Role

Pinkston Watersports is Scotland’s 1st and only artificial white water course. We also operate flat water activities in our clean canal basin and land based activities adjacent. Our objectives focus on three main areas of Sport, Social Enterprise and Community. Pinkston and its activities contribute towards community regeneration and physical activity; a mechanism for supporting education of young people and adults alike in the urban outdoors. Pinkston’s vision is to be recognised as a centre for sporting excellence, to promote watersports in Scotland whilst ensuring accessibility for all. By promoting our sports and making them accessible to all we can deliver a wide range of health and wellbeing benefits.

The current Board is well established and diverse but Pinkston is transitioning from a start-up to an growing and ambitious Social Enterprise. Our local area is changing with over £750 million of new housing developments in Sighthill and significant business development in Port Dundas. Pinkston is looking for new talent to seize these opportunities and grow our social enterprise and support the delivery of our charitable objectives.

Our Board is well represented in terms of clubs and paddlesports and therefore we are particularly keen to attract applicants with local development and/or community engagement and evaluation experience. In addition, we would value applicants with HR, legal or fundraising expertise. We are committed to conscious inclusion and value applicants from a range of backgrounds.

This a voluntary role(s) and the commitment involves around 4 hours per month. This includes Board meetings at 6 weekly intervals often held online from 6.30pm until 9pm. If you would like further information in advance of your application, please contact Jo Brown for a copy of our current Business Plan (extract). We expect interviews to be conducted in early August.
