Killin Mountain Rescue Team Seeks New Chair of Trustees

Established in 1967, KMRT has been a cornerstone of community safety, providing invaluable assistance to those in need within the Scottish wilderness.

As a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO), KMRT is regulated by the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) and plays a crucial role in mountain rescue operations.

The role of Chair of Trustees presents a unique opportunity to lead a dedicated team of volunteers committed to saving lives and ensuring the safety of outdoor enthusiasts.

The organisation is looking for an experienced leader passionate about the outdoors and mountain safety, capable of guiding the Board and membership towards achieving its ambitious goals for recruitment, training, and operational effectiveness.

The ideal candidate will possess strong leadership qualities, excellent communication skills, and a strategic mindset, with a commitment to promoting inclusivity and diversity within the team.

Experience in charity governance, fundraising, and a background in hill walking or mountain activities are highly desirable.

This volunteer position offers the chance to make a significant impact on the effectiveness and direction of KMRT, ensuring the team continues to provide critical search and rescue services.

The role involves coordinating the efforts of Trustees, Operational Managers, and Team Members, fostering a culture of excellence and teamwork.

Applications are invited from individuals who share KMRT’s dedication to mountain safety and have the vision to lead the team into the future.

The closing date for applications is March 10th, 2024, with interviews and informal meetings with team members scheduled for late March.

This is an unremunerated role, reflecting the voluntary nature of mountain rescue services.

However, it offers the satisfaction of contributing to an essential service that makes a real difference in people’s lives.

Interested candidates are encouraged to apply, joining KMRT in its mission to save lives and promote safety in Scotland’s mountains.
