Board and policy council members

← Back to vacancies

Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce is seeking nominations for its Board and Policy Council.

We are looking for people who are as passionate about our aim of creating the buoyant, diversified regional economy that will enable our members and their employees to be more successful and prosperous, as we are and keen to actively help us deliver it. As non-executive directors, as well as providing strong governance, we ask Board members to bring sector expertise, use their networks to ‘open doors’, help with intelligence gathering and ensure we achieve our overall aims and targets.

The Chamber would particularly welcome applications from members in the following sectors: Third sector, skills, people/recruitment, finance and business. We are also keen to recruit Board members who show the potential to be future business leaders.  This is to ensure that there is a representative range of background and experience within the Board.

Policy Council members are expected to have a keen interest in the economic development of the region and willingness to help the Chamber in forming its policy agenda by collating, representing and promoting business interests, views and opinions on key issues.

Policy Council members are also invited to attend invite only roundtables with Government ministers and officials, take part in policy surveys, support the activities of the Chamber and promote Chamber membership to their contact network.

The Chamber would particularly welcome applications from members in the hospitality, digital, transport, fishing and tourism sectors.

We are also keen to recruit Policy Council members who show the potential to be future business leaders. This is to ensure that there is a representative range of backgrounds and experience within the Policy Council. As a privately funded, not-for-profit organisation these roles are, of course, unpaid but provide the opportunity to make a real difference as well as providing personal development and great networking opportunities.
