Staf, (the Scottish Throughcare and Aftercare Forum) is the only national membership organisation in Scotland working with care experienced young people and the professionals who support them, with the vision of creating a country where the wellbeing and success of young people leaving care is indistinguishable from that of their peers in the general population. 

Our current Board of Directors has a wealth of experience and knowledge of the sector, and bring passion and commitment to supporting Staf in making our vision a reality. Our leadership team are now looking to bring additional skillset and experience to the Board, specifically with the remit for oversight of our financial reporting to the Board.

You will have a financial qualification and/or relevant expertise in charity finance.

Experience of grant funding and fund accounting would be helpful. You will have the same legal duties as all other Directors. Your primary role is to oversee and support the CEO running the financial operation on behalf of the Board and to report to the Board as part of its governance responsibilities.

In particular we want to continue to have the experience and voice of care leavers on our Board.  If you have skills and experience in any of the above areas and you want to help Staf to continue influencing policy and practice, create platforms for care leavers and practitioners to have their voices heard, and offer opportunities for networking, collaboration and sharing good practice – then please let us know.

Please send a covering letter (maximum 2 sides of A4) and CV to [email protected] detailing what you can bring to the Staf Board, and what motivates you to get involved. 

Closing date for applications is 4th January at midnight.

Interviews will be held January.

Please note that this position is non-remunerative and asks for a commitment of approximately one day per month including four full Board meetings per year and participation in our Finance & HR Sub Group and Board Development and Strategy sessions.

For an informal discussion about this role, please contact Jo Derrick, Staf’s CEO, by telephone on 0141 465 7511 or email [email protected].
