Board of Directors and Trustees Vacancy with Wrexham Tennis Centre
Wrexham Tennis Centre is looking for enthusiastic and dynamic individuals to join the Board of Directors/Trustees in developing all aspects of its strategy, governance and management.
The Centre, which is the biggest in Wales is a Community Indoor Tennis Centre, supported by the local authority, Sport Wales, the LTA and Tennis Wales. It is run by a charitable limited company with a volunteer Board currently of 5 Directors/Trustees, most of whom have been involved with the Centre since before it opened in 1990. We want to strengthen the team by bringing in new blood, new skills and knowledge and fresh ideas and enabling some of our longstanding members to stand down. We are looking particularly for people who can offer skills, knowledge and experience in one or more of the following areas:
- Safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults
- Financial management and accounting
- Human Resources and Employment Law
- Facilities management
- Fund raising
- Advertising and Marketing
- PR and communications
You do not have to be a tennis player, but a keen interest in community sport would be an advantage. As importantly, we are looking for people who would be able to demonstrate a commitment to the Centre and its ethos, aims and objectives and who are passionate about working with other Directors and the staff team to ensure its long term success.
Trustees would need to attend monthly Director’s meetings as well as occasional ad hoc contact internally and externally on matters related to their individual responsibilities. Additionally they will be asked to contribute to decision-making and strategy and policy development outside formal meetings. They should be able to establish a profile within the Centre by getting to know staff and coaches and attending some of our major events.
There is no remuneration, but you would have the satisfaction of being part of ensuring that we continue to provide and improve our fantastic facility and to create opportunities for everyone in the community to participate in tennis and to love the game.
