The role of a Trustee
InspireAll is managed by paid staff, under the governance of a Board of Trustees, which is comprised of a minimum of three and maximum of eleven Trustees who are volunteers with a varied range of experience as business leaders in human resources, accounts, marketing, health and safety, catering. Board members have a responsibility regarding the governance of the charity in-line with The Charity Commission and to ensure adherence to InspireAll’s memorandum and articles of association.
In order to ensure good governance and the smooth operation of the business, there are clearly identified roles and responsibilities for Trustees. The Board holds formal meetings, regularly visits the facilities and has involvement in additional committees including Finance, Development and Human Resources. Annually a Strategic Planning Day is attended by the board of Trustees and Senior Management team to consider the long term strategy for the Charity.
Appointing a new Trustee and member to the Board
The current Board are looking to recruit people who have the skills to complement those already available and provide strategic direction and support for the management team. This will involve attending Board meetings, with a potential to be a member of the Board’s sub-committees as well as being able to offer advice and support to an enthusiastic management team.
Whilst an unpaid position, becoming a Board member is a rewarding experience with involvement within an innovative community and commercially aware organisation. InspireAll is striving to be the best provider of leisure and family centres in the locality and to positively enhance the health and wellbeing of the communities it serves.
