About Moray Wellbeing Hub:
The Moray Wellbeing Hub CIC is a dynamic and innovative organisation that is committed to empowering mental wellbeing in Moray and beyond. Our USP is that we are peer-led, everyone at all levels of the organization is empowered to use not only their professional skills but to harness the learning they hold as humans navigating life’s challenges. We believe that mental health is a fundamental human right, and we are on a mission to ensure that every individual in Moray can access the resources and support they need to thrive. We do this through a strong value set based on mutual peer support, delivering partnership activities such as training, awareness raising, supporting groups and individuals, as well as through setting up physical and virtual ‘safe’ spaces where people can share support and signposting.
Position: Non-Executive Director
As a key figure in our organization, you will play a vital role in steering our vision and strategy to achieve our goals of mental wealth for all in Moray.

Governance & Financial Oversight: While candidates from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply, finance and business knowledge and experience will be a valuable asset. You will be collaborating on strategic finance and reviewing periodical accounts, funding approach, resource allocation, and ensuring financial sustainability and legal compliance for our social enterprise.
