Applications invited to become SMISA's next club board rep

Applications invited to become SMISA's next club board rep

As many of you will have seen, Alan Wardrop has decided to stand down as a St Mirren director. Alan first joined the board in 2016 and became one of SMISA’s four representatives in July 2021 after we became majority shareholders. We are sorry to see him move on but thank him again for his service during those six years.

Alan will formally finish up on November 19 and, if possible, we would like to have his successor in post by then. We are, therefore, now starting the recruitment process and are looking for expressions of interest in the role.

The successful candidate will be expected to act as the link between the club and SMISA boards, ensure member views are considered in club decisions, and have the skills and experience to make a positive contribution to the running of the football club.

New SMISA appointments to the club board are subject to the formal recruitment process we put in place two years ago through which both John Needham and Alex White were appointed.

That will see the SMISA board invite applications, shortlist and interview those who best fit the job description, and select a preferred candidate, who the members will be asked to approve. Ideally they will already be a SMISA member but we will consider all applications.

Anyone interested should contact [email protected] and we will send you an application pack.

Given the time constraints, the closing date for applications is October 17 with interviews scheduled to take place the following week subject to availability.
