Non-remunerated, reasonable expenses paid
Now is a very exciting time. We have just launched a new ten-year strategy, From Beginning to Mend, which sets out an ambitious plan for the future. We have a very skilled and motivated Board, and an effective Leadership Team in place led by Mark Bishop, CEO, who joined a year ago to drive change and transformation.
Dynamic Earth seek to appoint up to 3 new Trustees to help them achieve their goal of making their unique educational experience accessible to all! Trustees help to set the strategic direction, and review and monitor Dynamic Earth’s work and activities, both financial and operational, supporting and challenging the Management Team in meeting the organisation’s mission and vision.
Trustees play a key role by bringing their own experience to inform strategy and to act as ambassadors and facilitators for the organisation. Dynamic Earth are seeking applications from strategic individuals, who are committed to making science fun and accessible and helping to enhance all areas of operation within the organisation. Trustees should be capable of working with a wide range of stakeholders, be effective communicators and have strong interpersonal skills.
The Chair of the Board may delegate certain tasks to individuals or groups of Trustees. Trustees should be able and willing to contribute to a wide range of activities to bring the vision of Dynamic Earth to life. These include tasks related to networking and fundraising.
Dynamic Earth welcome applications from a wide range of sectors and are keen to hear from those who are passionate about science and widening participation. They are committed to making the experience accessible and inclusive and this vision should be closely mirrored in their newly appointed trustees. Specific areas of experience that we require are noted below:
- Honorary Treasurer
- Expertise in formal learning in Scotland, notably the school’s marketplace
- Organisational development and HR-related strategic expertise
- Earth and environmental science fields
Trustees will be required to attend quarterly Board Meetings and there would further commitments for participation in any relevant Committees joined. Trustees will also be invited to attend events run by Dynamic Earth e.g. Gala Dinners, Fundraising events etc.
