Seeking Board Members for Board of Management for Glasgow Kelvin College
(Financial Management and Accountancy Experience preferred skills)
Glasgow Kelvin College's ethos derives from its commitment to Excellence, Progression and Enterprise. It seeks to provide learning opportunities of the highest quality, which engage learners from the widest range of backgrounds, and support their progression to employment or to further study. It seeks to develop enterprise in individuals – as a core skill for learning, life and work; and to support enterprise in both organisations and communities – by developing the capacity of both employers and employees and of community representatives.
The members of our Board and Committees make an important contribution to Glasgow Kelvin College. They bring experience, knowledge and commitment, enabling them to contribute to the College's strategic direction, governance and continued development. Positions on the Board are voluntary and unpaid, but bring huge rewards to members. Your input can make a real difference to the education and prospects of our learners, and to the wellbeing and success of the Glasgow communities where they live.
We are seeking new members for the Board of Management with a preference for an individual with financial management and accountancy experience which will further strengthen the existing skills of the Board.
The Board seeks to give equal opportunities to all who wish to contribute to the College's success and who have a particular interest in developing Further and Higher Education and improving outcomes for learners. We welcome applications from people from ethnic minority backgrounds, from people with disabilities and from women as these groups are currently under-represented on our Board of Management. Experience in finance/accounting is requested.
Relevant expenses are reimbursed. Board and Committee meetings generally take place late afternoon and early evening with a time commitment of around 15 days per year.
