Trustee – voluntary

Active Gloucestershire is a pioneering and bold organisation with a clear strategy that aims to get 30,000 of the least active people in the county enjoying the benefits that an active life can bring. Our approach to doing this is called Gloucestershire Moves and unites people and organisations from across the county in a social movement to get people active. This is an opportunity to join an organisation determined to make a step change across Gloucestershire.

We are currently seeking a trustee with HR experience to replace our outgoing expert in this area. We are also keen to have diverse Board representation from across the Gloucestershire Moves movement so would welcome applications from people who have been involved (or would like to be) in our networks, particularly young people, women, disabled people and those from a black, Asian or minority ethnic community.

This is an exciting opportunity for a leader who has great interpersonal skills, is passionate about trying new things and seeks to encourage the organisation to be innovative and entrepreneurial.
