Non Executive Director Vacancies with EDAS - Applications Deadline 5th October 2020


EDAS is the country's foremost membership-driven association for all organisations and individuals with an interest or role in Scotland's economic development. With an extensive cross sector membership, EDAS supports the development of the knowledge, skills and networks of its near 3,000-strong membership; providing a voice for the economic development profession, and a space in which to learn about and contribute to related policy and good practice. EDAS improves the effectiveness of Scotland’s economic development policy, delivery, and capacity.

We currently have Non-Executive Director vacancies. Although any relevant background will be considered, we are particularly looking for people with expertise or a background in local government or the third sector. We are also aiming to expand the diversity of the Board.

This is an exciting position that requires broad knowledge of Scotland’s economic development community and a commitment to build on the organisation’s success in developing its membership and strategic partnerships, member offerings and CPD, and policy and practice work programme. The Board is seeking directors who will contribute to maintaining the organisation’s track record of sound strategic, operational, and financial management.   

Directorships are unpaid, though expenses will be covered.  The Board meets quarterly and Directors are currently meeting online. Meetings last no more than two hours. There is an expectation that Directors will contribute to one or more sub-groups, which cover Finance and Governance, CPD and Membership, and Policy and Practice.  Directors serve a maximum of four terms of three years and are required to retire and be the subject of re-election every three years.

As a Director of EDAS, you can expect to enjoy making new connections, leading on the development and growth of the organisation, and supporting your professional development.

If you feel that you have the skills and commitment to become a director, please send your CV, detailing two referees, to Elaine Bone 

Closing Date for applications:  Monday, 5th October 2020. Interviews will be held at the end of October and nominations taken to the current Board of Directors thereafter.  The first meeting of the new Board will be held in December.
