Call for nominations to Together’s Board of Trustees

Date: 12th August 2022


Together is holding its next AGM on 20th September 2022 and are seeking to appoint two new Trustees to join the Board. We are particularly keen for applicants with skills in financial management and HR and employment support.

Together seeks trustees who have the knowledge and understanding to maintain an oversight of its activities at a strategic level, and who can contribute well informed views, constructive challenge and a commitment to best practice. A trustee’s ability to contribute in this way will often, but not always, draw on professional and/or practitioner experience at a senior level. All trustees are expected to have an expressed commitment to children’s human rights in line with Together’s vision and strategic plan and should be members of Together.

Together’s trustees are expected to demonstrate many of personal competences included in Together trustee role description and have the capacity to apply these to the direction of the organisation.

Together encourages applicants to have an informal discussion with the Director or other trustees in advance of applying. Together, in line with its Equal Opportunities and Diversity Policy, is committed to making sure that our Board of Trustees reflects the diversity of children and families across Scotland, and we particularly encourage Black and Brown people, Disabled people, and people from minoritised communities to apply. If you would like an informal discussion about standing for election as a Together trustee, please contact Christine Klien, Business Support Officer at

If you would like apply to stand for election as a Together trustee, you must complete a Trustee Nomination Form – endorsed by a Together member - and send it with an Expression of Interest (up to 150 words) and a Biography (up to 300 words) to Christine by the 12th  September so applications can be shared with Together members ahead of the AGM.

Membership of the Board is by election through Together's voting members, who have paid the full annual fee for 2022/23. Trusteeship lasts for a period of 3 years, after which Trustees can be re-elected for one further term, to a total of 6 years.  The position of Board member is unpaid.  Reasonable expenses incurred in the pursuit of Board business will be covered.
