Scottish Seabird Centre seeks new Chair for board of trustees

Award-winning marine conservation and education charity, the Scottish Seabird Centre, is recruiting a new Chair for the charity’s board of trustees.

This follows the news that current Chair, David Windmill, will be stepping down after 8 years leading the board. This is in line with the charity’s governance procedures as Mr Windmill has served two full terms. Mr Windmill will remain as Chair until a successful appointment and handover has been completed.
The charity is looking for the new Chair to help them deliver on their 2020-2025 strategic plan, and to build on the success of the recent refurbishment of their marine Discovery Experience, a five-star visitor attraction dedicated to inspiring and educating people about the Scottish marine environment.

The opportunity comes soon after the Scottish Seabird Centre revealed that significant support from individuals and organisations, following its first public appeal in 20 years, helped the charity manage the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

CEO Susan Davies said of the recruitment process: “David has been an asset to our charity, leading our Board through some challenging times. We will be sorry to lose him. We are now seeking to appoint a similarly enthusiastic and committed Chair who will steer the next phase of our journey as we look to further our conservation and education activities, whilst continuing to innovate within our visitor attraction.”

This is a voluntary role. Full details and application pack are available on the charity’s website www.seabird.org
