Board of Trustees Member

Enable Leisure and Culture is seeking two Trustees to join the Board and support the shaping of the health, social and culture programme in Wandsworth, a busy and diverse borough which benefits from proximity to the River Thames and some of London’s most iconic green spaces.

Enable is a registered Charity working in partnership with Local Authorities and Commission Groups to provide a wide range of services for communities which focus on delivering services within health, wellbeing and open spaces.

Do you want to want to be involved in the support and strengthening of local communities through the delivery of holistic services? Are you interested in promoting a healthier and happier lifestyle for residents by helping to provide services to improve health and wellbeing? Do you want to improve, broaden and improve access to local facilities and amenities? Have you worked or are working in a senior role?

If you do, becoming a Trustee of Enable could be the role for you. Working as a member of the Board, you will be responsible for working with the Executive in setting the strategy and overseeing service delivery. You will be enthusiastic about helping local communities and a keen champion of the services provided by Enable.

You will also have a keen eye for looking to the future of Enable and its plans to expand its range and location of services.

The Board is seeking individuals with proven management experience in two areas:

  1. Health & Wellbeing – particularly in relation to Commissioning Groups, Public Health, mental, physical and social programmes.
  2. Business growth, upscaling and commercial management, particularly in relation to internal and external business expansion.

The formal time commitment is four Board meetings a year and to attend the Annual General Meeting (which takes place in September). Trustees can also become members of Committees which meet prior to the Board. Additional time may be required to support the work of the Trust on location and at events.

If you are interested in joining us on this exciting journey as a Trustee, please apply today by emailing your CV to bturner@enablelc.org by Sunday 28 November.  

Informal interviews will take place week commencing Monday 6 December.
