Current vacancies

Chair of the Board of Trustees/Finance Director

  • Management Board
  • Unpaid
  • Glasgow
  • Closing 22nd March 2021

Pinkston Watersports is Scotland's 1st and only artificial whitewater course. Our objectives focus on three main areas of Sport, Social Enterprise, and Community. Pinkston and its activities contribute towards community and physical regeneration; a mechanism for the education of young people and adults alike; a centre of sporting excellence; and the promotion of watersports in Scotland. By promoting our sports and making them accessible to all we deliver benefits to the health and wellbeing of local residents and others in the region.

The current Board is well established and diverse but Pinkston is transitioning from a start-up to an established and ambitious social enterprise. As our local area changes with over £750million of new housing developing in Sighthill and significant business initiatives at Port Dundas, Pinkston is looking for new talent to help seize these opportunities and to grow our social enterprise, deliver our charitable objects and play our part in the nations Covid-19 recovery.

We are looking to recruit a new chair and a Director of Finance to help prepare for the transformation occurring in the local area and to seize the opportunity to introduce more people to the wonders of paddling and swimming in the heart of Glasgow.

These voluntary roles involve a commitment of around 4 hours a month. This includes board meetings which are on an evening 6.30-8pm online; usually bi-monthly, but recently monthly due to our Covid-19 response.
