The Scottish Independent Advocacy Alliance (the SIAA) promotes, supports and defends the principles and practice of independent advocacy across Scotland. We do this by:

  • Providing a strong national voice for independent advocacy organisations.
  • Supporting the growth of existing independent advocacy organisations.
  • Promoting the development of new independent advocacy organisations.
  • Encouraging existing advocacy organisations towards independence.

To allow us to continue to develop as an organisation and to expand our reach, SIAA is looking to recruit a number of Directors to the board.

As a member of the Board, you will set the long-term strategic direction for SIAA as well as provide advice and guidance to the other Directors and the Executive Team in your specialist field. You, along with your fellow board members, will ensure that performance is monitored and managed through internal controls and delegation and approve key strategies and policies to allow SIAA to achieve its objectives.

Being a board member can be incredibly rewarding and support you in your personal and professional development.  SIAA is at a pivotal point in its development and there are many opportunities to extend our reach and influence. Although SIAA is looking for specific experience and skills to augment the board, we are also looking for diversity of thought to challenge the organisation to deliver even better outcomes for our members and ultimately the people our members support.

To support SIAA, we wish to recruit board members with experience in the following:

  • Independent Advocacy policy
  • Legal, finance and employment
  • Business skills
  • Stakeholder engagement
