Opportunity: Bothy Project call out for trustees

Bothy Project are seeking dynamic and motivated people to participate in the next chapter of Bothy Project’s mission by joining our board.

In the next year Bothy Project’s network of residency spaces and partnerships with communities will grow, helping us ensure creativity is valued and Scotland’s diverse landscapes understood and respected. Active since 2011, Bothy Project gained charity status in 2017 and established its trading arm Bothy Stores. Now is the moment to build on our innovative model and begin the next chapter of our evolution.

We are looking for people with expertise in the following areas to get involved in this journey by becoming trustees:

  • Environmental sustainability
  • Rural development and tourism
  • Land knowledge and law
  • Charity financing
  • National and local government
  • Equalities, diversity and inclusion

No previous board experience is necessary as training will be given. Board meetings are held four times a year and last two hours. Three of the four meetings will take place online, with one in-person meeting planned. As a registered charity the role of trustee is unpaid, although we are able to reimburse reasonable travel and subsistence expenses.

Bothy Project welcomes applications from prospective trustees based in Scotland, the UK or abroad, irrespective of gender, disability, age, race or ethnicity. We are committed to equality, diversity, fairness and inclusion across all our work.

To learn more about this unique opportunity contact Lesley Young, lesley@bothyproject.com (Bothy Project’s Director) for an informal discussion or complete the expression of interest form on our website: https://www.bothyproject.com/board/.

Deadline: 31 May 2023
