Fife Centre for Equalities (FCE) are recruiting suitably skilled people to join the Board to help deliver our vision and mission. If you are passionate about equality, diversity, inclusion and social justice, then this could be the volunteering role you've been looking for. Fife Centre for Equalities (FCE) was established in April 2014, as a joint initiative between Fife Council, Fife Voluntary Action and NHS Fife with the aim of working in partnership to develop more inclusive and responsive services for people in Fife, and to build a positive picture of Fife's modern and diverse population. FCE became an independent body on 1st July 2016 and continues to work in partnership to develop a more harmonised approach in engaging different equality groups as well as supporting partners to improve their performances in meeting their duties under the Equality Act 2010. Our Trustees need to have a passion and commitment to build a collective voice to champion equality, diversity, inclusion and social justice, along with the ability to provide strong governance and direction to ensure the delivery of our objectives.
Roles and responsibilities of Trustee and regular development days for Trustees.
FCE are particularly keen to receive applications from individuals who have financial management experiences or have good understanding of charity legislation. As an equality organisation, FCE are committed to ensure our organisation is inclusive in every aspect, so do let us know if you require any reasonable adjustments to enable you to attend meetings.
Restrictions on who can volunteer
No restrictions were specified.
Application Form; Informal Chat
FCE's office is based in Kirkcaldy. Board meetings normally take place during normal office hours, once every 2 months, in either Kirkcaldy or Glenrothes.
Director, Trustee, Board/Committee member or Governor?!
Organisations have different names for the volunteers who are responsible for the running of the organisation - some are called Board members, some are Committee members, some may use the word Director for example. Broadly speaking, they mean the same thing - the people at the top who are ultimately responsible! These are important roles (for which training and support is available) and without volunteers at board level voluntary sector organisations could not exist.
