Shetland Amenity Trust is Looking to Appoint New Trustees


An opportunity exists to join the Board of Shetland Amenity Trust to shape Shetland’s heritage future.

As a Trustee for Shetland Amenity Trust, you will not only have the opportunity to shape the future of Shetland’s heritage, but also serve as an ambassador for the Trust, engaging with employees, volunteers, and local stakeholders to ensure the Trust operates in a way that benefits the community as a whole.

Set up 40 years ago and dedicated to Shetland’s heritage in all its forms, Shetland Amenity Trust is going through a transition period.  Trustees have a formal role in agreeing the strategic direction and ensuring the Trust’s finances are in good order. However, the role is broader than that and gives you the opportunity to influence how the Trust works, especially with other local interested groups.

This is an unpaid role, which is challenging, yet rewarding. We will welcome applications from anyone who has a connection to and passion for Shetland’s heritage.

If you would like to have an informal chat about the role, please notify us of your interest at, or phone the main number on 01595 694688, and Alison Moncrieff (Chair of the Board of Trustees) or Hazel Sutherland (Chief Executive) will be happy to provide you with more information.


An application form is available at  The closing date for applications is 31st May 2024, with interviews held in during June.
