Established in 2009, CREATE Paisley (CREATE) is an innovative youth project at the heart of Renfrewshire (Paisley) which seeks to see young people transformed through creativity, community, confidence and finding their voice.
CREATE is founded upon a Christian ethos. The events and activities which CREATE run, are not evangelistic, but are underpinned by four of what we believe are God’s values in the world; creativity, community, confidence and voice.
We currently have an exciting opportunity to recruit a Chairperson to join the Board of CREATE.

The Chairperson will have a strategic role to play in representing the vision and purpose of the organisation and will carry out the following responsibilities:
1. Provide organisational leadership
2. Ensure the board functions properly
3. Support and supervise senior staff
4. Represent the organisation

We are a team of volunteers based in and around Aberdeen responsible for Pushing Out the Boat, North-East Scotland’s magazine of new writing and the visual arts.
The Coordinator/Project Manager role involves project management of both team and the tasks needed to produce our regular magazine.
You would be joining us along with our new editor in time to help manage an entire production cycle from the commitment to go ahead through to publication and launch of a new edition.
You would assign and coordinate tasks with team members, compile a schedule of tasks critical to the agreed timetable, and ensure those tasks are completed timeously.
We are a registered charity (Registered No. SC044919) and you would become a member of our managing committee.
While an interest in the arts would be a bonus, experience in coordination and project management are more important to fulfil this role successfully.
We are a friendly group and the work of the editor and coordinator/project manager is supported by a wider team at and between regular committee meetings.
For more details please contact Roger White, PR Manager at email: email@example.com or tel: 07925 822489.
