We are delighted to support the British Science Association (BSA) in the recruitment for additional Council Members.
The British Science Association (BSA) was founded in 1831 and incorporated by Royal Charter. Their vision is of a world where science is at the heart of culture and society and their mission is to transform the diversity and inclusivity of science; to reach under-served audiences, and to increase the number of people who are actively engaged and involved in science. They achieve this by unlocking the potential of a more diverse group of people, increase our ability to tackle some of the world’s biggest challenges and shape our future for the better.
BSA has a Council which fulfils the role of a Board. As a charity trustee, your role is to work with other Council members to set the strategic direction and effective running of the organisation.
BSA is looking to appoint two Trustees who meet any one of the following skills:
- Board/governance experience (or adjacent/transferable skills)
- Expertise in research/science policy
- Experience of working in or with community groups who reach under-served or disadvantaged audiences
In addition to the above, each Trustee should use any specific skills, knowledge or experience they have to help the Board of Trustees reach sound decisions. These may involve scrutinising Board and Committee papers, leading discussions, focusing on key issues, providing advice and guidance on new initiatives and other issues in which the Trustee has special expertise.
These posts are currently unremunerated voluntary positions, but reasonable expenses will be met. For more information on the roles and their specifications, please download the trustee information pack below.DOWNLOAD PDF PACK DOWNLOAD PLAIN TEXT PACK
