Ayrshire College is recruiting new members to its Board of Management. You may not previously have considered a Board position;
however, your experience may be invaluable! Ayrshire College Board of Management is very keen to increase the diversity of its non-executive Board Membership. 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.

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. As a member of the Board you will promote and maintain the highest standards of corporate governance and accountability.

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. The essential criteria is for you to have an appropriate level of commitment, knowledge and experience and will add value to the deliberations and work of the Board of Management

Applications are 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, Information Technology, Academia, Accounting, Audit, Financial Management and Construction are also welcomed.

The time commitment is approximately 15 days per year, mainly in the afternoons/early evenings. There is no remuneration for the posts; however, reasonable expenses will be reimbursed. The appointment term will be up to four years. The length of the individual appointment term will be determined by the mix of skills, knowledge and experience of those individuals identified as being most able to meet the role and needs of the College going forward.

Appointment Process

It is envisaged that interviews will be held during the week beginning 7 May 2018. The interviews will be preceded on the evening before by a social event at the Ayr Campus 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.
