St Andrew’s First Aid is Scotland’s leading First Aid charity dedicated to provide everyone in Scotland with the highest standards in First Aid skills, services and volunteering opportunities.
St Andrew's First Aid Board of Trustees are looking for new members for our Social Enterprise Board to work alongside the chair, vice-chair and other Board Members to oversee and support our Chief Executive and Managing Director to deliver an exciting business strategy and assist the Charity in maintaining its proud reputation in changing times.
The Director(s) will have the ability to assist the Management Team, Employees and Volunteers to make St Andrew's First Aid an even stronger organisation carrying out vital work in Scotland.
The board is currently made up of 8 members each offering a different skill-set designed to support the on-going governance, needs and strategic development aims of the organisation. Becoming a Board Member will not only allow you to play an important part in our growth, but will also bring many non-financial rewards to you; career enhancement, personal satisfaction in knowing you are part of St Andrew's First Aid's peer-less service, the ability to use your skills for a tremendous cause and countless other money can't buy benefits.
St Andrew's First Aid has a well-established Board and staff team, however, we recognize that we need new views and skillsets to continue our journey. We are seeking passionate, Director-level candidates who can bring diversity to our discussions, commercial awareness to decision making, identify new opportunities, open doors through great connections and add enthusiasm to our projects.
This non-paying, yet pivotal role has a requirement for a minimum of 4 Board Meetings per year and participation in ad hoc projects that match the skills and aspirations of the incumbent. Meetings are held in Glasgow.
Our vision "To equip the people of Scotland to provide prompt and appropriate first aid to anyone suffering injury or sudden illness" can only be achieved if we have sufficient funds in place and the strategies to make the organisation more sustainable. We are therefore seeking an experienced fund raising professional to join our team. The role will provide a great opportunity to use your Trusts and Foundations network to make appropriate financial asks to core and project costs. Building long lasting and robust relationships will be key to ensuring that we are represented to our highest potential. Drafting proposals and remaining current and well informed on opportunities will provide great challenges for the right applicant. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a vibrant, dedicated team and be part of the life saving culture of St Andrews.
