Description

Garioch Community Kitchen (GCK) is a small Charity based in Wyness Hall, Inverurie. We exist to enhance the health and well-being of all sectors of the community in Central Aberdeenshire.
We aim to provide a range of services including informative food workshops in a safe and supported environment, delivering practical and nutritional information and teaching transferable food skills in the Wyness Hall and on an outreach basis. We work in partnership with other agencies and groups to promote healthy cooking and eating choices.

GCK are currently seeking to recruit Trustees to our Committee on a voluntary basis. We are looking for motivated, enthusiastic individuals who can contribute their knowledge and skill base to the Charity.
It is essential our Committee is made up of people with varying skill sets and therefore we welcome applications from individuals from the private, public and/or third sector who do not have specific food or nutrition skills or knowledge but have an interest or are passionate about what we do.
Due to succession planning we are looking to recruit a Vice Chair who would potentially take on the role of Chair. Other vacancies are for a Treasurer and general Committee members.
Committee meetings are held quarterly, and Committee members are expected to attend, with email communication outwith these meetings. The Committee are responsible for the governance of the Charity, will be involved in strategic planning and support the Business Development Manager.
