Join Our Board
Sonic Bothy was constituted as a charity in 2015 and is in a period of expanding organisational capacity to meet its growing remit. We are seeking to expand our board in order to provide a broader range of support to the organisation. In addition to its governance and leadership role, the board has responsibility for the management and support of the small staff team.
A passion for new music and previous board experience are advantageous but not essential. Direct and relevant experience of working with adults with Additional Support Needs, or similarly vulnerable groups, would be advantageous, as would an understanding of how small charities operate within the confines of a restricted budget.
The skills we have identified a need for are:
• Finance and Governance
• Fundraising / Income Generation
• Legal / HR
• Digital Marketing
We are also seeking to address an under-representation of people with lived experience of disability, and therefore would encourage applications from anyone who identifies in this way.
The board meets a minimum of four times per year with meetings usually falling in March, June, September and December in addition to an AGM in April. Board members may also be expected to give some extra time in support of the organisation's activities, by participating in subcommittees, research etc. Sonic Bothy performs around six times per year and board members are expected to attend a minimum of two performances.
Cost of travel to and from board meetings from within Scotland will be paid. We cannot cover costs of travel from outside of Scotland.
Please note that this is a voluntary, unpaid position.
