City of Glasgow Gymnastics Club – Finance Director

City of Glasgow GC is long established and hugely successful gymnastics club based in the heart of Glasgow. We have been producing successful athletes for decades with many Scottish Champions crowned, and some have represented Scotland at the Commonwealth Games. We always strive to give the best experience to all connected with the club. Our current focus is on men’s artistic, women’s artistic, acrobatic, and disability gymnastics.

The club, which is Limited by Guarantee, is looking to expand the knowledge and expertise of the Board of Directors ahead of one of the most exciting and challenging projects undertaken by the club. The next phase of our growth and development aligns with our National Governing Body, Scottish Gymnastics.
We are seeking a Finance Director to join our Board of Directors. This role is voluntary, but all out of pocket expenses will be covered as per our expenses policy. We also recognise voluntary board roles are not always the most appealing, but this is a truly unique opportunity to make a huge difference to the Glasgow community and beyond and to be part of something special. We anticipate only three hours per week will be required plus a monthly board meeting.

Prior knowledge of gymnastics is not required, and don’t worry we won’t expect any new directors to participate in any gymnastics sessions.

For an informal chat about this excellent opportunity, please contact Chairperson Shirley Gorrell on 07470 231 017 or by email coggclub@gmail.com.

Application Process

Applicants should apply by submitting a copy of their CV and a short cover letter outlining motivations for applying and how the applicant’s skills and expertise fit with the Finance Director role. Applications should be sent to Chairperson Shirley Gorrell, via email at coggclub@gmail.com.

The closing date for applications is 11.59 on Tuesday 28 June 2022. Interviews will take place in early July.
