Scottish Youth Theatre Board Member Call Out

Scottish youth theatre is inviting expressions of interest to join our board at a pivotal period of the company’s development.

We are seeking up to five new Board members to strengthen and diversify our current Board and succession plan for 2025 when our two longest serving members will have fulfilled the maximum tenure. This includes our current Chair who is open to discuss the role of Chair with individuals who may have a particular interest in the position.

These are unpaid roles with reasonable expenses reimbursed. Previous Board experience is not essential and training will be offered if required.  

First and foremost, we want to recruit Board members who are committed to the work and ambitions of the company and who will meaningfully contribute to our governance and strategic development. We particularly welcome expressions of interest from people with knowledge and experience in areas of: 

  • Equity and inclusion
  • Finance  
  • Environment  
  • Marketing / PR  
  • Legal  

In our commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion we want our Board to reflect Scotland’s diverse communities and therefore particularly welcome interest from: 

  • Black and People of Colour 
  • Disabled people 
  • People under the age of 35 
  • Those based or with a strong connection to areas of Scotland outside the Central Belt 

Registration of interest has now closed. We will be in touch with all applicants to inform them of next steps in January 2024.
