VASLan Seeking New Board Members

Voluntary Action South Lanarkshire are passionate about working with others to improve the lives of children, young people, families and communities and about making South Lanarkshire’s Third Sector among the best in Scotland.  This requires that we have a more active strategic role between public and Third Sector stakeholders and to assist us in meeting this challenge as the Third Sector Interface in South Lanarkshire we are seeking to recruit additional talented Board Members.  We are particularly keen to recruit members of the local community or those who have business interests within South Lanarkshire and have one or more of the following skills to make this strategy a reality and to assist us to maintain constant improvement:-

  • Human Resources
  • Finance
  • Communications and Marketing
  • Legal Expertise

The Board meets approximately 8 times per year normally from 10.00 until 12.30 on the first Friday of the month.  There will, from time to time, be the opportunity for Trustees to join sub groups, such as HR & Staffing; Finance; Marketing etc., which meet out-with the main Board Meeting on a monthly basis.  Trustees are also expected to attend the AGM which is normally held in October/November and to be ambassadors for the work of the Third Sector and VASLan.

Communications between meetings usually take place by email or occasional phone call.

Trustees are asked for a commitment of at least one year, starting after a three-month induction.  Board Members are formally appointed at the AGM for a period of three years, which may be extended for an additional three years.
