Who are we, and what do we need?
The Glencorse Association is a charitable organisation that runs the Glencorse Centre, a community facility located in Auchendinny, about a mile north of Penicuik. We organise community-based activities, to promote the health and welfare of local residents and rent our facilities to local groups and businesses who offer services to the local community. We also operate a volunteer-run community café, including children’s play area, and garden. More information about the Centre can be found through our Facebook page, namely Glencorse Centre.
It is vital that we recruit new Board Members to help shape the future of the only service to the community in Auchendinny.
If you are passionate about sustaining a community led service and developing community spaces and would be interested in supporting the Glencorse Association in delivering its mission and vision, we would love to hear from you!
We are looking for new Board Members who can support with strategic development and augment the range of skills available in the current board so we can develop the community centre, community garden and the services that we offer. We would be particularly interested in new Board Members who have experience in one, or several, of the following domains:
• Third sector organisations and funding applications
• Organising events and fundraising
• A treasurer who can analyse financial performance
• IT and social media development
• Environmental/net zero in a workplace
• Managing volunteers
• Health and safety in the workplace
We are open to any other developmental ideas that you feel you could bring to the Glencorse Association and the local community.
Your skills and interests may have been developed through working for a small or large organisation, working for yourself, volunteering or simply by life experience. You don’t need to have prior experience on a board, we will provide a full induction and help you understand the role and responsibilities of being a Board Member.
A role on the Glencorse Association Board is flexible and we understand that individual personal circumstances may dictate the level of engagement you can offer.
The Board meets monthly for two hours and communicates remotely in between meetings to discuss any urgent matters that have been escalated. The Board holds an annual AGM and all Board Members are expected to attend to reflect on our work and to set strategy and plans for the coming year. Additional opportunities to support the Glencorse Centre's staff and community on specific areas of interest and priority are also available, depending on the Board Member’s interests and experience.
As a Disability Confident committed employer, we will commit to offering an interview to any applicant who declares he, she or they have a disability, if that applicant meets the minimum criteria for the role.
What are we offering?
You will have the opportunity to work as part of a welcoming, quirky team who are highly dedicated, committed and passionate about maintaining and developing our much-loved community hub. You will join a couple of Board Members with a wealth of experience and an interesting story to tell!
If this is your first time becoming a Trustee, you'll have the support to help to settle into your new role. For experienced Board Members, you have the opportunity to improve the lives of local residents and the wider community in Midlothian by contributing your innovative ideas for change and to the growth of our charitable organisation.
