The Board of Trustees is responsible for the governance and strategic direction of the Charity. They determine policies and objectives while ensuring compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks. Trustees determine budgets and evaluate staff performances – safeguarding the financial health of the organsisation. They act with care and skill to reduce risks to the organsiation, and ensure transparency and accountability in decision-making. Furthermore, Trustees monitor and report the Charity’s progress to key stakeholders and regulators.

For this position, we hope to hear from strategic thinkers, who are able to remain objective and focus on the bigger picture during decision-making. The Trustees will be team players, who thrive when sharing their skills and knowledge. They will be committed to personal development, and strongly advocate for equality, diversity and inclusion.

In addition to these characteristics, the successful candidates will have experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • People who have been impacted by inequalities in sport and physical activity
