Trustees will be joining the organisation at an exciting time, with the bouldering centre due to open this year, and the full climbing facility in Spring 2022. 

If you have expertise and energy to commit to a highly visible local project and a hard-working team, we’d love to hear from you. All applications are welcome, but the board is particularly keen to hear from Trustees who’ve had previous board experience or have skills in Financial Management, Project management, Fundraising or Business Development.

  • Sub-committee and other necessary meetings are also arranged as required. 

Salary : Voluntary role. Reasonable expenses paid, in accordance with expenses policy. 

Application Details: If you think you have the skills and experience to match our requirements and wish to join a friendly and enthusiastic Board to make a difference to the local community, we would love to hear from you. This is an invigorating and dynamic role putting you at the very heart of the charity and it’s work while offering you the opportunity to work with passionate and like-minded individuals.
