Current vacancies

VisionPK Trustee / Board Director

  • Management Board
  • Unpaid
  • Perth (Hybrid)
  • Closing 28th June 2024

VisionPK is a charity providing a range of specialist services for those who have sight loss and hearing loss living in Perth and Kinross. We are at an exciting stage in our strategic development, and we are seeking new Trustees to join our Board. We are looking for people who act with empathy, respect and are passionate about our work. It is important that you understand the role and importance of governance in the third sector. We welcome applicants to this voluntary role from people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds and are keen to hear from people with lived experience of sight or hearing loss.

We are particularly interested to hear from people with the following skills and experience:

· Finance

· Media/PR / Marketing

· Digital / Technology

· Legal

· Fundraising

· Health and Social Care

Commitment:

The board meet bi-monthly and meetings are hybrid – online and face to face – so this may suit potential Board members who are further afield, although we would like you to have knowledge of Perth and Kinross.

The duration of Board meetings is usually no longer than 2 hours. All relevant papers are forwarded on a reasonable timescale, either via email or posted in hard copy.

Aside from the board meeting, additional time consideration should be given to allow time to read through relevant papers, follow up on any action points, and may involve attending occasional additional meetings, events, or strategy days.

There is also a half day induction session to attend, ideally face to face in VisionPK sensory Hub in Perth. This will provide an opportunity to meet some of the staff and find more out about VisionPK and becoming a board member.

This is a voluntary role, but VisionPK will cover relevant out-of-pocket travel and other expenses that would allow you to attend meetings.
