Created/last updated: 15/09/2021
About this opportunity:
Community councils are the most local tier of statutory representation in Scotland • They bridge the gap between local authorities and communities and help to make public bodies aware of the opinions and needs of the communities they represent •
The Royal Burgh of St Andrews Community Council (RBSTACC) is looking for someone to type up the monthly notes/minutes of the full Community Council meeting (but not verbatim) from a zoom recording • This will become an historical record which is available to the public as well as Community Councilors •
It is a role that could be of interest to someone who is interested in the St Andrews Community area and in local government •
As it is from a live meeting zoom recording (due to the pandemic), there is no travel involved •
The volunteer will be required for about 3-4 hours per month to listen to the recording and to type up the minutes • There is also the option of attending the actual meeting remotely to get acquainted with the members • In time they hope to get back to face to face in person meetings • They are looking for a volunteer with Audio Typing and minutes composition with a reasonable typing speed •
Conversation about the aims and objects of the Community Council + list of the members. Any concerns may be discussed with the Convenor (chair) or Vice convenor (vice chair)
Out of pocket expenses paid?
Audio Typing and minutes composition with a reasonable typing speed
