We wish to recruit Trustees who are passionate about The Heart’s work and aims. We seek individuals who can help us take The Heart from ‘meanwhile use’ to a full opening. We are looking for trustees with expertise and skills that will help us to grow The Heart and to achieve longer-term sustainability. We are particularly interested in hearing from people with experience in Finance.

Our Trustees will uphold and represent our purpose, vision, values and mission in a personal and professional capacity. Trustees are accountable for the overall strategic leadership and direction of HoNC, ensuring the organisation is professionally run, manages risk, operates strict financial controls, and acts in accordance with its aims and objectives. In addition, Trustees will take on leadership for one strategic theme or facet of the organisation. 

Given that the organisation is in early stages of its development, ideal candidates will have a flexible approach with can-do attitudes, strong networking skills, as well as expert knowledge and experience necessary to support The Heart in achieving its aims. 

Our ideal Trustee will: 

· Have at least 3 years’ professional experience in profit or not-for-profit management, or facilities management. 

· Have effective communication skills and willingness to participate actively in discussion. 

· Have a strong personal commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion. 

· Have enthusiasm for our vision and mission.

We are keen to appoint individuals living in our area of benefit, which stretches beyond the immediate area of Newhaven, from the edge of Leith to the edge of Granton and inland to Ferry Road, although this is not essential. 

We are committed to increasing the diversity of our Board and warmly encourage applications from under-represented groups including BAME candidates or those with disabilities. 

These posts are not remunerated. Previous trustee experience is not essential
