Organising Committee – Recruitment Statement

Following the successful bid to host the Island Games in Orkney in 2023, work will now focus fully on planning for the games themselves in 5 years’ time.  The newly formed Orkney2023 Island Games Committee are keen to recruit new Committee members who have the ability and skills to assist in the planning and delivery of this event.

Whilst an interest in sport is useful, it is by no means essential in this role and we are looking to secure the voluntary services of individuals with a wide range of experience, knowledge and skills, particularly in the following areas:

  • Event Planning
  • Fundraising and Funding Applications
  • Business/Project Management
  • Procurement
  • Marketing/PR
  • Communication
  • Strategic Planning
  • Governance
  • Health & Safety
  • Human Resource Management

We are looking for individuals who have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, can work as part of a team and are able to commit to a schedule of meetings which will take place from later this year until summer 2023. It is anticipated that committee meetings will be regular but infrequent (monthly?) initially, increasing in frequency in the last 18 to 24 months. Concomitant with this it is expected that workload will increase as 2023.
