Arkbound Publishing are looking for two trustees based in Scotland to help oversee the development of their charity. The Arkbound Foundation seeks to improve diversity and access within publishing and media – supporting people from disadvantaged backgrounds to get published, whether through literature or journalism.
The Arkbound Foundation principally works with people who have experienced social exclusion, including those who have faced homelessness, imprisonment and discrimination by virtue of their background, circumstance or personal characteristics. Our ethos is about empowerment, positive transformation and accessibility.
This role provides the opportunity to make a big difference to a small organisation, where you can input into operations and help provide directions to ensure the charity meets its objectives. Ideally you would be based within travelling distance of Glasgow, where our office is, but any person who lives or works in Scotland can be considered. You do not necessarily need knowledge or experience of publishing or journalism, just the ability to volunteer for a few hours a month. The role is flexible so you can fit it around your other commitments.

Our Glasgow office is based at the Rogart Street Campus building. The Bridgeton Train Station is about a 5 minute walk away.
