Pilton Community Health Project is a fast changing organisation which has been working with local people to overcome health inequalities in north Edinburgh for more nearly 30 years. We are currently recruiting motivated and dedicated people to join our Board of Directors. We value people’s life experience as well as their qualifications and are looking to achieve a good balance on our Board. Its an exciting time for us, we are revisiting our vision and if you were to join us, you would have a real opportunity to shape the direction of our work for the next 30 years!
We are particularly keen to recruit people who live locally and want to make a difference to people’s health in the area.
If you are interested call Project Manager, Jen Richards on 0131 551 1671 to find out more about what it would involve. Have a look at our website and facebook page to find out more about what we do and what goes on in the area.
Being a director is one of the most challenging and rewarding roles anyone can volunteer to take on.
The role of the Board is to lead the organisation – by setting the vision for the organisation and running it in a way that will achieve these aims.
The challenges are many. Some people find the legal responsibilities hard to understand; others struggle with the jargon, or feel that they are not really making a difference. But the rewards are that your time, effort and commitment really do make all the difference to our organisation and the services we provide to the community. None of it would be possible without the Board.
The Board is made up of people who live locally and bring their knowledge and experience of living in the area to Board decisions and people with specific skills or knowledge (e.g. finance, employment law) that will help us run the organisation.

The Board of Directors are elected once a year at the Annual General Meeting.
