Summary

We are currently looking for an experienced Trustee with knowledge and understanding of the function and governance of Charity Trustee Boards.

Detailed description

As Vice Chair, the successful candidate will support both the Chair and Trustees to develop best practice in Board performance and impact on achieving HDSF’s strategic objectives. They will, on occasion, deputise for the Chair and will have extensive experience of running effective meetings. They will have a high level of interpersonal skills allowing them to work in a collaborative manner with the Chair, Trustees and Senior Management Team whilst being able to provide an alternative perspective. As Vice Chair they will support the development and support of our recently established Trustee working groups, sharing their experience as a Trustee and using their personal networks to support the work of the Board. Experience of working with a disability related charity is not essential but a passion for equality would be key to any appointment.  

 

In return, we offer the opportunity to join a diverse and lively Board of Trustees. We are passionate about HDSF and have a keen interest in the disability community and physical activity. We each bring a different set of skills to the Board (which we think is a real positive) and we try to ensure that each Trustee has the opportunity to make a difference to HDSF, using their personal and professional skills.  


Full details of the role, including the person spec and application details can be found on our website through Get Involved/Vounteering.

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.
