Scottish Orienteering Association (SOA) is the national governing body of the sport of
orienteering in Scotland. We are seeking to appoint a number of elected Directors to our Board at our AGM in May as part of a restructuring exercise. The Directors will also fill the role of Trustees of the SOA as a registered charity. These are voluntary positions.
We are seeking Directors in the following areas (Job Descriptions and Person Specifications for these positions are attached in Appendices below):
However, we are also interested in recruiting to the Board people with skills in law, IT, HR and fundraising.
For the positions of President and Director of Operations a knowledge and understanding of orienteering is essential; for the other roles, a knowledge and understanding of orienteering is desirable but not essential.
Directors are elected for a 3-year term of office in the first instance. A Director is responsible, along with the other Directors and led by the Chair of the Board, for the effective governance of Scottish Orienteering, setting the overall shape and direction of the SOA, which is both a Limited Company and a Registered Charity, and being vigilant to ensure it stays on course.
