· Develop direction, strategy and planning
· Ensure the organisation has the structure and resources for its work
· Establish policies and procedures to govern organisational activity, including guidance for the Board and staff
· Establish systems for reporting and monitoring

The Marie Trust is a charity with an excellent and established reputation for its multi-faceted and progressive services delivery within the homelessness, criminal justice and addictions sectors in Glasgow. The dedicated, experienced and highly skilled Board, staff and volunteers of The Marie Trust work tirelessly for and with some of the most disadvantaged individuals in Glasgow, many of whom exist in total destitution.
The charity has a centrally located operational base, providing vital holistic intervention and counselling services, a fully equipped training café, and several co-located outreaches, including a founding part in the award-winning CAN initiative, with a thriving charity shop based on Paisley Road West, and a large community of volunteers that support all areas of The Marie Trust’s mission.
The Marie Trust is now at an exciting juncture in its development, with a new Chief Executive in place and seven new Board members with a variety of skills and experiences ready to start their post from April 2019, we are at the perfect juncture to welcome in a new Chair of the Board to lead on the formation of a new strategy fit for what will be a crucial but challenging period ahead.
To fulfil our ambitious strategy, we are therefore seeking an experienced Chair to lead the new Board of Directors and to work in partnership with the Chief Executive to set the new direction and strategy for The Marie Trust. Experience and understanding of the Third Sector generally and of homelessness, criminal justice, addictions would be a bonus but is not essential, as full introductory and continuous training is given to all Board members.
All new Board positions will be co-opted initially and co-opted again or elected at the next AGM.
