Opportunity: Craft Scotland board members – Finance

Join Craft Scotland’s Board to support the development of an inspiring and creative sector.

Passionate about Scottish contemporary craft? Join Craft Scotland’s Board to support the development of an inspiring and creative sector.

In this Board recruitment round, Craft Scotland is particularly looking for an individual with experience in finance to join the Board and become a member of the Finance and Remuneration Committee. This may include those with professional qualifications in the area of finance or those with experience in managing the finances of a business or charity.

Relevant experience includes:
  • Financial management, preferably with formal accountancy qualifications
  • Entrepreneurial income generation, commercial or trading activity
  • Fundraising and philanthropy
  • Individuals with CEO or Senior Finance Manager experience at a similar scale or large organisation

The Craft Scotland board is responsible for shaping strategy, monitoring progress and ensuring robust and compliant operation. Together with the director and senior staff we regularly review the programme, explore the wider landscape and jointly develop new strategy and plans.

We are keen to welcome people who can bring fresh perspectives, are passionate about craft, creativity or design, and can help us deliver our ambitions.

We are seeking people with lived experience – being Black, Asian, Mixed Heritage and/or a Person of Colour, refugee, d/Deaf, LGBTQIA+, under 50, or living with a disability. Our current Board and team are majority white, cisgender and non-disabled, and we believe our work will be stronger with input from people who bring different perspectives, backgrounds and experiences. No-one is expected to represent specific groups, but to bring their full self, life experience and unique lens.

We can find ways to enable participation, including reimbursing appropriate travel expenses, considering caring responsibilities when scheduling, and using online video or conference calling to minimise time, cost and carbon emissions.

We will support you to participate as a board member whether you are based in Scotland, the UK or elsewhere.

Interested but not quite sure?

We also welcome informal conversations with anyone who would prefer to take a little longer to get to know us. Perhaps you would like to take some time to build your confidence, develop your understanding of board roles or the organisation/sector?

Any questions?

If you have questions or would like a brief exploratory chat before applying, please contact:
