Whether it’s starting out, or the next leg of your public appointments journey, SEStran would encourage everyone interested in transport across the South-East of Scotland to apply for 7 vacancies on our Board. If you have experience of transport, personally or professionally, in the South East of Scotland and/or the skills to play an important role in making the South East of Scotland transport network, safe, sustainable and inclusive, we want you to apply for a role as a Board Member of SEStran.
The South East of Scotland Transport Partnership (SEStran) is the statutory Regional Transport Partnership for the South East of Scotland. SEStran encompasses eight local authorities: City of Edinburgh, Clackmannanshire, East Lothian, Falkirk, Fife, Midlothian, Scottish Borders and West Lothian. Within the partnership area there is a huge diversity of transportation issues, from urban congestion to rural public transport and from active travel to major air and sea links. SEStran aims to address these issues and work towards a more sustainable and efficient transport network. SEStran contributes to a varied range of transport projects and events as well as partnership working with various organisations.
We would like to hear from people who could bring a passion for making a difference to all users of every mode of transport to make a major contribution to the South East of Scotland between 2018-2022. We would welcome applications from anyone who believes they could make a strong contribution, particularly from groups currently under-represented on Scotland’s public bodies, such as women, disabled people, ethnic minorities and people aged under 50.
SEStran has committed to a 50/50 balance of non-executive members by 2020 and sought to work with currently under-represented groups to encourage greater participation in public life and representation on public boards. We are proactively working to implement our new Board Diversity Succession Plan and to promote to all under-represented groups the opportunities to start or continue your public board journey with SEStran. This helps us to meet our voluntary commitments to the CIHT Diversity and Inclusion Charter, Disability Confident scheme and our Stonewall Scotland Diversity Champion programme membership.
So, whether it’s the start or next leg of your journey in public life, we would welcome all to apply to SEStran and help us deliver for the South East of Scotland a sustainable, safe and inclusive transport network and services for the South East of Scotland.
