Quality Meat Scotland – 21st June

Do you have knowledge and experience of the red meat sector, animal production or relevant marketing and promotional activities?  Are you keen to share your views and influence the future of Scotland’s National Red Meat Organisation? Do you want to extend your network and enhance your leadership skills?

Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) is currently seeking 5 new board members (paid roles). CtC is hosting a free online session will give you the chance to find out more about the criteria and about the important role of the organisation, hear about how to apply for one of the vacancies and have a chance to ask about what being on the board entails and tips for applying for such roles.

You will hear from Kate Rowell, the Chair of QMS, Alan Clarke Chief Executive QMS, Kevin Mills from the Scottish Government Public Appointments team and from Anna Davis, a member of Changing the Chemistry with public sector board experience. There will also be a chance to ask questions on the roles and the appointment process.

Board Recruitment Event for the Scottish Environment Protection Agency

Do you want to help Scotland meet its climate change and net zero ambitions? Have you considered how your skills and experience could help to shape the future for environmental protection in Scotland?

Scotland’s EPA, the nation’s independent environmental regulator, is recruiting two Board members and creating a Board that represents the diversity of Scotland.

This event, in collaboration with Changing the Chemistry, will share more information about SEPA’s role, provide an insight into the role of a Board member and what to expect from the application process. The event is designed for people who might not have considered a board position before, particularly those from ethnic minority backgrounds and under represented communities.

Across the event you’ll hear directly from:

  • Bob Downes, Chair of SEPA’s Board
  • Dr Harpreet Kohli, SEPA Board member
  • Fran van Dijk, Changing the Chemistry and SEPA Board member
  • Helen Miller, Public Appointments Team, Scottish Government

Many of us don’t realise how much we have to offer an organisation and how our experiences can add value in the Boardroom. SEPA is looking for candidates with strategic analytical capability; and/or environmental performance and the ability to demonstrate longer term planning/seeing the bigger picture; communication and influencing; constructive and supportive challenge; and analysis and decision making.

Please reserve a place via Eventbrite –  28th June online at 6pm (book here).
