Secretary to the Herts Disability Sports Foundation (HDSF) Board of Trustees

Detailed description

The main purpose of the role is to provide a high quality professional service to ensure the effective delivery and recording of Trustee meetings. The individual will be working closely with the Chair, Board of Trustees, and Chief Operating Officer - who currently fills the role of Secretary. The successful candidate should be an effective communicator who is good at building relationships, has excellent organisational skills and maintains high standards of governance.


The Board meets face to face on a quarterly basis and online in the intervening months (total 12). We also have two Working Groups (Governance & Finance, Risk & Safeguarding) which meet quarterly, usually online.

We are looking for a person with experience of minute taking, managing the organisation of meetings and working with a Board. A background in governance would be ideal as the role provides the opportunity to be part of improvements in governance and general efficiency.


In return, we can offer the opportunity to learn more about the 'inner workings' of a charity, contribute to improving the processes and procedures of a CIO and you will hopefully enjoy attending the meetings.

About Herts Disability Sports Foundation (HDSF)

HDSF is a relatively young charity (established March 2014) and has developed from a one-person operation to a larger thriving organisation and employer which has experienced an enormous number of changes. Our mission is to “Provide and support opportunities in sports and physical activity that can be accessed by everyone, whether it be through participation, volunteering coaching or education in a supportive and non-judgmental environment.” Rather unexpectedly, the Pandemic afforded us a unique opportunity to quickly change and adapt our delivery methods and services – we were perfectly placed to use this challenge to diversify and grow as an organisation.
