In celebration of Scotland’s Year of Young People, Women In Tourism have launched a campaign to recruit a young person to join us as a Board member throughout 2018.  WIT was created to motivate, encourage, support and inspire women across the sector, and we recognise the importance of the themed year and the opportunity to support our next generation of industry leaders.

Joining the Women In Tourism board throughout 2018, applications are sought from those working within the Scottish tourism sector who are aged between 18-34 years old.  The successful individual will play a key role as you work with the rest of the board to develop and deliver the work of the organisation, with particular responsibility for delivering a Year of Young People industry event during the year.

  5. Lead on chairing the December 2018 Women In Tourism board meeting
