Member of East Park Board of Directors

East Park is seeking suitably qualified and skilled people to join its Board of Directors in an exciting and challenging period.

Position overview

East Park provides excellent, person centred residential care and education to children and young people with complex additional support needs, including Autism Spectrum Disorder, physical and sensory impairments, and challenging behavior. With the young person at the centre and working with external partners, our work focuses on seeking innovative, personalised approaches which enable each individual to reach his or her maximum potential.

Established in 1874, East Park’s services have developed considerably and we are now entering an exciting new phase. In 2012 East Park received a very positive joint Inspection Report from Education Scotland & the Care Inspectorate and retained Accreditation from the National Autism Society. At the most recent Care Inspectorate visit in 2014, East Park was awarded an “excellent” grading for the quality of care and support.

To help support the organisation going forward East Park seeks skilled, qualified and motivated individuals to join the Board of Directors. As a non-executive member of the Board you’ll play a central role in developing strategy, monitoring quality and governance and supporting the provision of education and care services.

East Park seeks individuals who possess strategic vision, good independent judgement, and have the ability to work as part of a diverse team. We are keen to hear from you if you have high level experience in:

  • education, health and/or social care – policy and delivery
  • financial planning, accountancy or fundraising
  • estates projects

Above all, East Park seeks people who share our values and wish to support vulnerable young people in fulfilling their potential.

The Board meets around 10 times per year for 2-3 hours on a weekday. Although the role is non-remunerated reasonable expenses will be reimbursed with training provided.
