Seeking New Board Directors
Could you be a new Board Director of Visit West Lothian?
Visit West Lothian, West Lothian’s destination promotion organisation, is seeking new Board Directors and a Chair Person during an exciting phase at the company.
Established in 2008, Visit West Lothian is committed to promoting the tourism offer in West Lothian and acting as collaborator within the sector.
West Lothian’s tourism sector has seen strong growth over the past ten years. During this time the economic impact of our visitor industry has seen an increase of almost 20%, and visitor numbers to West Lothian’s top paid attractions have risen by an impressive 53%. West Lothian has also experienced notable expansion in its smaller accommodation sector reporting increased investment in the area’s retail and attraction assets. With a central location, strong transport links, close proximity to the 2 major cities and Edinburgh Airport, West Lothian has a huge opportunity to embed tourism as a major economic driver in the area.
In order for you to be successfully appointed as Chair Person or one of our Board Directors you will need the passion, commitment, drive and presence to contribute to promoting West Lothian effectively and encouraging partnership working across the sector.
We are looking for West Lothian based tourism related operators or practitioners who would like to contribute to raising the profile of West Lothian, helping to deliver Visit West Lothian’s Strategic Action Plan 2016-20. Excellent communication, networking and relationship-building skills are important strengths to bring to the role as well as diplomacy and a good understanding of your field of expertise. We are particularly interested in individuals from the hotel, conference and digital marketing sector and those who have experience in PR, membership growth and commercialising organisations. As a proactive Board Director you will have the opportunity to make a real difference to West Lothian’s future. As a Chair Person we are looking for an experienced, committed and successful candidate who has the proficiency in leadership at Board level.
