BBC Children in Need (BBC CiN) is recruiting new volunteers to be members of their Scotland Advisory Committee, and the Chair of the Committee.
The Advisory Committee, and the Chair of the Committee, are key parts of their grant-making process and they work closely with the Scotland staff team to ensure that BBC Children in Need grants continue to go where they are most needed.
Each Advisory Committee member is part of a small team, who collectively bring together a range of skills, knowledge and experience. This can include: working with children and young people; the voluntary sector; disabilities; social services; equal opportunities; business planning and finance; the rights of the child; and lived experience of some of the challenges BBC CiN seeks to address.
BBC CiN highly values the benefits of having different points of view and experiences on their Advisory Committee and welcome applications from everyone irrespective of sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity, faith and religion, disability and age.
They would especially welcome applications from those with experience of supporting children and young people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) communities, early years and those with a disability. They would also encourage applications from young adults or individuals who may have benefited in the past from the support of one of the projects they have funded.
The closing date for applications to both roles is at 5pm on Thursday 11th March.
If you would like to have an informal discussion about either role, please contact Florence Burke by email: Florence.firstname.lastname@example.org
