Salary & Benefits
Closing Date23 May

Job Description

With several trustee terms coming to an end, we are now looking for new people to join the Board and support the Trust on its journey to set a new ambitious and innovative strategy from 2023.

We are seeking to recruit four (voluntary) Independent Trustees, including the role of Chairperson.

Active Sussex aspires to have a diverse Board, and welcomes applications from people who are involved (or would like to be) in our networks, particularly those from ethnically diverse communities, people living with a long term health condition and/or disability and self-identifying women. Given less than 3% of charity trustees are under 30 and as such are missing young people's perspectives, we encourage young people (over 18) to apply to increase representation of this age group on our board.

As a Trustee You will:

  • Provide strategic leadership - setting strategic goals within the business plan and ensure that effective monitoring is in place to evaluate progress

  • Contribute to effective board performance and management

  • Be a visible role model for Active Sussex by promoting and champion the Trusts vision and work within their own sector and its networks

  • Advocate for sport and physical activity in Sussex

  • Ensure that the diverse range of partners, communities and demographics are represented in the decision making process, in line with the Sport England Good Governance Code

  • Provide a two-way network of communication between partners within their own sector, its associated networks and Active Sussex
