Voluntary role / reasonable expenses paid
- Are you motivated by changing the world for the better?
- Are you passionate about bringing people together to create happier and better connected communities?
- Do you have unique experiences and perspectives that will help grow a movement of national significance?
GoodGym is seeking 3 new trustees to guide its ambitious plans to grow its work across the UK. We’re looking for people who are passionate about the work that we do and the outcomes that we achieve who can support and oversee the successful development of our strategy and implementation. If you want to make a significant impact and help to challenge, develop and grow the organisation, we’d love to hear from you.
GoodGym is a multi-award winning charity that connects exercise with volunteering. Across 58 cities and boroughs its members run to help isolated older people and community projects. It’s shown to reduce isolation, improve community cohesion and to improve wellbeing for all involved. It is frequently cited as a leading social innovation by the government, mainstream press and leading think tanks. GoodGym’s impact and activity continues to grow and in this role you will play an important part in increasing our impact. For more information, please visit www.goodgym.org.
About the roles
GoodGym is expanding from its current 5 trustees to 7-8 trustees to recognise the growth in scale of our operations. GoodGym’s trustees have overall legal responsibility for the charity. Trusteeships are unpaid voluntary roles and are non-executive, meaning that they do not carry out the day to day work of the charity. They meet six times a year to oversee, support and hold-to-account the executive team. You do not need previous directorship or trustee experience in order to apply for these roles. As a trustee you will be expected to attend 7 meetings a year – 6 board meetings and one away day. The initial commitment from you would be a 2 year term. Meetings are usually held from 5-7pm in central London.
We particularly encourage candidates who can help increase the diversity of the board and the inclusivity of the charity. We also encourage candidates with experience or skills in one or more of the below areas to apply:
• Legal experience in charity, commercial or employment law
• Brand partnerships and sponsorship
• Accountancy or finance
How to apply:
Please apply with your CV and a concise, relevant cover letter in which you clearly demonstrate your understanding of our work and what you think you can bring to the organisation.
Send your CV and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Trustee"
Deadline for applications: 14th of February
