Livingston James is delighted to be supporting the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) to identify new Board Trustees. With both a new Convener and a new Chief Executive this is the ideal time to get involved and help shape the future direction of the organisation.

SCVO is the membership organisation for Scotland’s charities, voluntary organisations and social enterprises. Its mission is to support people to take voluntary action to help themselves and others, whilst also bringing about social change.

With a vision for a more equal society and vibrant communities supporting, and supported by, a modern economy with active and engaged citizens, SCVO works in partnership with the voluntary sector to advance their shared values and interests.

  • Accountancy or financial management experience
