Vacancies for committee members at LGM

August 10, 2016

Alsalam alikum wa rahmateh Allah wa barakateh If you are someone who can take on a challenge, problem-solve and have a can do attitude, then the Leeds Grand Mosque would like to hear from you. The Leeds Grand Mosque (LGM), located at 9 Woodsley Road, Leeds, has a very diverse and multicultural community. LGM is one of the largest Mosques in Leeds with a regular congregation of well over 1500 Muslims. Over the last two decades, it has developed to become a truly lively and spirited Mosque, seeking to encapsulate the very ideals on which it now thrives as opposed to being simply a place of worship. The Board is currently made up of 5 knowledgeable, dedicated and valued volunteers from a wide ranging background that ensure LGM operates effectively and progresses in accordance with our governing documents. LGM is recruiting 3 new Committee members and values the benefits that a diverse Committee can. All applicants will receive equal consideration. However, we are particularly interested in a candidate with a background in managing women's provision, social and/or community development and work with new Muslims at a strategic level either in the private or third sector.Candidates should also be able to demonstrate that they can make a useful contribution to the Committee and be a good representative for their community. Membership is non-remunerated and would require individuals to prepare for and attend approximately 8-12 meetings per year and to participate in the Committee sub groups (including additional meetings) throughout the year on an “as required” basis. Applicants must pass the Charity Commission eligibility criteria, a disqualification check and DBS check if successful
