About Us

Glasgow Science Centre is Scottish Charity and a unique 5-star visitor attraction with a vision for a Scotland where all people feel empowered through learning and engagement with science to make positive differences in their lives, communities and society.

Our mission is to inspire people of all ages to explore and understand the world around them, and to discover and enjoy science. We have been delivering interactive science experiences to schools, families, and community audiences for over 20 years, in-house, online and through outreach and we are dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of science to our nation’s wellbeing, economy, and society.

The Role

We are recruiting for up to three new Trustees to help us grow our influence and impact across Scotland. We are also recruiting for one independent member of our Audit Committee who should be a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland, or of the UK Chartered Institute of Public Finance Accountants or of equivalent bodies of other countries. Whether you are an experienced trustee or hoping to take your first step at board level, we would like to hear from you.

Trustees play a key role in shaping strategy and acting as ambassadors for the organisation. In addition, Trustees will monitor financial and operational activities, supporting and challenging the Management Team to deliver the organisation’s mission and vision.

Glasgow Science Centre welcome applications from a wide range of sectors and are keen to hear from those who are passionate about science and widening participation. You will be committed to a charitable role where you can use your experience to influence the strategic direction of the organisation to better serve our communities and address business needs.

Board Members will also be expected to act as advocates for the organisation in the wider community of Glasgow and beyond. As an ambassador you will value and respect diversity and promote an ethos of equality and inclusion.

The Board meets four times a year at Glasgow Science Centre, 50 Pacific Quay, Glasgow. Some Trustees also represent the Board on sub-committees and working groups, which meet two or three times a year. Trustees will not be remunerated, but reasonable out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed.
