Scotland's leading youth hostel organisation is looking for new board members who can inspire young people to experience the country at its best.

Hostelling Scotland, a not for profit charity that provides hostelling accommodation throughout Scotland, is looking for new trustees.

It is particularly keen to hear from people with experience in property, finance and IT.

It said that previous board experience is not required as training will be provided, and Hostelling Scotland believes this would be a great opportunity for anyone wishing to take their first steps in charity governance.

The organisation is keen to receive applications from as wide a range of talented people as possible, irrespective of their religion or belief, gender, age, gender identity, disability, sexual orientation, ethnic origin, political belief, relationship status or caring responsibilities.

Margo Paterson, CEO of Hostelling Scotland, said: "Hostelling Scotland is open to all. We are committed to inclusion and diversity, and we want our board of trustees to be representative of the wide range of talented people we have in the communities we serve throughout Scotland.

"We value greatly the benefits of having different points of view and experiences on our board. We welcome applications from first time trustees and highly motivated individuals across all age groups and backgrounds.

"We are particularly keen to hear from anyone with experience in property, finance, and IT. If you have the enthusiasm and drive to help shape the future of hostelling in Scotland, we would love to hear from you.’’

To express an interest and receive a nomination pack and application form, email: companysecretary@hostellingscotland.org.uk. Completed application forms need to be completed by March 8.
