Govanhill Baths Board Members – Voluntary Positions
Expertise in finance, HR and property management preferred.
Govanhill Baths is looking for new board members who can bring specialist skills and knowledge to an exciting local project. We would like to recruit people with professional experience of finance, human resources and property management.
We have been awarded substantial grant money to bring the building back into operation. We have also secured community investment of over £280,000 by issuing community shares in the project and will be transferring our operations to a community benefit society when the building opens. Most community share holders are people who live locally and take a keen interest in the progress Govanhill Baths is making.
The refurbishment will bring the Ladies’ pool, Learners’ pool, Turkish Suite and Sauna into service as well as providing a gym, community kitchen/cafe and multi-purpose community spaces.
Throughout the refurbishment, Govanhill Baths will maintain a diverse programme of arts and wellbeing activities in the community, developing an outreach programme to keep people informed about the redevelopment and doing the ground work to put systems and procedures in place for when the building reopens. Govanhill Baths is now based in the Deep End in Nithsdale Street, where its staff are located and some arts activities take place.
Our current Board members are committed to helping the Trust re-open the Baths as a Wellbeing Centre and contribute to the social, cultural and built regeneration of Govanhill as a community on the Southside of Glasgow. This means that they have a high profile in the local community and are all approachable people. Board members are required to live within a mile of Govanhill Baths, which extends to Pollokshields, Mount Florida and Shawlands.
The Board currently meets on the first Tuesday of every month at 7:00pm at the Deep End in Nithsdale Street.
