Citymoves are seeking Voluntary Chair for Board of Trustees and additional Trustees (up to 3)
Citymoves Dance Agency SCIO is a Scottish Charity (SC045499) with the vision and aims of promoting dance in the North East of Scotland in an inclusive, affordable and accessible manner. We operate 2 dance studios in Aberdeen city centre, supporting professional dance artists, as well as offering our local community dancers a full programme of dance classes for all ages, but also have a number of outreach dance related projects, such as; working with adults with Parkinson's disease and with young people in areas of deprivation or with children and adults with additional support needs.
As part of our succession planning process, we are seeking to recruit a new Chair to replace our current Chair who plans to step down in the coming months following 6 years with the organisation.
This is a voluntary role, and preference would be given to individuals with a track record in Board membership and chairing meetings, and who have a strong interest in Dance and/or the Arts and Culture, and also in Wellbeing.
We are also seeking additional voluntary trustees to join our Board. We are particularly keen to recruit members who possess one or more of the following skills:
• Experience or background in HR
• Experience of fundraising.
• Experience of dealing with Property and/or Health and Safety matters
• Experience in communication/media
• Interest in technology relevant to the arts with a mindset for the future
• An interest in dance and the promotion of physical and mental wellbeing
Board meetings are held every three months, usually on a Tuesday evening between 6.00pm and 8.00pm. These are currently on Zoom, so no physical presence required. Therefore we would welcome applications from across Scotland. The Board is responsible for setting the strategy and policies of Citymoves and ensuring good governance, and guides and supports the Chief Executive and her staff. We are an equal opportunities charity and welcome and will consider all applications.
If you would like to find out more about Citymoves or express an interest in joining the Board, please contact Carol Benzie, Chief Executive in the first instance: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01224 984159.
Closing Date: Friday 15th January 2021
