Non-Executive Directors

  • VO84306
  • Home-based volunteering, Board/trustee role


Description

We are looking for people that will help shape the future of Grampian Credit Union!

Grampian Credit Union is a mutual, not for profit financial services provider with a common bond covering
Aberdeen City, Aberdeen Shire and Moray. This year, we have vacancies for Non-Executive Directors (Board members and members of our Supervisory Committee). These vacancies have arisen from Directors reaching the end of their current
terms, or because they are moving on.

Volunteering with us in the mentioned roles is rewarding and offers the satisfaction of knowing you are
helping our credit union to grow, develop, and maintain a successful organisation for the common good. Moreover, you will develop and or hone transferrable skills.

The recent move to online meetings and gatherings has opened up other ways and possibilities of
conducting the Board meeting without the historical long commute. So if you are interested but worried
about the commute, then worry no more. Just contact and let's have a chat.
