Do you have the passion to get involved – A great opportunity to become a Trustee of this great leisure trust.

Slough Community Leisure Ltd (SCL) is a Leisure Trust established in 2000 offering incredible leisure and event venues, aimed to promote health and wellbeing in the local communities, in partnership with the Slough Borough Council. This partnership has gone from strength to strength and has led to some exciting improvements to services within Slough.

SCL now runs 11 sports and activity venues in the Thames Valley and provides services to over 1 million visitors each year. Over the first ten years the organisation is proud to have increased its customer visits and reduce its cost of service to Slough residents.

Its facilities include six fitness centres, two swimming pools, three sports halls, and a community events venue. In addition there are two indoor karting tracks, a tenpin bowling centre and an ice arena running through its subsidiary charity Absolutely Leisure.

Trustees meet six times a year in Slough for meetings that last between two and three hours. Providing more time is not essential but expert assistance would be very welcome.

The Board would welcome applications from anyone with skills that will contribute to the charity.

Following a recent skills audit of Board Members, they have identified particular knowledge gaps in the areas of marketing and the new strategic health service structures.

The new Trustee needs to demonstrate genuine belief that health and well-being are improved through physical activity. He/she needs to demonstrate how digital marketing can help promote our service. It would be an advantage if the trustee had an understanding of operating within the charity sector.

The organisation is particularly looking for someone with some or all of the following skills and attributes:

•  The successful incumbent would desirably have prior board level experience
•  Website Creation, Graphic Design, Social Networking,
•  Advertising and Communication, Events, Market Research, Fundraising, Sales, Public Relations
•  Marketing Strategy and Research
