Join our team!

Glasgow Women’s Library is expanding its team of Non-Executive Directors

Do you share our vision of a world in which women’s historical, cultural and political contributions to society are fully recognised, valued and celebrated by all? Are you committed to devoting some skills, time and energy to towards this vision? Do you have a passion for libraries, archives and museums? Do you believe in the power of learning to change lives for the better?

Glasgow Women’s Library faces an exciting and transformational period over the coming years. If you are innovative, energetic, enterprising and courageous, we would love to hear from you.

At this time, we are particularly keen to further augment our team’s existing skills and knowledge in the areas of: financial management; fundraising; legal issues; library, archive or museum management; social enterprise; entrepreneurial flair; or information technology and social media. We also particularly welcome applications from women from Black and Minority Ethnic backgrounds.

The role of Non-Executive Director is unpaid but certainly not without reward, with reimbursement of travel costs.

If you would like to join our Board of Directors, or talk to us about other ways that you can work with us to realise our vision, find out more by looking at our recruitment pack (available for download below) or email the GWL Secretary, Sue John, at
