Board Members - Ayrshire College
Closing date: 14 April 2019 at midnight
Ayrshire College is recruiting three new members to its Board of Management. You may never have considered a Board position before however, your experience may be invaluable! Many of us don't realise how much we have to offer, so even if you are really not sure that the Boardroom is for you, please contact us to discuss the role of the Board and its Members and the contribution you could make.
Ayrshire College is a vibrant, student-centered place of learning and our motto ‘Start Here, Go Anywhere', we believe, sets the scene for our approach to encouraging and engaging our students at this important stage in their lives
You will be committed to a public service role where you can use your experience to influence the strategic direction of the College to serve the communities and address business needs.
Board Members will also be expected to act as public ambassadors and advocates for the College in the wider community of Ayrshire and beyond. As an ambassador you will value and respect diversity and promote an ethos of inclusion, equality and positive well-being.
The Board encourages applications from individuals representing all aspects of the communities of Ayrshire and would therefore welcome applications from under-represented groups such as people with disabilities and ethnic minorities. The essential criterion is for you to have an appropriate level of commitment, knowledge and experience to add value to the deliberations and work of the Board of Management.
Applications are also particularly invited from individuals with experience of key local economy sectors including Hospitality, Engineering, the Third Sector and Sport. In addition, applications from individuals with specific skills in Health & Social Care, Human Resource Management/Strategy, Academia, Accounting, Audit, Financial Management and Construction are also welcomed.
The time commitment is approximately 15 days or 105 hours per year, mainly in the afternoons/early evenings although this also includes the time for reading papers. There is no remuneration for the posts; however, reasonable expenses will be reimbursed. The appointment term will be up to four years.
It is currently envisaged that interviews will be held during the week beginning 13 May 2018. The interview and candidate assessment process may include a social event designed to let applicants meet with other Board members, students and staff of the College, together with members of the College Executive Management Team, in an informal setting.
