We protect and promote the interests of Scotland’s boating community; the people, the RYA Affiliated Clubs, the Class Associations and the RYA Recognised Training Centres across Scotland.
We have come a long way in a short time and are very proud of our achievements and our innovative approaches. Even through these current testing times we have delivered continuously, pushing new and innovative ways to engage and spread our messages to the boating community, we still want to improve.
Our Members and our stakeholders want and deserve to hear more about our critical work. We want to be clear about our successes and our challenges and for the RYA membership offer to become the clarion call of Scotland’s boating community.
Our Board of Directors serves this diverse community by leading the strategic direction of the organisation in Scotland and we are currently seeking to appoint a Communications and Marketing Director.
The voluntary role will require a background in Communications and Marketing and ideally you will have some experience around membership or events. A knowledge of boating is not essential as you will have the support of our entire staff team and our other Directors who live and breathe all things boats.
Board meetings will move around the country and, with options to meet electronically being a normal part of our methods, we are keen to have representation from across Scotland.
This role is voluntary and not remunerated, however RYA Scotland will meet your expenses for attending meetings and support your development in your chosen role.
Applications will be open until 14 August and a member of our Appointments Panel will contact you after this date to discuss your application.
