The Edwin Morgan Trust has spent the past eight months re-visiting our missions, values, aims and visions for our future programmes. We are looking for new board members to bring their experience, skills and enthusiasm to the EMT to work on delivering this exciting new chapter.  We are actively seeking board members with lived experiences that are currently under-represented in the EMT*. We consider life experience to be a skill for this role, and will review applications with this in mind. 

We have included a recruitment pack, some insights and reflections from our current Trustees and a link to the application below.


  • Callout deadline February 11, *Deadline extended to midnight, February 14, 2022.*
  • Interviews will be held in February 2022, with a panel chaired by the current Chair of the EMT David Kinloch.
  • Time commitment, a 3-year term, up to 1 day per month (including attendance at a minimum of three meetings a year).
  • The role is unpaid, but financial assistance is possible to help reduce barriers for folk who would otherwise be unable to consider a Trustee position. Further reasonable expenses incurred in connection with your duties as a Trustee will to be reimbursed. 
  • We would like the board of Trustees to represent a range of lived experience and perspectives.  Training is available for new trustees without board experience.
  • New Trustees will be welcomed to the Edwin Morgan Trust in March 2022. 
  • Please contact Siân McIntyre at with any questions. 

*This could include people who experience racism, those who are disabled and/or neurodivergent, people who are trans, non-binary and/or queer, and people from working class/lower socio-economic backgrounds as well as those who experience other under-represented and oppressed identities. We would also like to hear from people who live and work outside Scotland’s Central Belt areas.
