Trustees needed for “life changing” work at YMCA Bolton
YMCA Bolton an independent local charity is looking for Trustees to join its Board, particularly welcoming those wishing to transform the lives of young people in Bolton and its surrounding areas. As a Christian, international, youth movement, working with people of all faiths and non our aim is the
“…transformation of communities so that all young people can truly belong, contribute and thrive…”
Julian Finch Chief Executive says …
“Without the unwavering support and dedication of our Trustees we would not be able to carry out the life changing work we do in Bolton. In order to continue this journey we are seeking to increase our Trustee capacity:.
High youth unemployment, homelessness, crime and public sector cuts mean that these are challenging times. Thanks to the Trustees, past and present, the YMCA has been active in Bolton since 1884 and continues to position itself as a valuable part of the community.
YMCA Bolton is now at an exciting time of development and wishes to encourage new people to join the Board to support the planned changes that will increase our impact, extend our influence, and shape a sustainable future by working better together with our partners, locally, nationally and internationally.
After 7 years of invaluable leadership and support our present Chair is retiring and we are seeking to recruit a Leader with enthusiasm and vision to lead the expansion of our Trustee Board and drive forward the organizational cultural change which has only just begun.
We are looking to recruit a Chair and three Trustees and invite applications from individuals with expertise in the following areas:
- Business development in the private or public sector;
- Property development or management;
- Marketing / media
- Human Resources
Previous experience as a Trustee or working at Board level is desirable but not essential
Commitment: 2 evenings per month and ad hoc attendance at events to represent YMCA Bolton .
Expressions of interest are invited by e-mail to our Chief Executive Julian Finch (Julian@boltonymca.co.uk)
