Chair - Perth College Board of Management
Closing date:06 July 2018 at midnight
Perth College is the largest academic partner in the University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI), Scotland’s newest university and is a leading College of Further and Higher Education offering training, education and skills development opportunities from access to masters level.
We are looking for talented and enthusiastic individuals who have a strong commitment to Further and Higher Education to join our Board of Management.
Board Members make an important contribution to Perth College UHI and their experience, knowledge and commitment enables them to contribute to the College’s strategic direction, decision-making and continued development.
The Board is committed to equality and diversity and to ensuring that our governing body represents the staff, students and community that it serves and applications are particularly welcome from women, people with disabilities and people from ethnic minorities.
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 communities where they live.
A minimum time commitment of approximately six days per year is required: the roles require attendance at four Board meetings a year (usually early evening) and members may join a Board sub-committee, which also meets three to four times a year. Reasonable out of pocket expensed for Board business are reimbursed.
We are holding an open evening to promote the work of the College and the Board and to provide information to candidates interested in either role. Some of our current Board Members will be there to share their experiences about working on the Board of Management.
When: Monday 18 June from 5pm to 5.30pm
Location: Room 019 in the Brahan Building
