Dundee Voluntary Action is a leading, trusted and flourishing organisation, working to make a difference to lives of people and communities in the city. An exciting opportunity has arisen to promote and champion Good Governance in Scotland’s Third Sector. Working with the Good Governance Award Manager, initially you will assist with assessing evidence submitted and provide constructive feedback to charities undertaking the Introduction to Good Governance Programme, a nationwide, evidence based e-portfolio confirming that they meet 12 criteria deemed essential for good governance. A good knowledge of the roles and responsibilities of Scottish Charity Trustees and confidence to provide constructive feedback to people at this level is therefore essential. You may have previously worked in an organisational development, training or capacity building role, reported to or trained Charity Trustees or have been a Trustee yourself for example. Or perhaps you have experience working in HR. You will be passionate about governance with a desire to help Scottish Charities run efficiently and effectively using best practice throughout.

Additional tasks may include helping to organise events, attending events, report preparation, creating a newsletter, press releases, promoting the award and recruiting prospective organisations. As such you will need to be a confident communicator both verbally and in writing with the ability to prioritise your workload under minimal supervision. You must be proficient in the use of Microsoft applications and experience of online assessment tools such as Onefile would be an advantage.
