Could you help to direct leisure?

Fresh faces are needed on the board that helps to deliver local leisure and

cultural services.

The EDLC Trust oversees the delivery of local leisure and cultural services - including three leisure centres, eight libraries, a museum, art gallery, arts centre, sports development and active schools programmes.

Applications are being sought for the appointment of two independent directors to join the partner and independent directorsc already on the board.

Ideally applicants should be knowledgeable in either or both leisure and cultural services.

Having skills in a profession or other capacity that would add value and support to Board decisions would also be an advantage.

Trust chairman Scott Hill said: We would like to hear from people who have an interest in public service and who are committed to promoting leisure and cultural services.

“This is a great opportunity to shape the delivery and development of our current range of services.

“As a Director you will be responsible for setting the strategic direction and reviewing the performance of the Trust.

“On average, Directors will serve on the Board and Sub Groups around eight times per year. This may involve travelling to venues throughout East Dunbartonshire as and when required. However, meetings of the Board will normally be held in Kirkintilloch.

“The Directors are voluntary roles, however they are entitled to receive costs incurred while serving, including travel, subsistence and all reasonable expenses.”

Anyone interested in further details or in applying for one of these roles can obtain an application pack from Maeve Kilcoyne by emailing maeve.kilcoyne@eastdunbarton.gov.uk or calling 0141 777 3147. Applications should be returned by Wednesday, September 30.
