Our Committee will review all application forms received, and invite suitable candidates to a selection day. This will be an Interview & exercise with senior members of the team, candidates will be judged on a variety of criteria.
If accepted, individuals will be invited to begin their training soon afterwards. During the next 6 months their performance as a group member, their level of commitment and skills are continually assessed.
For prospective trainees it is vital that the level of commitment to the Team is stressed at the outset and fully understood Volunteering is a significant undertaking and it will eat into days that would normally be spent relaxing, or with your family.
Over the period of a year the Team meets for over forty different events (training, fund raising ect) this does not include "Jobs" or Duty days, in practice, it means that most weeks will involve some kind of Team related event.
At the end of their probationary period, the Committee will consider the suitability of the trainee and their performance through the period. If successful they will be invited to become a Full Team Member.
For practical reasons (cost and time spent training) we are looking for individuals are settled in Glasgow or surrounding region and demonstrate a long term commitment to Scotservs.
