Jubilee Scotland is an independent coalition of organisations and local groups campaigning for debt and economic justice across Scotland. Our offices are based in Edinburgh and all posts will be based there unless otherwise stated. All open vacancies and other opportunities will be posted below.
Board of Directors Members – Trustees
The Board of Directors is the voluntary management group for Jubilee Scotland. Its responsibility is: to develop the Jubilee debt campaign in Scotland; to evolve the campaign as the global situation changes; and to identify opportunities to prosecute that campaign in Scotland.
To this end, the Board does the following:
guides and supports the Jubilee Scotland office staff;
provides information and contacts to the staff and other members of the Board such that the debt campaign proceeds effectively;
passes on information and campaigning opportunities from Jubilee Scotland to other organisations and networks.
Jubilee Scotland is committed to recruiting a diverse range of Trustees and we would be delighted to hear from people with skills and experience in finance, human resources or marketing. We would also particularly welcome applications from volunteers from an accounting background who could assist our current Treasurer.
Board members do not have to be experts in the global debt crisis. What is needed is a passionate desire to learn more about that crisis, a desire to see justice done and positive experience that can be brought to the campaign. This could be, but is not limited to: contacts with other networks and organisations; resources such as finance or support in kind; professional skills and experience, etc.
The Board meets in office hours, four or five times a year, in either Edinburgh or Glasgow (consideration would be given to shifting the location of the meeting to suit the membership).
