Trustee Description:

Tyne & Wear Sport is a company limited by guarantee with charitable status and we are passionate about and dedicated to getting more people active through sport and physical activity. We are particularly focused on helping under-represented groups, those who have higher levels of inactivity, to become and remain active. To achieve this, we collaborate with a wide range of partners to improve the planning, co-ordination and delivery of sport and physical activity within Tyne & Wear.

To fill a skills gap within our Board, we are seeking to recruit a trustee with a legal background. The successful candidate will play an important part in the overall governance and strategic leadership of the charity and will have a specific role in advising about the legal issues relating to governing and operating a successful charity.

We are seeking candidates with an enthusiasm for sport / physical activity that have proven legal experience. The successful candidate will also be expected to demonstrate a range of qualities, including a commitment to excellent governance and a belief in the individual and societal benefits of a more active population. Given the need to meet the gender balance requirements of the Code for Sports Governance, we would especially welcome applications from female candidates.
