Vacancy Description / Summary

We are currently seeking a Trustee with experience of working in a senior leadership role in education, ideally within the local authority or voluntary sector. For more information please refer to the Job Description and the Trustee Background Paper available on our website at

There is no remuneration attached to the role but out-of-pocket expenses will be reimbursed.

Closing date: 31st July 2018
Interview date: To be confirmed

Application packs are available from Harmeny by telephone on 0131 449 3938, by email at, or online at
