Scottish Railway Preservation Society – NXD’s
The Scottish Railway Preservation Society is a volunteer-led organisation operating a 5 mile heritage branch railway and the Museum of Scottish Railways at its Bo’ness site in West Lothian. It runs a programme of national railtours, using heritage coaches, and its retail activity through its subsidiary company, SRPS Railtours Ltd. It is a Company Limited by Guarantee and a Scottish-Registered Charity, with a turnover of over £1 million in 2016. It has a healthy balance sheet; good visitor and passenger numbers, and ambitions to improve and develop its facilities and activities.
The Board of Trustees is being reorganised to meet the demands of a modern charitable business and high standards of corporate governance. As part of this, the Society is seeking two non-executive Directors/Trustees (NXDTs) to join the Board, ideally in September 2017. An interest in railways is useful but not essential; NXDTs will be expected to contribute to the Board, to lead time-limited working groups where necessary, and to join the Society if not already a member. A full induction to the Society’s activities and plans will be given. The Board normally meets 6 times a year.
These positions are for a three-year renewable term; they are not remunerated but reasonable expenses will be reimbursed.
For an informal discussion about the roles, please contact Stefan Kay, Chair of Finance & Audit Committee, on email@example.com (or by telephone on 07811 176048), or the Chairman, Vic Michel (firstname.lastname@example.org). More information about the Society is available on its website (www.srps.org.uk).
