BBC Children in Need seek new members for Scotland Advisory Committee

BBC Children in Need is looking for new members to join their Scotland Advisory Committee and to appoint a new Chair for the Committee.

They welcome applications from those who share Children in Needs commitment to support children and young people across Scotland to be safe, happy, secure, and provided with the opportunities they need to reach their potential.

Each Advisory Committee member is part of a small team, who collectively bring a range of skills, knowledge and experience including: working with children and young people; the voluntary sector; disability; social services; equal opportunities; business planning and finance; the rights of the child, and lived experience of some of the challenges Children in Need seek to address.

The Chair is a member of the Advisory Committee and so has the same responsibilities as the other Committee members.  In addition the Chair will be responsible for leading the Advisory Committee meeting. In their absence the Vice-Chair will take on this responsibility.  Both the Chair and Vice Chair will be expected to demonstrate unbiased, clear and supportive leadership; an ability to manage a diverse range of personalities and experiences, and lead the Committee through difficult decision-making by placing the balance of emphasis on information and objectivity.

Both roles have an application closing date of 5pm Thursday March 11.
