Do you have a passion for Scotland's cultural heritage and a desire to share your skills with the National Library of Scotland?
We are seeking a new Chair of our Board of Trustees to lead our ambitious plans for the future.
The National Library is a place for inspiration, exploration and enjoyment. As one of the leading national libraries in Europe, we create opportunities for people to participate in Scotland's rich cultural life and to engage with their heritage.
As guardian of the published and recorded memory of Scotland, our aim is to open up and share the collections locally and globally, to enrich lives through learning, research and discovery, engaging with all communities throughout Scotland.
The new Chair will champion the delivery of 'Reaching People', our new strategy, and lead the Board into the centenary anniversary of the Library in 2025. They will have the drive to inspire the organisation, guide strategic decision-making, represent the Library in the public arena, and enhance fundraising activities.
The successful applicant will have a public profile in Scotland, be a confident and engaging communicator with the capacity to give the role the time commitment required. They will have experience of serving on a Board in a context of organisational change, including the use of digital technology to reach new audiences and communities.
