Kinning Park Complex is looking for new Board Members.

Are you passionate about community ownership and developing membership, community led service and spaces?

Are you interested in supporting the KPC in delivering its mission and vision?

2022 is an exciting year for the Kinning Park Complex as we reopen our warmer, more accessible and bigger building. We are also going through a period of restructuring within the team moving towards a model of shared responsibility and leadership.

KPC is a membership organisation with 80% of our members living in the local area with postcodes of G41, G51 or G5. We would like our board membership to reflect this ratio and would be particularly interested to hear from people

living or working in these postcode areas.

We are committed to equality of opportunity for all and applications from individuals are encouraged regardless of age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and marriage and civil partnerships.

The Role

We are looking for new board members with a range of experience and expertise to lead various sub-committees that govern different areas of our organisation. We are a member based organisation therefore all prospective board members are required to stand for election at our AGM in February 2022. Some trustees may be co-opted in by the board to fill skills gaps outside this election period.

The skills and experiences you feel you can bring to the role will help us build new sub-committees focussing on the areas of Finance (including a new Treasurer) People (including a new Secretary), Projects & Communities, Operations and Marketing & Communications. We are also looking to appoint a Vice Chair from the full cohort of board members.

The skills and interests you have may have been developed through working for a small or large organisation, through working for yourself, through volunteering or life experience. You don’t need to have prior experience on a board and we will provide a full induction and help you understand the role and responsibilities of being a Trustee.

The KPC understands that individual personal circumstances will affect the level of engagement they are able to commit to as a board member. We therefore have three levels of commitment to select from which will determine the time and level of engagement expected from each member.
