This involves attending around 6 early evening (at 5.30pm) board meetings per year, attending sub group meetings and helping deliver action points outside of this time. The board meetings are the opportunity for board members to discuss and manage the various aspects of the organisation including strategic planning, finance, funding and HR issues. What we are looking for in a Volunteer Trustee is passion about volunteering and the benefits it can bring to the individual and community, as well as a belief in Volunteer Midlothian as an organisation.
We help over 500 people a year in Midlothian find a volunteering opportunity, as well as support a network of 200 organisations involve volunteers effectively. We also deliver a number of high quality volunteering projects that help the community in various ways.
If you are passionate about the important contribution that volunteers can make to their local communities, and the potential of volunteering to empower individuals to develop new skills and achieve their own goals, then we want to hear from you!
In return you will be given the opportunity to contribute to the development of volunteering in Midlothian; be involved in a dynamic and progressive organisation and gain valuable experience and skills which can enhance your CV.
Our Board members should be passionate about volunteering and the benefits to be gained from it. It helps to have personal experience of volunteering and the ability to work at a strategic level. We are particularly keen to have applications from potential Board members with law and/or governance skills and experience, to complement the expertise of the rest of the Board.
