Scotland volunteer vacancies

24 February 2020

The CMI Scotland Board is currently inviting applications for new Board members to help support, shape and influence the important management and leadership work in the region. Board members are all volunteers and act as the link between CMI, its members and partner organisations within the Region. Each Board member takes the lead in a particular area of Board responsibility. There are approx eight Board meetings per year, the majority of which are virtual and in the main take place on a Saturday. Timings of meetings are agreed by the Board and members are expected to participate. Board members may also be required to contribute to working groups and support volunteers/events.  This may involve some evening work.

The CMI advise that volunteers should expect to commit at least 8 hours per month.

We are looking to appoint suitably qualified professional individuals with the motivation, drive, resilience, time and skills to contribute to the Board from April as we start to roll out more opportunities for our members to engage through local events and workshops. If you live and/or work in Scotland and have the interest, time and enthusiasm to be a member of the Board we would encourage you to apply. Whether you are in the early stages of your career or have significant experience we are keen to hear from you. This is a great opportunity to develop your Board skills and/or to share your experience and expertise to the benefit of the CMI community.

The available roles are listed below. Further information on each role can be found in the links, and supported by further information on volunteering with CMI.

Why Volunteer with CMI

How to apply:

Please submit your current CV plus a covering statement detailing which role are you interested in and why, and what are you good at that would be helpful if you were a Board member?

Please email your applications to: no later than Thursday 19 March.

For your information, our Hubs will provide a local interface for members and will be a focus for local activity and engagement and will initially be located in member population hotspots. There will be further opportunities to get involved following this tranche of recruitment in the second half of the year as we launch additional Hubs within the region, possibly in the North East, Aberdeen and the Highlands and Islands.

We look forward to receiving your applications for the vacant Board roles and/or your expression of interest in being involved in the Hubs.

In the meantime if you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact

Kind regards
