VILN Recruitment

Dear Member,

The Board of VisitInvernessLochNess are seeking nominations to fill two vacant director positions.

Nominees should either be owners who may nominate themselves or employees of levy paying organisations and be nominated with the approval of the eligible vote holder for that company.

Nominees should ideally have experience of Board working and be competent in at least in one of the following skills: Finance, HR, Compliance & Corporate Governance and Digital Marketing.
Each nominee should complete the form available HERE and return it together with a short (max 250 words) personal statement describing why you are standing for the position of Director and what skills you can bring to the Board.

The time commitment for directors is 1 day per month. Directors are expected to attend and take an active role  in Board meetings (4 per annum) and one of the Board sub groups, which meet on average once every two months. Directors are also expected to attend VisitInvernessLochNess networking events and, if required, other events at which a presence is expected of VisitInvernessLochNess.
The performance of each new director will be reviewed with the chair of the Board at the end of a six month probationary period. Where development needs are identified, it is expected that to continue in the position, directors will undertake the necessary training.
Finally, we draw the attention of nominees to the Director Code of Conduct HERE to which directors are expected to adhere to.

The appointment is for a 3 year term.

The closing date for nominations is 30th September 2019.  Nominations should be returned electronically to the email address at the foot of the nomination form.
Should more than two nominations be received for the available positions, an election will be held.

The Timetable for appointment of the Directors is set out as follows:

4th September 2019   – Call for Nominations sent to all Visit Inverness Loch Ness Ltd levy payers

30th September 2019   – Closing date for Board nominations and supporting personal statements

If only two nominations are received there will be no election and the nominees will be invited on to the Board.

1st October 2019   – Board election papers sent out electronically where more than two nominations are received.

15th October 2019 – Deadline for votes to be submitted

16th October 2019 – Nominees and members notified of results

Please return the nomination form and personal statement to [email protected]
