Would you like the opportunity to develop your experience in the community sector?
Do you live, work or are well connected in the south east of Glasgow?
Do you support our aims to build a community across the south east of Glasgow which is welcoming, inclusive, and actively anti-racist?
We’re looking for new people to join the South East Integration Network board of trustees.
In this role, you will help shape the direction of the network – and support SEIN to achieve its aims; connecting SEIN members, and furthering community integration activity in the south east of Glasgow (read Our Mission).
We would welcome people with the following experience:
- financial experience / managing basic accounts
- understanding of the third sector in Scotland / charity management
- lived experience of migration in to the local area
- none of the above / no experience on a board (the main criteria for joining is your enthusiasm for furthering the work that we do)
Time commitment is a big question for most people when thinking about joining a board. We hope that the time you give to SEIN will be rewarding and beneficial to you, however, we will do our best to make sure the role can work around your life, work and other commitments.
We would like the SEIN board to reflect the diversity of the network, and welcome interest and applications from people from all ages, stages and backgrounds. If you are interested but feel you have specific barriers to joining, please let us know so we can talk about how we can address these and make it possible for you.
We have signed the Equality Action Pledge, and are committed to fulfilling this.
Please get in touch if you would like to ask any questions, or have a chat about this opportunity & how it could work for you.

“Being on the SEIN board is my first board experience. It is a great opportunity to work with warm welcoming individuals who are always looking out for you and want the best for you.”
– Angie Mwafulirwa (SEIN Board Member)
“The SEIN board has given me opportunities for new learning, and a greater understanding of my local community. It’s given me a huge appreciation for the third sector and the passion and professionalism and resilience in the face of much potential uncertainty. I’m humbled by this after working in public sector all my life.”
– Karen Krawczyk (SEIN Board Member)
