A replacement is being sought for the long-standing chair of the National Lottery Community Fund’s Scottish committee.

Maureen McGinn, who has served in the role for eight years, will leave at the end of her term in November.

The committee is now looking for someone with a “deep and informed” understanding of Scotland’s third sector to take over the position.

Applicants will be expected to engage with the fund’s strategic objectives, oversee decisions on major funding applications and act as the fund’s Scottish ambassador.

They will also have a spot as the UK board member for Scotland and will be expected to attend quarterly meetings in London.

The initial appointment lasts for four years, with an additional four years possible if agreed upon by Scottish and UK ministers. The role has an annual salary of £24,000.

As the fund is a UK non-departmental public body, the appointment being is run through the UK government’s appointments process.

Anyone interested in applying can see a full breakdown of the position on the UK Government website.
