The Heritage Trust Network trustees stand outside on a lawn dappled with sunlight, they are comprised of 11 people, stood in two rows, smiling towards the viewer. In the background there is a park bench and trees.

Heritage Trust Network is seeking a new Scotland Trustee for its Board of Directors. This is a unique opportunity to join the leadership of the fastest growing organisation in community-led heritage regeneration.

The Network now brings together over 800 members including nearly 550 not-for-profit heritage organisations and 40 heritage businesses. We have a staff team of seven supported by our Board. You could help steer our ambitious strategy to strengthen our organisation and help our members succeed. We are recruiting a new trustee to ensure continuity, bring in new experiences and perspectives, and diversify our board.

Thanks to funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and the government heritage agencies of the four nations of the UK, the Network is going through a period of unprecedented transformation and growth. In Scotland we have recently been successful in securing three years of funding from Historic Environment Scotland for our Resilient Networks project, 2023 to 2026, also supported by the National Trust for Scotland. Our work to support community groups taking ownership of their church buildings is also a key focus and you can see the breadth of our activity on our ‘A Future for Your Church’ webpage.

Trustees are expected to attend four meetings a year (three online, one in-person) as well as the annual conference and take part in ad-hoc online meetings and email discussions in between. Board membership is not remunerated, but expenses will be fully covered.

“Becoming a member and eventually a trustee of Heritage Trust Network was like walking into a warm and friendly pub on a cold rainy night. I immediately felt welcome and supported by an amazing team who shared a similar passion and determination to preserve our heritage assets for generations to come.”
– Hopwood DePree, trustee since 2018
