effective services to people who have criminal convictions or who are at risk of getting them, with a specific focus on developing work readiness and entry to employment.
Due to the retiral of several Board members, having served their permitted term, we are now looking to recruit some exceptional people to help us move our strategy forward.
With a head office in Edinburgh and offices across the country, Apex is involved in policy and practice in partnership with both national and local Government and other third sector entities. We operate in communities, schools, and prisons, providing work opportunities through social enterprise and offering training, early intervention, mentoring and employment support to over five thousand individuals every year.
The Board is responsible for setting strategy, governance oversight and supporting the aims and objectives of Apex Scotland. Trustees meet on average four times a year as a full Board and there is also an expectation of some committee work in support of specific governance areas. Board members join with staff to attend our annual national conference and enjoy networking at our Annual Lecture, held every September in Edinburgh.
We are particularly seeking potential members who can bring skills and experience in charity law, marketing and PR, IT, the Scottish justice system and HR/staff development although other relevant assets would be welcomed. Apex Scotland is recognised as an equal opportunity employer and would welcome applicants from under-represented groups.
This is an unpaid voluntary role. Whilst our head office is in Edinburgh, we have a presence throughout Scotland and would welcome applications from across the country. Travel expenses can be paid for attendance at Apex Scotland events and meetings.
