Project Ability is now recruiting Board Members: closing date 20th May 2013.
2014 is our 30th anniversary; a significant achievement and testament to the efforts of our hard working staff team and the commitment of the Board.
At Project Ability we aim to have a spread of skills and experience within our Board. As a Board Member you will be able to offer the organisation experience and expertise in one or more of the following areas of work:
- Visual arts practice
- Learning disability
- Mental health and wellbeing
- Education and learning
- Health and social care
In new Board Members we are keen to find people who are willing to give the necessary time and effort to contribute to strategic planning, take part in events and support excellence in learning, development, delivery and training.
We are a leading visual arts organisation supporting people with disabilities aged from 5 years old to 90 plus to access the highest quality of artistic experience. We have high standards; we expect the best from our staff and engage with participants to deliver a programme that is excellent, challenging and thought provoking.
At Project Ability we make a clear distinction between “Governance” which is the overseeing responsibility of the Board, and “Management” of the organisation, which is the day to day and month by month operational work, which is the responsibility of the staff team.
The role of Board Members is to:
- ensure Project Ability operates within the limits of its Memorandum and Articles of Association
- ensure Project Ability functions within the legal and financial requirements of a company and charitable institution and complies with all relevant legislation or regulations
- be responsible for the overall guidance and strategic development of Project Ability
- conduct regular analysis of risks to the organisation’s ability to function effectively in both the short and longer term
- agree the annual budget and decide on major resource issues
- approve the annual accounts
- appoint and review senior staff
- ensure that the work of the organisation is done effectively and efficiently, and that the people who do the work are properly managed and supported.
- monitor performance against agreed objectives and targets
- represent and promote Project Ability externally
These responsibilities fall collectively on all the Members of the Board. In addition to these duties, each board member should use any specific personal knowledge or experience to help the Board reach sound decisions, plan, identify key issues and provide guidance on new initiatives.
Board meetings, at which regular attendance is required, are held every two months, usually on the 3rd Monday of the month and take place at Project Ability starting at 5.30pm.
Closing date 20th May 2013
