Grampian Women’s Aid (GWA) is recruiting Trustees to join our Board.  GWA is a charity based in Aberdeen, with over 45 years’ experience providing information, support and safe accommodation for women and children experiencing domestic abuse across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire.

The role of Trustee is a unique voluntary opportunity for women from diverse backgrounds who have expertise, time and are committed to making a real difference to the lives of women and children who have experienced domestic abuse.

As a member of GWA Board, you will play a key role in the strategy of GWA and overseeing its governance to ensure it can continue to provide high quality services to women, children and young people across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire.  Your role may will also include engagement with our staff team providing support, information and partnership working for strategic planning and development of the organisation. You don’t need to be an expert in domestic abuse but have an understanding of the impact it has on women and children and be committed to GWA’s vision and values.

We would particularly like to recruit professionals in a current or recent decision-making role in the following areas:

  • Legal
  • Business/Charitable Finance/Accounting
  • Charitable Governance
  • Fundraising
  • Housing Management

GWA are committed to representing the diversity of our service users on our Board and welcome applications from all women. Grampian Women’s Aid strives to be an Equal Opportunities Employer. Women only need apply under Schedule 9 (Part 1) of the Equality Act 2010. The role will also be subject to PVG scheme membership.

The Board currently meet monthly via Microsoft Teams or in person at our registered office, therefore although applicant location in the locality of Aberdeen/Aberdeenshire may be preferred but is not essential.  The frequency and the method of meeting will continue to be reviewed regularly to meet the needs of the organisation.   Board members are also invited to join one of our sub-committees to accelerate progress on important topics such as fundraising or strategy, driving forward key actions between Board meetings.  Although this fantastic volunteering opportunity is unpaid, travel expenses are available for Board members to attend meetings.

As well as benefitting from being part of a talented and supportive team of Trustee’s, you will also receive a comprehensive induction plan and ongoing personal development and support.
