Trustees

Welcome

Dear Applicant

Thank you for your interest in joining the Board of Directors with The Mungo Foundation. I hope that you will find this microsite informative and useful in supporting your decision to apply.

The Mungo Foundation is one of the most diverse providers of social care and support for vulnerable people in West and Central Scotland. We are one of the largest employers in Glasgow with an annual turnover of £16.5 million. At any one time we will typically run 40 different types of projects, delivering support to over 1,500 individuals, their families and communities.

We have been fully independent from the Archdiocese of Glasgow since June 2020, and remain committed to justice for all and enduring values of life justice and community.  At the start of 2021 a whole new Board, including a new Chair, were appointed marking a new chapter in their history. We want to build on the legacy of social justice that has been a fundamental element of our board governance, and we seek additional Trustees to help the Board govern and lead the organisation on its next chapter.

The Board are responsible for the overall governance and wellbeing of the organisation and we are looking for exceptional individuals who share our values and our commitment to quality and excellence as well as our passion to improve and enrich the lives of the vulnerable people we support. As such, we are looking to speak to a wide range of potential candidates from a variety of backgrounds who can bring innovation, drive and a modern strategic approach to the Board. We will be paying particular attention to equality and diversity through the recruitment process and welcome applications from across all sectors and sections of society.

We are at a very exciting stage in our journey, with a focus on the continued personalisation of service, fair work and employee collaboration and sustainability through the development and refinement of contemporary and evolving models of support.

I very much look forward to hearing from you.
