Role

An exciting opportunity to join our college as a Director of the Board

Newbattle Abbey College is seeking to recruit several new members to its Board of Directors. You may never have considered a Board position before; however, your experience may be invaluable! Many of us do not realise how much we have to offer, so even if you are not sure that the Boardroom is for you, please contact us and discuss the role and the contribution you could make.

The Board of Directors has a pivotal role in achieving our ambition. As a Director of the Board, you will demonstrate commitment, provide leadership and strategic direction for the College, drive excellence in corporate governance, and support staff to deliver the highest standards of learning and teaching. The Board also has a crucial role in engaging with key stakeholders, businesses, and employers across the community and beyond. Board Directors are expected to act as public ambassadors and advocates for the College, valuing and respecting diversity and promoting an ethos of inclusion, equality, and positive well-being.

The time commitment may be up to 10 days per year, mainly in the afternoons/early evenings. The post is not remunerated; however, reasonable expenses will be reimbursed. The appointment term will be up to four years in the first instance.

If you would like further information about the role or to arrange a discussion, please contact Pauline Donald, Board Governance Advisor (interim) paulinedonald@nac.ac.uk.
