Trustee recruitment

Applications to join our volunteer Board of Trustees have now closed - the recruitment information will remain available until the process is complete. 

sparqs is currently looking for people who are committed to what we do and the values we hold, to join our volunteer Board of Trustees to support the governance and strategic development of sparqs.

We would love to hear from candidates who have not taken on a Trustee role before as well as those with previous experience. A board benefits from valuable technical skills such as HR, Legal, and marketing but board members do not have to be senior professionals in such fields. Having a good knowledge of some of the issues a small charity might need to deal with in these areas and appropriate understanding of risk and where to seek help are equally valuable. Applicants could be early in their career as an HR or finance professional, for example, alongside having experience of being a student representative.

Working in a diverse sector and with diverse students, we are keen to receive applications from people of all backgrounds and with all different kinds of life experiences.

How to apply

See the Trustee recruitment page for further details, including how to apply. 

Please note that the Role Profile previously noted that applicants were required to live in the United Kingdom.  This information was incorrect and the Role Profile has now been updated.  Apologies for any confusion caused - international applications are welcomed. 

Closing date: 12noon on Monday 12th December 2022.

Interviews will be held during week commencing 9th January 2023, in Edinburgh.


If you have any queries, please contact Nicola Cameron, Business Manager at nicola.cameron@sparqs.ac.uk or call 07785 626 159.
