Home-based volunteering, Board/trustee role
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.

The group starts at 715pm where we can get into the room for 7pm to set up, then finishes at 915pm with 15 minutes to tidy and clear up.
We are looking for a Volunteer Committee Member who will help with the setting up, introduction and packing up of the support group. We currently have a committee with a Chair, Treasurer, Secretary, Events/Fundraising Coordinator and 3x Committee Members so the setting up, introduction and closing of the group will only be required for 3-4 groups per year.

For 2018, we will have one fundraising event organising per quarter, this varies from bag packing at supermarkets to organising a fashion show which we are planning for the last quarter of 2018. We require help with bag packing, collection tins, general organising and fundraising.
The individual should be friendly, approachable and willing to help. We only require up to 5 hours of volunteering per month but we can easily increase this if the candidate has availability to.
The support group is held on the first Thursday of each month, weather permitting.
