Sacro’s Board has up to 12 Trustees, including the Chair, and they are responsible for setting the strategic direction of the organisation, safeguarding the use of resources and ensuring the highest standards of governance, management, propriety and conduct in the business of the Board.
We are currently looking for three Trustees to join our Board. The positions are not renumerated.

At present, society is facing a number of challenges which create pressures that can lead to people becoming involved in the criminal justice system. It is imperative that Sacro continues to thrive as the support we provide has never been more needed. Should you choose to become a member of our Board, you will have the opportunity to dedicate your time, skills, and experience to empowering people, giving hope and protection, and helping to build safer communities.  

Sacro is committed to inclusivity and encouraging diversity of thought, background and experience. We are looking to recruit three new board members who will ensure the effective governance of Sacro as a charity so that it meets its legal obligations, manages risks, and grows and develops its vital range of services. As a Board, we bring diverse skills, experiences, and styles,but we all share a commitment to the values, aims and goals of Sacro. We believe that everyone has the right to the opportunity for positive change and we do not judge.

Previous board experience is not a pre-requisite, and we welcome applications from candidates from all backgrounds who bring relevant experience, including lived experience and a passion to make a lasting difference. Our new Board members should be committed to our mission and organisational values and bring one or more of the following areas of expertise:

>  Knowledge of the justice sector or involvement in working with people in crisis (e.g. homelessness, domestic abuse sectors) in Scotland

>  Accountancy or strategic financial management experience

>  Business Development / Income diversification

>  Public Affairs, Public Relations and/or external communication

>  Front-line service development and delivery  

If you join us, we strongly believe that Sacro will benefit, you will benefit and most importantly the people who use our services will benefit.
