Thrive, Connect and Fit for Purpose
Our staff structure is based on a common framework through which we report to our members and funders and the Scottish Government. We categorise all our activities into 3 broad agendas – Thrive, Connect and Fit for Purpose (Chief Executive team & Board).
The Chief Executive team is responsible for ensuring that GCVS is 'Fit for Purpose’. This agenda reflects the internal activity we undertake to ensure that as an employer and lead Third Sector organisation we have strong, effective governance, leadership and management and robust financial and organisational systems and processes.
Through our Connect agenda we seek to support the sector’s collective voice and improve collaborative working by co-ordinating and linking organisations together, providing opportunities for networking and joint working, and finding common cause in the best interest of their wider community.
Our ‘Thrive’ agenda reflects the extensive work we do with Third Sector organisations, providing them with an expanding range of practical and technical support services, to improve their management, governance and sustainability.
GCVS is a registered charity and is voluntary-managed by board representatives from our member organisations and partner organisations.
