WE NEED YOU! Become a Ferret director

  • Do you believe in holding power to account, sometimes irreverently?

  • Do you believe that good journalism can change things?

  • Do you think the future of journalism should be in the hands of journalists and readers, not shareholders?

This is your chance to join the board of Scotland’s leading investigative journalism outlet, The Ferret. A cooperative owned by our readers and writers, and recent winners of Team of the Year at the Scottish Press Awards, we’re looking for directors for our board who can bring new skills and perspectives to help take The Ferret to the next level in 2023.

Could that be you? We hope so!

We particularly welcome applications from people from under-represented and marginalised backgrounds including those from the Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities, disabled people, LGBT people, women.

We would really value the following skill sets, although we’re happy to hear from others too:

  • Funding expertise, particularly in the journalism/social change space
  • Wordpress, coding and web design
  • Social enterprise/cooperative management
  • Community engagement and outreach

You can find out more on our website theferret.scot, in our director briefing pack and please also feel free to contact any of our existing directors for a chat about the roles. To apply, just fill in this form.
